This is a chronological outline of events related to the lives and films of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. The timeline runs vertically down the page, with the oldest events appearing at the top and the most recent events appearing at the bottom. It is divided by decade, and features many birthdays, deaths, film releases and other relevant events.

This page is divided into three boxes, or "frames." When you select a decade from the Menu Frame (below), the timeline for that ten year period will be displayed in the Timeline Frame (this one). Use the Navigation Frame (at top) to navigate back to other pages in this website. Click on the question mark in the Menu Frame to return to this introduction.
