Best early film comedy



Not all our straw-polls are of paramount importance.  

Stan Laurel was originally Charlie Chaplin's understudy and Laurel and Hardy were said to have capitalized on many of Chaplin's slapstick routines in their own films.

So we asked our visitors, who do you prefer,  Laurel and Hardy, or Charlie Chaplin?  

A somewhat surprising result, considering Chaplin has historically always polled the greater of the vintage acts, but Laurel and Hardy scored 38 votes, and Chaplin 30.
