Goodbye, Mr. Dreamfinder
And no one did a better Oliver Hardy! Throughout his career he would often don the bowler hat whenever an opportunity arose - and with his comedy partner Jim MacGeorge as Stan Laurel he was absolutely hilarious! Imagine my shock while viewing a music video of Harry Nilsson at a Beatlefest convention some years back - watching Nilsson dribble a basketball in his driveway, while suddenly (for no apparent reason) he passes Chuck McCann (as Oliver Hardy) standing in the bushes! He does that thing with his tie - seemingly getting his tie caught up in his fingers - which quickly turned his cheery look into exasperation! No one nearby knew why I was laughing so hard - but it didn't matter - once again I had been McCann-attacked!
Anyway - these are some clips I put up on YouTube some time back - some extremely rare video clips I purchased a long time ago and one day I just decided to share it with the masses - because it deserved to be shared...
Enjoy the clips! Share 'em! Spread the laughter! - - and THANK YOU, Chuck!!!
