and HARDY Books
The British Tours

1940s, the two comedians did three major stage tours of USA cities,
between making films for 20th Century Fox, and MGM. A fourth tour found
them entertaining the troops on bases in and around the Caribbean.
and Hardy's screen career
was over, Laurel returned to the British Variety stage, and took with
his American partner, Oliver Hardy. This was quickly followed by two
spells in Europe - one being a stage tour of Denmark, Sweden, France,
and Belgium - the second being a year spent making their last film, Atoll K, in France.
And so what of the accounts of all the years these comic geniuses spent on stage? Where are they? Laurel & Hardy films have spawned hundreds of books and thousands of articles, but written work on Stan and Ollie's stage shows wouldn't fill one magazine, much less a book. Not, that it is, until along came the four books: LAUREL and HARDY The British Tours; LAUREL and HARDY The European Tours; LAUREL and HARDY The US Tours; and CHAPLIN Stage by Stage (which also details 'STAN LAUREL The Fred Karno Tours')
