  1. I’m looking forward to seeing Stan and Ollie – I was brought up on their slapstick comedy as a youngster and always try to catch them when they’re on TV now. If you’re ever in this neck of the woods, check out their museum in Ulverston – Stan was born in the town.

    • Yeah, it’s a lovely movie actually, all about a friendship lasting over many years. Sad and sweet!

      I didn’t even know Stan was English until the movie! I’m sure the museum is a gem…
