Laurel & Hardy: Original Motion Picture Soundtracks (CD)
Laurel and Hardy were a comedy duo act during the early Classical Hollywood era of American cinema. The team was composed of Englishman Stan Laurel (1890-1965) and American Oliver Hardy (1892-1957). They became well known during the late 1920s to the mid-1940s for their slapstick comedy, with Laurel playing the clumsy and childlike friend of the pompous bully Hardy. The duo's signature tune is known variously as The Cuckoo Song, Ku-Ku, or The Dance of the Cuckoos. It was played over the opening credits of their films and has become as emblematic of the duo as their bowler hats.
