The incomparable comic genius was born 121 years ago today. Let’s take a look, making sure we remember him now and in another 121 years.

It might not show between the cracks of all our appreciation for horror, exploitation, crime dramas, drama dramas, classic sci-fi and all the other bits of lost, obscure classics we throw at you on Trailers From Hell, but we’re pretty big comedy fans as well. Sure, you can find the occasional Jerry Lewis movie or a Peter Sellers picture or something by The Three Stooges, but you can’t — outside of John Landis talking about When Comedy Was King — find a lot of talk about the early days of film comedy.

And, specifically, we don’t have much about Stan Laurel — who was born on June 16, 121 years ago — and Oliver Hardy*. Which carries with it both a touch of irony and a hint of shame. »
