The 29 Year Old Oliver Hardy
26 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

At the age of 29, Oliver Hardy was not academy award material when he acted in this slapstick comedy, 'The Bell Hop'. Although he was in the business for seven years as an actor, writer and director, he did not have his other half, he was in silent comedy, and personally, he just didn't make me laugh at this stage in his career.
