    Description

    Henry Calvin's Mustache from His "Laurel and Hardy" Appearance with Dick Van Dyke (1963). One of the best-remembered episodes of The Dick Van Dyke Show was the March 6, 1963 episode "The Sam Pomerantz Scandals," in which Van Dyke and Henry Calvin did a remarkable (and heartfelt) impersonation of Laurel and Hardy. (Stan Laurel himself tuned in that night and enjoyed it.) This lot includes Calvin's Oliver Hardy mustache, housed, for whatever reason, in a Howard Johnson's Motor Lodge envelope. The mustache is in its original two pieces, well-preserved, and comes with an 8" x 10" still (in Excellent condition) showing Dick and Henry as Stan and Ollie. A fascinating lot from an unforgettable night of classic television -- and a true curio related to the legend of Laurel and Hardy. From the Henry Calvin Collection.
