Oliver Hardy grew up in my home town of Milledgeville, Georgia. How about that? Click to enlarge, if you can. His mom was a hotel manager in 1903, which I find impressive. And Oliver, known then as Norwell Hardy, took a job as a projectionist at the local movie theater, where he "resolved to become an actor in motion pictures."
Three photos that have been languishing on my desktop. Happy Friday, y'all!
