Arthur Stanley Jefferson Wiki Biography

Arthur Stanley Jefferson was born on 16 June 1890, in Ulverston, Lancashire, England, and was an actor, film director and writer, best known for being part of the comedy duo Laurel and Hardy. Alongside Oliver Hardy, he appeared in 107 short films, cameo roles, and feature films; all of his efforts helped put his net worth to where it was, prior to his passing in 1965.

How rich was Stan Laurel? As of mid-2017, sources inform us of a net worth that was at $50,000, mostly earned through success in acting and comedy. Laurel and Hardy are considered among the best double comedy acts to have ever been in the industry. All of these achievements ensured the position of his wealth.

Stan Laurel Net Worth $50,000

Stan grew up in a household that was inclined to acting thanks to his parents who were both active in theatre. He attended King James I Grammar School, King’s School, and later Rutherglen Academy. At the age of 16, he would be part of his first professional performance on stage, and then continued to work on his craft, creating his standard comic devices, his bowler hat included. In 1910, Stan joined Fred Karno’s troupe of actors, and became friends with Charlie Chaplin; the two arrived in the United States at the same time and toured the country. In 1918, he first worked with Oliver Hardy in the silent film “The Lucky Dog”, before the two started partnering. Stan then started doing two reel comedies, including “Nuts in May” and “Mud and Sand” which started increasing his net worth. He left the stage in 1924 to fully dedicate to films, and continued making two reel comedies including “Mandarin Mix-Up”, “Detained”, and “West of Hot Dog”, all contributing to his net worth.

Laurel then signed with Hal Roach studio, and started directing films. He was asked to return to acting in 1927, which is when he started sharing the screen with Oliver Hardy – they had chemistry, and the two quickly became friends. Audiences also reacted well to them which led to the creation of Laurel and Hardy. They worked on numerous short films, including “Two Tars”, “With Love and Hisses” and “Big Business”, and also transitioned to feature films starring in “Pardon Us”. They won an Academy Award for Best Short Subject in 1932’s “The Music Box”.

Stan continued to work with Hardy at Roach Studio throughout the 1930s. In 1941, they then signed with 20th Century Fox and continued to build their net worth, although their work became less popular due to the war years. They still had successful work despite the problems, then in 1947 Stan returned to England, and thanks to a successful tour there, they spent the next seven years touring in Europe and the UK. They planned more projects, but were continuously effected by illness – Hardy died in 1957, and Stan refused to return to acting after his death. In 1961, Laurel received a Lifetime Achievement Academy Award for his work in comedy.

For his personal life, it is known that Laurel married Lois Nelson in 1926 and they had two children, however, the second child died just after nine days. They divorced in 1934 and he then married Virginia Ruth Rogers, but they divorced in 1938, and he then married Vera Ivanova Shuvalova, but after two years they divorced too, and he returned to Virginia in 1941 – they remarried but five years later divorced again. Laurel then married Ida Kitaeva Raphael, and they remained married until his death. He passed away in 1965 in Santa Monica, California, after suffering a heart attack.

1Subtle substitution of the word "me" for "my", as in the line from Way Out West: "Wait a minute while I spit on me hands."
2Gaze into the camera with arms up and palms out in a "What now?" gesture.
3Completely vacant stare into the camera, accentuated by white pancake makeup.
4Wide, "hanger-in-my-mouth" smile, spiky hair sported in all of his films, and of course, the "whiny face" for which he is famous.
5Usually played a childishly innocent man who always looked up to his good friend Oliver Hardy, whether it was deserved or not. Common schticks included crying in cases of great predicaments, taking instructions literally at all times and mixing up his lines. He and Hardy often had a scene in their films where they would get into a fight with another person that consisted solely of destroying property. The duo would destroy something the opponent values while the opponent ooks on and does not resist. When they are done, the opponent does the same to them, while they refrain from resisting, and so on.

