LAUREL & HARDY
(1928-1935)


Trying to decypher the complete chronology of Laurel and Hardy films is often a minefield of trying to please the L&H purists and stating the actual facts. For some fans the mere fact that both actors appear in the same film somehow makes that film "a Laurel and Hardy film" - which it obviously isn't.
Officially the first film to be released as part of the LAUREL AND HARDY series was Should Married Men Go Home? in September 1928. This was after the 18 films they had already made together between 1927-1928 which were all released under Hal Roach's ALL STAR banner (and this isn't including a few silent shorts they appeared in for Charley Chase, Glenn Tryon and Max Davidson).
Hopefully this list will also answer the often discussed and disputed figure of that question: how many films did Laurel & Hardy appear in together? The answer is: 121. Some fans will argue "we don't include this one" or "we do include that one" but the total number is 121. And that is a FACT. Also, you have to take into account that all of the foreign-language films were released with new footage shot exclusively for that version so this makes them all "new" films. Finally, if you include the promotional "The Tree In A Test Tube" then you also have to include "Galaxy Of Stars". You see what I mean about how confusing this can get? 121.
