Laurel And Hardy’s Jewish Connections – The Jewish Press – JewishPress.com

| April 20, 2022

Englishman Stan Laurel (1890-1965) and American Oliver Hardy (1892-1957) were a comedy duo act during the early classical Hollywood era of American cinema. They started their careers as a duo in the silent film era and later successfully transitioned to talkies, and for the better part of three decades ranging from the late 1920s to the mid-1950s, they were internationally famous for their slapstick comedy, with Laurel playing the skinny, clumsy, childlike friend to Hardys rotund and pompous bully. (In Hebrew they were known as Hashamen vHarazeh the fat one and the thin one.) Laurel and Hardy got their start in film working with a variety of Jewish slapstick comedians and, prior to emerging as a team, both had well-established movie careers; Laurel had acted in over 50 films and he was also a writer (see discussion below on his noteworthy Jewish scripts), while Hardy appeared in more than 250 productions

In rejecting what he called the lachrymose account of Jewish history, Baron instead insisted that, both in medieval Europe and modern America, our history was more fortunate than Baron and most Jewish historians believed. In this slim and eloquent work not yet translated into English and published in France as Les Larmes dhistoire: De Kichinev Pittsburg Birnbaum takes up this issue by tracing the rise of antisemitism in the United States.
