What do you get when you cast an Irish American, alongside an Irish Englishman, alongside a Scotswoman with a history of playing Irish roles?

A Laurel and Hardy movie, of course! With all of the scenes spliced together by an Irish film editor.

John C. Reilly and Steve Coogan star in the January 2019 release Stan & Ollie. The film is a serious look at the struggles and successes of the famed black-and-white comedy duo. Stan Laurel was a Brit, while Oliver Hardy was an American from Georgia. But Irish American comic masterminds Leo McCarey and Hal Roach decided to put them together in movies, starting with 1927’s The Second Hundred Years, and the rest, as they say, is slapstick history. Stan & Ollie also features Scottish actress Shirley Henderson, who has appeared in Irish films such as Intermission. Directed by Jon S. Baird, Stan & Ollie was also edited by Úna Ní Dhonghaíle, who has done lots of TV editing for shows such as The Crown and Wallander. ♦
