Stan Laurel typed letter signed, writing to a fan on 8 October 1962 regarding several of the Laurel & Hardy films, including ''Atoll K'' during which Laurel was mostly confined to a hospital in France. Dated 8 October 1962 upon Oceana stationery, where he lived, letter reads in part, ''...Vic McLaghlen...was also a boxer, understand he once opposed the late Jack Johnson, the colored heavyweight champion & lasted a few rounds too...The 'Atoll K' film was made on the French Riviera near Cannes, but due to my illness in hospital, the film was made at a studio in Paris, most of the picture was done at the Studio. Hardy was'nt Mad - just disgusted with the whole affair, it was really a shocking experience. The film was released in the States as 'Utopia', in England was titled 'Robinson Crusoeland' - it would'nt have made any difference what they called it, it would still stink.!...'' Laurel then answers specific questions regarding several of their films and Hardy's personality, in part, ''...Yes, I had a lot to do with the making of 'Blockheads', had a very competent gag men crew too - I suggested the idea of staying in the trench for 20 years after the armistice - everybody of course helped on the idea...Yes, Hardy was a very powerful Man & very quick tempered - by no means a 'Pushover' for anybody when he really got mad.!...I think we appeared at the San Francisco World's Fair sometime in 1938-9, we tried out a new vaudeville sketch there 'Getting a Driver's License', turned out very successful, we toured with it both in the U.S. & Abroad...[signed] Stan Laurel''. Two page letter measures 5.5'' x 8.5''. Folds, otherwise near fine. With original mailing envelope.
