One Night: Stan
This article is from 2006.
Miles Gallant’s insightful portrayal of Stan Laurel is both tender and heartfelt. In his backstage dressing room he forlornly reminisces over his career and his diminishing time with ‘babe’. The story moves from humble beginnings on his father’s sketch show, through the touring days, to Hollywood films. Limited crowd appeal but a must see for enthusiasts. (Greer Ogston)
