‘Another nice documentary’

Currently in production, ‘On The Trail of Stan and Ollie’ is an affectionate documentary telling the story of comedy legends, Laurel and Hardy.

Following hot on the heels of the recent BAFTA nominated film, ‘Stan and Ollie’, we’re delighted to be producing this brand new documentary in collaboration with notable Laurel and Hardy aficionado, Ross Owen.  Well known actors talk us through their favourite scenes and show how Stan and Ollie continue to influence their own work and wider popular culture.

Laurel and Hardy historians and fans from around the world share their fascinating stories, some of which have never been heard before.

We also follow the personal journey of Stan Laurel’s great granddaughter, Cassidy Cook, as she goes in search of her grandfather’s theatrical roots at the world’s oldest music hall - The Panopticon in Glasgow, Scotland.

Shot on location in LA and Glasgow and full of anecdotes from those who knew Stan and Ollie best, this documentary brings ‘The Boys’ and their genius to a new generation of fans.

Now seeking distribution and co-production.
