The 24 Year Old Oliver Hardy
29 November 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

In the year when Charles Chaplin signed up with Mutual Films to write, direct, produce and act in his own two reelers, Oliver Hardy earned his living by acting in one reelers such as 'Hired and Fired'. He would have to wait until 1927 when he teamed up with Stan Laurel in the silent classic short film, 'You're Darn Tootin', before he would receive the same level of fame as Chaplin.
