R.I.P., Oliver Hardy

It was a sad date for movie comedy when Oliver Hardy passed away on this day in 1957. A quack doctor had put him on a diet of nothing but beets. He lost so much weight so fast that his body couldn’t keep up, and he had a series of strokes that led to his death. This photo is one of the last pics of L&H taken together.
