Laurel & Hardy were an enduringly popular comedy duo who made many popular films in the 1930's. Initially popular in the silent era, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy scored big with "Talkies" as well. Their defining role was in "Busy Bodies." Other notableLaurel & Hardy films include: "Men O' War," "Sons of the Desert," "Way Out West," and "Babes in Toyland."
