  • An original document signed by Oliver Hardy, one half of seminal double act Laurel & Hardy

Oliver Hardy was an American comedian and actor, most famous for being one half of the popular comedy duo Laurel & Hardy. He's a central figure in the highly collectable Hollywood silent era. Any item from Oliver Hardy is coveted by collectors.

Hardy has autographed this 28 page softbound copy of California Supreme Court Case #13874 in black ink on the top right hand corner of the front cover.

The document, which features some light toning and handling wear, covers Hardy's ex-wife's follow-up suit for more alimony following their 1937 divorce. Within the document, Myrtle Lee Hardy claims that Oliver had fallen short on the yearly payments that had been agreed upon in the original divorce case.

The judge concluded that Myrtle was not liable for any additional alimony. Just a few years later, Hardy fell in love with script girl Virginia Lucille Jones. They remained happily married until his death in 1956.

An excellent document providing an insight into the private life of one of America's best loved comedians.
