Shop Laurel & Hardy: 

The international documentary about the lives and work of Stan Laurel & Oliver Hardy

An international documentary written and directed by Andreas Baum

The international documentary is presenting - besides a lot of funny clips from the best Laurel & Hardy movies - a look behind the scenes and never before published color footage of Stan & Babe and a lot of private photographs, recently discovered archive footage of Laurel & Hardy, rare or unpublished film stills, posters etc.

The documentary was shot on location in the USA, Great Britain, France, Italy, Austria, Netherlands and Germany.

The film is presenting interviews with Laurel & Hardy experts like Hal Roach, Lucille Hardy-Price, Richard W. Bann, Tyler St. Mark, Bart Williams, Chuck McCann and Jim MacGeorge, Phillis Coates, Mark Greenhow or Jean Darling and friends of Stan & Babe like Booth Colman, Jerry Lewis or Marcel Marceau.

Even Stan Laurels daughter Lois Laurel Hawes has given the author an exclusive interview. That way the documentary is telling very emotionally the story of the worldwide most beloved comedy team: the story of THEIR LIVES AND MAGIC.

This documentary was broadcasted with a running time of 90 minutes very successfully in Germany and France on tv at the beginning of the year at prime time and got a very positive feedback.

Now the author is presenting his 15 minutes longer Director´s Cut as well as 70 minutes of unpublished bonus features.
