Actor, screenwriter, and producer Stan Laurel was born to British stage performers. He started acting on stage in his mid-teens in music halls and theaters before touring the U.S. in 1910 and 1912 as Charlie Chaplin's understudy. He remained in the States to perform in vaudeville and, in 1917, supplemented his stage work by appearing as clownish misfit types in comedy shorts often spoofing dramatic films of the period. One of these was a two-reeler called Lucky Dog (1918), in which he appeared totally by accident with Oliver Hardy. The two would not appear together again until 1926, when they both found themselves working for comedy producer Hal Roach. Laurel, who had been hired by Roach as a gagman/director, was persuaded to appear in front of the camera and, thus, auspiciously again with Hardy. It soon became obvious that the two men had a certain comic onscreen chemistry, and they ended up starring together as an incredibly popular comedy team in more fifty films in the 1930s and early '40s, with their 1932 three-reeler The Music Box winning an Oscar for Best Short Subject. Laurel, the creative member of the team, had numerous run-ins with producer Roach; the actor wanted the team's films to aspire to the higher quality productions of their contemporaries, while Roach was firmly content with maintaining a low-budget norm. Laurel had a few short-lived victories, serving as producer on the team's Our Relations (1936) and Way out West (1937). The team left Roach in 1940 to seek more artistic control over their work, but were given even less at Fox and MGM. In the late '40s and early '50s, they enjoyed touring English music halls while continuing to make films. After Hardy's death in 1957, Laurel stopped performing but kept active. He died from a heart attack in 1965.

  • His light blue eyes almost ended his movie career before it began. Until the early 1920s, filmmakers used black-and-white Orthochromatic film stock, which was "blue blind." Hal Roach cameraman George Stevens (the same George Stevens who would later become the acclaimed producer/director) knew of panchromatic film and was able to get a supply of it from Chicago. This new film was sensitive to blue and recorded Laurel's pale blue eyes in a more natural way. George Stevens became Laurel's cameraman on his short films at Roach. When Laurel teamed with Oliver Hardy, the team made George Stevens their cameraman of choice.
  • Light blue eyes
  • Only son died 9 days after birth in 1930
  • Laurel first apeared with his future partner, Oliver Hardy, in A Lucky Dog (1921), which was filmed in 1919, but not released until 1921.
  • He always thought that his "whining face" was humiliating, but the producers forced him to do it in most of his movies since the public loved it.
  • Interred at Forest Lawn (Hollywood Hills), Los Angeles, California, USA.
  • Suffered a nervous breakdown on the death of his long time film partner and friend, Oliver Hardy, and according to his friends, never fully recovered.
  • Turned down a cameo part in Stan Kramer's farce film comedy It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World (1963).
  • Laurel had always been a fan of westerns, and after he had achieved success, his company, Stan Laurel Productions, financed a series of musical westerns starring a singing cowboy named Fred Scott. The films were made for and released by the independent Spectrum Pictures, rather than Hal Roach Studios, which made L&H's films, or MGM, which released them. The Fred Scott westerns seldom, if ever, made any money, but Laurel's enthusiasm for them never waned until his accountants showed him that they were getting to be a major drain on his finances, at which time he reluctantly dropped his participation.
  • Subject on one of five 29¢ US commemorative postage stamps celebrating famous comedians, issued in booklet form 29 August 1991. He is shown with his partner Oliver Hardy. The stamp designs were drawn by caricaturist Al Hirschfeld. The other comedians honored in the set are Edgar Bergen (with alter ego Charlie McCarthy); Jack Benny; Fanny Brice; and Bud Abbott and Lou Costello.
  • Appears on sleeve of The Beatles' "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" album.
  • He & Mae Laurel lived as a common law couple as Mae was legally married to someone in her native Australia when she met Stan in 1918. They parted in 1925 with mutual consent & Mae returned to Australia.
  • At the time of Oliver Hardy's death in 1957, Stan was too ill to attend his late partner's funeral.
  • Had said that out of all the impersonations done of him, he liked actor Dick Van Dyke's the best. Van Dyke even got to perform that impersonation on one of the episodes of "The Dick Van Dyke Show" (1961) and after it premiered, he called Laurel to ask his opinion. Laurel said he liked everything but one detail, the hat wasn't right. Van Dyke said he found Laurel's number in a Santa Monica, CA phone book.
  • Laurel and Hardy's films had and still have great success in Italy where they are known as "Stallio and Ollio". Their voices being dubbed into Italian in a very funny and colorful way, accentuates their funny lines.
  • He was voted, along with comedy partner Oliver Hardy, the 45th Greatest Movie Star of all time by Entertainment Weekly.
  • The death of his partner Oliver Hardy left him a broken man, so much so that he fell into a deep depression and swore never to do comedy again. He didn't. In the eight years between Hardy's death and his own he repeatedly turned down offers to do public appearances
  • Laurel & Hardy have been and continue to be very popular in Germany under the name of "Dick und Doof" (Fatty and Stupid).
  • Father of Lois Laurel, who appeared with him in The Chimp (1932).
  • Fell off a platform and tore ligaments in his right leg during the filming of Babes in Toyland (1934).
  • An extra named John Wood from the film Babes in Toyland (1934) sued him and his stunt double, Ham Kinsey, claiming back injuries after Laurel and Kinsey threw him in the ducking pond on the set. The lawsuit specified ,500 in damages, but was settled out-of-court.
  • Is portrayed by Jim Plunkett in Harlow (1965/II)
  • Dick Van Dyke delivered the eulogy at Laurel's funeral
  • He was greatly admired by Jerry Lewis. When Lewis had his own production company in the early 1960s, he repeatedly tried to hire Stan for his creative team.

  • Portrayed by Matthew Cottle in Chaplin (1992).
  • Stan was highly admired by Peter Sellers. Sellers claimed that the "Laurel"-character was his great inspiration when he created the "gardener"-character in Being There (1979).
