NOTES

According to Leo McCarey, one of the creative forces (along with Fred Roach) behind the Laurel and Hardy team: "[Laurel] was one of the rare comics intelligent enough to invent his own gags. Laurel was remarkably talented, while Hardy wasn't. This is the key to the Larel-Hardy association. Throughout their lives [I was one of their intimates], Laurel insisted on earning twice as much money as Hardy. He said he was twice as good and twice as important, that he wrote the film and participated in its creation, while Hardy was really incapable of creating anything at all--it was astonishing that he could even find his way to the studio." --From "A Biographical Dictionary of Film" by David Thompson (New York: Alfred A Knopf, 1994)

"Forget Chaplin. Stan was the greatest." --Buster Keaton, reportedly overheard at Laurel's funeral
