Another Fine Mess

Julie Hill and 90 year old Stanley Wilson got in touch with me about recreating the characters of Stan laurel and Oliver Hardy for the Hullywood Icons project. We created some Stan and Ollie moments at the Street Life Museum:Hull Museums in the old town of Hull. At 90 Stan is one of the oldest Hullywood Icons so far. Interestingly Hull has the distinction of being the very last piece of British soil that Laurel and Hardy trod, as they sailed from there in 1954. They also performed at Hull New Theatre, drank at Olde English Gent and stayed at Royal Station Hotel on 07/07/1947.
