    TALKING TO LOIS LAUREL - HAWES - Daughter and only child of Stan Laurel.

    Source: Home Cinema Choice



    Are you surprised at the continuing interest that exists in Stan and Ollie's work?
    Not really, because of all the hard work and love and devotion that they put into the films to make them so right. The interest does overwhelm me but doesn't surprise me.

    Which film has the fondest memories for you?
    It is hard to nail down, but I do enjoy Swiss Miss. I know that my father's favourite, from beginning to end was Way Out West because he loved the whole Western thing.

    Is there any work that is still unseen?
    The 1927 film Hats Off has not been located and I hope that will resurface one day. There was another film, Rogue Song, with Lawrence Tibbit that I saw once when I was four but I don't remember.

    Was your father always joking with you?
    He was always full of fun, but he wasn't an all-the-time comedian. He wrote so much that you could tell when his mind was working. He was a very good father and took me on set a lot as we lived not far from Beverley Hills.

    Have you visited Great Britain often?
    I was going to come for a year in London with my father when he was coming over to do pantomime and film. We were all packed and ready to go, but it was 1939 and war broke out. In 1979, I made a pilgrimage to Ulverston where my father was born and then in 1980 I went to a convention at Leeds Castle held by the fan club the Sons of the Desert. I lived in the UK from 1981 when I married the comedy writer Tony Hawes, who worked for the BBC. We lived in Knightsbridge and Beaufort Gardens, and then in 1983 we commuted from the US. I came back to be closer to my mother and to my grandchildren.

    Do you still watch the movies?
    Yes, and the UK is very lucky to have them remastered. We don't have them in America and they are just gorgeous. I was sent 20 recently and they are just great. They are in their entirety and the companies are to be commended for what they have done.

Lucy confirms that Lois will be 80 on December 2007 and the interview took place sometime in 2000 I believe so Lois would have been about 73 at the time of the interview.

I think she would have been in her late 50's early 60's when that picture was taken
