Charley Chase and Oliver Hardy
12 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

During the 1920's, both Oliver Hardy and Stan Laurel wrote and directed their own material in order to develop their art. Charley Chase also played a part in this process, and 'Be Your Age' is an example of how he mentored Hardy. The development was being sourced by Hal Roach.
