During the War....

laurel and hardy

Just before making the Fox movie 'A Haunting We Will Go' (released in 1942) laurel and Hardy joined several other stars including Ray Bolger on the 'Flying Showboat Tour'. The tour departed on November 2nd 1941 with the troupe flying aboard three B-I8s. During their two-week tour they visited defence bases in Antigna, St.Lucia, Trinidad and British Guyana.

We are pleased to present some exclusive never printed before photographs. We obtained them from an antique's dealer in the USA. An U.S. Airman took these when they visited Borinquen Field, Puerto Rico in November 1941. The weather during the tour was very hot, just look at the expression on Ollies face!
