The 36 Year Old Oliver Hardy
30 October 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

At the age of 36, Oliver Hardy was still waiting for his break in Hollywood. He was not living below the poverty line, nor was he wanting for money. But he was living an unfulfilled existence in Hollywood, and needed a short film with his working partner, Stan Laurel, to lift their careers.
