LAUREL

HARDY

THE HAL ROACH YEARS


Hal Roach Studios, Culver City

This is a list of the films featuring Laurel & Hardy produced by Hal Roach, together with our ratings for each.

We may look into work produced by other studios at some point, but the Hal Roach films are considered to be their best.


"A friend once asked me what comedy was. That floored me. What is comedy?
I don't know. Does anybody? Can you define it? All I know is that I learned how to get laughs, and that's all I know about it. You have to learn what people will laugh at, then proceed accordingly."
 - Stan Laurel

"The world is full of Laurel and Hardys. I saw them all the time as a boy at my mother's hotel. There's always the dumb, dumb guy, who never has anything bad happen to him, and the smart guy who's even dumber than the dumb guy, only he doesn't know it."
 - Oliver Hardy
