Sunday Funnies

Silly old video of Laurel & Hardy; some of the expressions on Stan Laurel's face are precious--Ben Turpin, an old silent film comedian, plays the Justice of the Peace in this scene; his crossed eyes were a real condition, a result of an accident he had when he was a young man, and they became his trademark. I don't know how he could see that way, but I read that he was always afraid they'd become uncrossed, thus depriving him of his career. Interesting--I thought he did that on purpose when he acted and often wondered how he could keep his eyes crossed for so long when he was acting!

I recently watched TCM's series on Laurel And Hardy. I remember that guy. I thought too that the guy crossed his eye. Interesting fact.
