Laurel Before Hardy

By Jenny Owen-Pawson and Bill Mouland
Westmoreland Gazette, Kendal, England
142 Pages; 1984
ISBN 902272-51-9 (Hardbound)

This biography examines Stan Laurel's youth in England, long before his teaming up with Oliver Hardy. Most of the book deals with Laurel before he even was Laurel (Stan was born Author Stanley Jefferson). There is a modest amount of text, accompanied by many rare photos (photos of Stan's relatives and places where he grew up...not movie stills). Some letters from Stan to his fans are also reproduced at the end of the book.
