I just came across this and wanted to share it.

Looks like it will be awesome. It truly is a interesting story. Stan was the brains and manager of everything.
That looks like it should be pretty good. I hope you don’t mind, Herb but the following video popped up with the real pair and their adventures with the Model T. In many cases, the Model T was the star of their films. I hope the T is prominently featured in the movie. Jim Patrick
Thanks. I will look forward to it.
A BBC production ..... will it be shown in USA theater's ???
In 1997, before he died of a drug overdose, Chris Farley was being considered for the roll of Rosco "Fatty" Arbuckle, who was a silent era movie comedian whose career was ruined when, at one of his wild parties, a woman named Virginia Rappe died under mysterious circumstances. Chris who was disappointed and depressed over the direction his career had taken, was very much looking forward to the roll.
Though Chris Farley was obese, he had an amazing amount of grace and ability for physical humor. He was also very nice and loved by virtually everyone. Had he lived, I'm sure the Fatty Arbuckle movie would have been a success and made Chris Farley into a superstar and I can imagine that it would have been Chris Farley who would have been the first choice for the roll of Oliver "Babe" Hardy.

I can't wait to watch it. Charlie Chaplin and Stan & Ollie had a major impact of my love for Model T car. I will look forward to it for sure. Thank you to share it.
I remember when they would play Laurel and Hardy movies on regular TV on Sundays. Mostly through the 70s and 80s. Now I live not far from Harlem GA where Oliver Hardy was from. There is a small museum there and they have a yearly festival.
I wonder if that replica of their squished T that was for sale recently will be in the movie?
If T’s are featured in the movie, I hope none are destroyed to make movie props. Jim Patrick
Having read extensively and done some research, I highly doubt that the two ever had an argument as depicted in the trailer.
However, I sincerely hope that this movie will spark an interest among the younger folks in the two funniest men that ever existed.
I remember when I was doing a lot of directing of high school plays, I mentioned Laurel and Hardy. They never heard of them and they thought it was one name: Laurleandhardy!
We would occasionally have movie nights for the drama kids as teaching tools. So, I showed them "Way Out West". They LOVED L and H!!!! It did my heart good to see how those two could make those teens laugh out loud and hard.
Here is a link to the Museums Facebook page if anyone is interested. They operate off of donations only and are working to refurbish the towns old one screen theater as the new location for the museum.
Hi Marty. We can never know that. While we’d like to imagine that there was never a cross word or hurt feeling between them, they were human and had the same emotions as all of us. They were best pals and partners for 40 years and loved eachother with a love that only time, mutual experiences and combined memories can create. Even married couples with great love and respect for eachother have disagreements and misunderstandings and when they are able to work through these times, without leaving and choosing to stay, they come out stronger on the other side and I’m sure that Stan and Ollie were no different and were only strengthened by these misunderstandings.

Looking forward to January......
Stan and Ollie
