"Stan and Ollie" (2018)

Recommended Posts

I was dimly aware of this movie when it arrived in theaters in late December of last year. However, BBC America's "The Graham Norton Show" featured the actors playing Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy,

so I'd like to point out this film, which is playing locally at an "Art House" theater 30+ miles away. And now, for those who've never heard the lyrics to "Dance of the Cuckoos," here it is: "Dance of the Cuckoos" (1932) See you "Way Out West," you "Sons of the Desert.";)

I remember seeing this on TV during the VCR years, but it had all the impact of wet cement. Who would play "Bud Abbot" and "Lou Costello" today? Would any of today's Hipsters even know "Who's on first?" Hollyweird could do a "flipped version" with Black comedians from the Comedy Central talent pool to send up the "humorous Blackface politicians" of recent times. (But Key & Peele have better things to do these days.)

Strolling around YouTube, I've found something else...
