Daphne Pollard, Stan Laurel, Lona Andre, Betty Brown, Oliver Hardy, and Iris Adrian
I’ve seen more and more people talking about Laurel and Hardy movies the past few years than I have in many years…. maybe ever. I love it. While I hate that it’s perhaps tied to people wanting to escape hard times, I love that (once again) Laurel and Hardy are lifting spirits when they need it the most.
The photos here are from their hilarious 1936 film Our Relations. The movie stars Daphne Pollard, Stan Laurel, Alan Hale, Sidney Toler (yes, one of the Charlie Chans!) Lona Andre, Betty Brown, Oliver Hardy, and Iris Adrian.
I have recently become such a huge fan of both Iris Adrian and Lona Andre. I hadn’t seen either of them in many films but, after watching a few, they now have a huge fan sitting here in Kentucky chugging on coffee and searching for them on eBay.
It can be a challenge to find Our Relations on television or on dvd (as a single film). It, unfortunately, doesn’t appear to be on Prime Video yet, either. The only place I have personally been able to find it is as a mini collection on dvd on Amazon. It’s very inexpensive and more than worth ordering.