1I don't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence with Charles Chaplin.
2[on Oliver Hardy] He really is a very funny fellow, isn't he?
3People have always loved our pictures. I guess that's because they saw how much love we put into them.
4[on a comic he refused to name]: Very funny when he's not being dirty. I can't stand him.
5[on Charles Chaplin]: Just the greatest.
6[on the death of Oliver Hardy] Ben Shipman called me the day before and told me Babe had taken a turn for the worse and the end was expected any hours, even knowing this, the final news came as a shock to me. However, I think it was a blessing - poor fellow must have been really suffering (they discovered recently he had a bad cancer condition), so under the circumstances there was no hope of his ever recovering. What a tragic end to such a wonderful career.
7[on Dick Van Dyke] Dick is a very clever comic, very talented, he does resemble me facially but thats about all, firstly, he is much taller and his mannerisms are entirely his own style. I enjoyed very much meeting him, a very interesting chap.
8What business do we have telling people who to vote for? They probably know more about it than we do.
9[about the eight films he and Oliver Hardy made at 20th Century-Fox in the 1940s] We had no say on those films, and it sure looked it.
10Crazy humor was always my type of humor, but it's the quiet kind of craziness I like. The rough type of nut humor like The Marx Brothers I could never go for.
11[on Oliver Hardy's death] The world has lost a comic genius. I've lost my best friend.
12A friend once asked me what comedy was. That floored me. What is comedy? I don't know. Does anybody? Can you define it? All I know is that I learned how to get laughs, and that's all I know about it. You have to learn what people will laugh at, then proceed accordingly.
13If any of you cry at my funeral, I'll never speak to you again!
1David Jason is one of his, along with Oliver Hardy's biggest fans. When Jason put on weight after playing Pop Larkin in The Darling Buds of May (1991), he couldn't fit into a dinner jacket for the BAFTA Awards; he claimed he looked like Hardy wearing something belonging to Laurel.
2In Spain, Stan and Ollie were known as El Gordo y El Flaco.
3In Holland, Stan and Ollie were known as Dikke und Dunne.
4In Germany, Stan and Ollie were known as Dick und Doof.
5He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 7021 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on February 8, 1960.
6The character Mickey in Maurice Sendak's book "Mickey in the Night Kitchen" is a caricature of Stan Laurel, while the bakers are caricatures of Oliver Hardy.
7Stan's famous hairstyle was created by accident. He and Babe had shaved their heads to play convicts in The Second 100 Years (1927), and it grew back very unevenly and refused to stay down. Others on the Roach lot laughed, so Stan began to cultivate the new look. Offscreen, he combed it straight back, as did Oliver Hardy.
8Stan removed the heels from his shoes while filming. It helped him accent his already humorous walk.
9Because the Roach studio was smaller than the majors, the indoor sets were relatively close to each other, and the actors often visited other sets between takes. Matthew "Stymie" Beard picked up Stan's Irish children's derby and wore it whenever Stan put it down. Stan eventually gave Stymie a hat, which became Stymie's trademark as much as it was Stan's.
10Laurel insisted that the quote attributed to him, "You know my hobbies; I married them all." was actually dreamed up by the publicity department.
11He was a heavy smoker until he suddenly gave up when he was about seventy.
12He was a staunch Democrat.
13A comedian until the very last, Stan Laurel, just minutes away from death on February 23, 1965, told his nurse he would not mind going skiing right at that very moment. Somewhat taken aback, the nurse replied that she was not aware that he was a skier. "I'm not," said Stan, "I'd rather be doing that than have all these needles stuck into me!" A few minutes later, the nurse looked in on him again and found that Stan had quietly passed away.
14Although Stan is recorded as being born in Ulverston Cumbria, he never knew it. He was actually born in Ulverston Lancashire. Ulverston became part of Cumbria under the "Local Government Act 1972" and became part of Cumbria two years later in 1974; nine years after Stan died.
15Suffered a stroke in June 1955.
16His partner Oliver Hardy was an inveterate golfer, often setting up his own little putting green on the set so he could practice between takes. Laurel once joked to a reporter interviewing him that golf was Hardy's only "bad habit". When the reporter asked if he had any bad habits, Laurel--who had been married and divorced five times--replied, "Yes, and I married them.".
17In his later years, he was arguably the most approachable of all movie stars, keeping his phone number in the phone book, welcoming all sorts of visitors, and responding to his fan mail personally.
