This fabulous oversized poster was issued in France for a Laurel and Hardy film called Les Aventures de Laurel et Hardy. Released in 1946 comedy compilation of Laurel and Hardy shorts made from 1929 and 1930. 

It stars Laurel and Hardy, a comedy double act popular during the early Classical Hollywood era of American cinema. The team was composed of thin Englishman Stan Laurel (1890–1965) and heavyset American Oliver Hardy (1892–1957). They became well known during the late 1920s through the mid-1940s for their slapstick comedy, with Laurel playing the clumsy and childlike friend of the pompous Hardy.

This poster has recently come back from the linen backer and looks stupendous. It's original fold lines are still visible (we think that adds to its charm), but it is in excellent condition and will frame up beautifully.  With its beautiful colors and fantastic mid-century modern style, it is a spectacular tribute to poster art, film, and the staying power of two classic comedians. We love it and just acquired it from France!
