LAUREL & HARDY: STAN LAUREL
Signed Typed Letter (1962) in a humorous vein, advising friends on how to smuggle booze into a Baptist affair
Typed Letter signed: "Stan", 1 page, 8x10. Santa Monica, California, 1962 November 29. On personal letterhead to "Dear Jennie and Jack". In full [all spellings are Hardy's]: "Thanks yours, 20th inst. Pleased you like the stationery - rest assured I wo'nt throw any of it in the waste basket. I have other better use for it.!! (the colors look pretty hanging on a string in a 'Two Holer'.!! Note you did'nt hear from Alan King - its very possible he has'nt recd it yet. That must have been a pretty dull affair at the Babtist Church for you trying to get a 'bun' on with a cup of tea - next time have Lincoln figure out a formula to make 'Scotch' or 'Burbon' tablets, you can say they are saccharin.!! Sorry Jack you have to go through that Cough routine every time you smoke - guess there's a nothing can be done except stop smoking - do menthal cigarettes bother you? If not, put on a Penguin suit and smoke 'COOL'.!! I shall look forward to hearing from Frieda - hope she will have a chance to drop in & visit with us. Trust you had a happy Thanksgiving, we had a little celebration with Eda's Sister-in-law & her niece and little boy, They fixed a Turkey and trimmings at their home - brought it over here - had a nice time - frankly am not too fond of Turkey, I prefer 'Ocean Pheasant' (a kipper with a feather in it.!) Bye now - take care of yourselves. Bestest from us both here. As ever". Stan Laurel (1890-1965), born Arthur Stanley Jefferson in Ulverston, England, toured the U.S. in 1910 and 1912 as Charlie Chaplin's understudy. He stayed in America to appear on vaudeville and in several comedy shorts, including one with an accidental pairing with Oliver Hardy (1892-1957), Lucky Dog, in 1918. In 1926, after separate careers, Laurel and Hardy worked together once more for director Hal Roach, who noticed their on-screen chemistry and persuaded them to join forces as a team to make comedies. From 1927-1950, Laurel and Hardy appeared in over 100 movies, including 27 feature films and the 1932 three-reeler, The Music Box, which won an Academy Award for Best Short Subject. In the late 1940s and early 1950s, the comedy legends also toured English music halls as well as continuing to make films. Laurel stopped performing after Hardy's death in 1957, although he appeared in archival appearances in a number of documentaries. The "we" in this letter was a reference to Laurel's fifth wife, Ida Kitaeva Lauren, to whom he was married from 1946 until his death. Normal mailing folds - affecting signature at "n". Pencil erasures and stains on verso. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
