Looking for a classic comedy duo?
This statue, towering on top of the TKTS Booth, depicts iconic comedy duo Laurel and Hardy teetering off the ledge of a skyscraper in the film “Liberty” released in 1929.
Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy appeared together in over 106 films from 1921 to 1951. In their films, Laurel would often play the clumsy and childlike friend, whereas Hardy played the bombastic leader, while at the end of the day, always maintaining their endearing friendship.
Whilst they were cast mates in the film The Lucky Dog together in 1921, they did not become a team until 1927, where the duo had their debut in Putting Pants on Philip.
