'Stan" on DVD - judgefoozle - 11-01-2019

The BBC drama Stan, a fictionalised account of a visit to the ailing Babe Hardy by Stan Laurel, is released on DVD this week.
Although it's a brilliantly-performed and touching account of an imagined incident, it's really a long-drawn-out single joke that's well worth the full 1-hour duration. It's interspersed with flashbacks to times much earlier in their lives, during their movie careers, with younger actors, and was quite rightly highly acclaimed when first shown on British television some years ago.
A very timely release, with the new movie Stan and Ollie being publicised, and for the modest price, a "must" for anyone interested in Laurel and Hardy.