18While rarely credited as a writer or director, he was the driving creative force behind the team of he and Oliver Hardy--whenever Hardy was asked a question about a gag, story idea, plotline, etc., he always pointed to Laurel and said, "Ask Stan." Laurel often worked well into the night, writing and editing their films.
19Stan was greatly admired by Peter Sellers. Sellers claimed that the "Laurel" character was his inspiration when he created the "gardener" character in Being There (1979).
20Is portrayed by Matthew Cottle in Chaplin (1992).
21He was greatly admired by Jerry Lewis. When Lewis had his own production company in the early 1960s, he repeatedly tried to hire Stan for his creative team. Stan refused, despite the impressive salary. According to Lewis, he would send scripts to Stan who would read them and write suggestions in the margins.
22In his later years, he was a close friends with Dick Van Dyke. Dick delivered the eulogy at Stan's funeral.
23Is portrayed by Jim Plunkett in Harlow (1965).
24An extra named John Wood from the film Babes in Toyland (1934) sued him and his stunt double, Ham Kinsey, claiming back injuries after Laurel and Kinsey threw him in the ducking pond on the set. The lawsuit specified $40,500 in damages, but was settled out-of-court.
25Fell off a platform and tore ligaments in his right leg during the filming of Babes in Toyland (1934).
26He and Oliver Hardy have been and continue to be very popular in Germany under the name of "Dick und Doof" (Fatty and Stupid).
27The death of his partner Oliver Hardy left him a broken man, so much so that he fell into a deep depression and swore never to do comedy again. He didn't. In the eight years between Hardy's death and his own, he repeatedly turned down offers to do public appearances.
28He was voted, along with comedy partner Oliver Hardy, the 45th Greatest Movie Star of all time by Entertainment Weekly.
29His and Oliver Hardy's films had and still have great success in Italy where they are known as "Stanlio e Ollio".
30Had said that out of all the impersonations done of him, he liked actor Dick Van Dyke's the best. Van Dyke even got to perform that impersonation on one of the episodes of The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961) and after it premiered, he called Laurel to ask his opinion. Laurel said he liked everything but one detail, the hat wasn't right. Van Dyke said he found Laurel's number in a Santa Monica, California, phone book.
31At the time of Oliver Hardy's death in 1957, Stan was too ill to attend his late partner's funeral.
32He and Mae Laurel lived as a common-law couple, as Mae was legally married to someone in her native Australia when she met Stan in 1918. They parted in 1925 by mutual consent and Mae returned to Australia.
33Appears on sleeve of The Beatles' album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band".
34Subject on one of five 29¢ US commemorative postage stamps celebrating famous comedians, issued in booklet form 29 August 1991. He is shown with his partner Oliver Hardy. The stamp designs were drawn by caricaturist Al Hirschfeld. The other comedians honored in the set are Edgar Bergen (with alter ego Charlie McCarthy); Jack Benny; Fanny Brice; and Bud Abbott and Lou Costello.
35Had always been a huge fan of westerns, and after he became a success, his company, Stan Laurel Productions, financed a series of low-budget musical westerns starring singing cowboy Fred Scott. The films were made for and released by the independent Spectrum Pictures rather than Hal Roach Studios, which made Laurel's and Oliver Hardy's films, or MGM, which released them. The Scott westerns seldom, if ever, made any money, but Laurel's enthusiasm for them never waned until his accountants showed him that they were getting to be a major drain on his finances, at which time he reluctantly dropped his participation.
36Turned down a cameo role in Stanley Kramer's gigantic farce It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World (1963).
37Suffered a nervous breakdown on the death of his longtime film partner and friend, Oliver Hardy, and according to his friends, never fully recovered.
38Interred at Forest Lawn (Hollywood Hills), Los Angeles, California, USA.
39He always thought that his "whining face" was humiliating, but the producers forced him to do it in most of his movies since the public loved it.
40Laurel first appeared with his future partner, Oliver Hardy, in The Lucky Dog (1921), which was filmed in 1919, but not released until 1921.
41Had two children with his first wife, Lois: a daughter, Lois Laurel; and a son, Stanley Robert (born May 7, 1930; died May 16, 1930), who was born two months prematurely and died nine days later.
42His light blue eyes almost ended his movie career before it began. Until the early 1920s, filmmakers used black-and-white Orthochromatic film stock, which was "blue blind". Hal Roach cameraman George Stevens (the same George Stevens who would later become an acclaimed producer/director) knew of panchromatic film and was able to get a supply of it from Chicago. This new film was sensitive to blue and recorded Laurel's pale blue eyes in a more natural way. Stevens became Laurel's cameraman on his short films at Roach. When Laurel teamed with Oliver Hardy, the team made Stevens their cameraman of choice.
