Oliver Hardy

(Norvell Hardy)
actor
Born: 1/18/1892

The portly half of the Laurel and Hardy comedy team, he and Stan Laurel made more than 110 films together over some twenty years. Recognized for their trademark slapstick humor, they turned out dozens of short films, including the Oscar-winning The Music Box (1932), before turning to feature-length works such as Sons of the Desert (1934), Way Out West (1937), and The Flying Deuces (1939). Hardy appeared in two films without Laurel, The Fighting Kentuckian (1949) and Riding High (1950).

Died: 8/7/1957
