    Stan Laurel Handwritten Letter. A three-page letter on lined paper, dated November 17, 1930, handwritten and signed by Laurel in black ink. In it, the screen comedian discusses production on Laurel and Hardy's first full-length feature film, Pardon Us. It reads in part: "...have been awfully busy making the foreign language versions of our first full length picture. The title has been changed from 'The Rap' to 'Their First Mistake'. ... We are making it in five languages English, Spanish, French, German & Italian & are speaking them all." The letter is accompanied by a b&w 8" x 10" photo of Laurel inscribed, dated 1927, and signed by him in blue ink. The letter is in Very Fine condition with mailing creases and mild toning and wear, and the photo is Fine with some scuffing, toning, and wear, little of which affects the autograph. Accompanied by James Spence Authentication auction LOA.
