Laurel also gives his frank opinion about the comedian Jimmy Durante, ''...I missed seeing the Ed Sullivan show last Sunday, frankly am a little tired of Durante - same old routine over & over again is a bit boring - with all due respects, I think its time he retired gracefully - whats he trying to prove?...'' Laurel also talks about a Laurel & Hardy film, ''...Re Jimmy Finlayson, he appeared in many films with us - I recall the one you mention, I think that was titled 'From Soup to Nuts' (I served the salad 'Undressed'.)...'' and finally, Laurel tells his friend to ''forget the celeb nonsense'', ''...Note Kay [Brown's wife] will be out here around next January, we shall enjoy the pleasure of meeting her - please tell her not to worry we are just ordinary normal people - no Wall-to-Wall Mink business here - just forget the celeb nonsense - we are frank & ernest [sic] people - 'HELLO FRANK * HELLO ERNEST'!!!!!!...[signed] Stan Laurel''. Letter on two pages of one sheet measures 7.25'' x 10.5''. Folds, else near fine. With original mailing envelope.
