SIR - The new movie Stan and Ollie is highly enjoyable, with both Steve Coogan and John C Reilly first rate in these two respective roles. In the film, the duo come over to the UK in the 1950s for a tour, in the twilight of their careers. As another letter writer (and last week's T&A feature) pointed out, the Alhambra in Bradford was on their schedule.

I was particularly interested to watch the scene where they appeared at the famous (or should that be 'infamous') Glasgow Empire. Many well known comics have told stories of how they 'died' in front of a mercilessly, unforgiving audience here. Laurel and Hardy however, according to this film, not only 'survived' but were given a great reception - the second date of the tour.
