The Sad True Story Of Oliver Hardy – Secrets You Didn’t Know About Babe Hardy.
The mini true story of Oliver Hardy. As a child, Hardy was sometimes difficult. He was sent to Georgia Military College in Milledgeville as a youngster. In 1905, when he was 13, he was sent to Young Harris College in north Georgia for the fall semester. He had little interest in formal education, although he acquired an early interest in music and theater. He joined a theatrical group and later ran away from a boarding school near Atlanta to sing with the group. His mother recognized his talent for singing and sent him to Atlanta to study music and voice with singing teacher Adolf Dahm-Petersen. He skipped some of his lessons to sing in the Alcazar Theater for $3.50 a week. As a teenager, Hardy began styling himself "Oliver Norvell Hardy", adding the first name "Oliver" as a tribute to his father. Laurel and Hardy made two live television appearances: in 1953 on a live broadcast of the BBC show Face the Music, and in December 1954 on NBC’s This Is Your Life.
