Laurel and Hardy

Laurel and Hardy were an iconic comedy duo during the middle of the 20th century. The pair began their careers all the way back in the silent film era and eventually made the transition to “talkies” as well. They appeared in over 100 films together, and were trailblazers for comedy.

Here at Screenbid, we’re preparing to launch an auction of some iconic Laurel and Hardy memorabilia. If you’re a fan of the duo, then this is definitely something to keep on your radar.
