Just who is the Top of the Bill? Stan Laurel or Oliver Hardy?
That's the dilemma confronting the performer in this strange and bizarre close-up routine.
Two name plates, one for Stan and one for Ollie shrink and elongate as each is given pride of place at the Top of the Bill. How? Simple, they are short on one side and long on the other! Or so claims the performer.
Is it an optical illusion? It seems so until the finale in which the spectator is left with two name plates of completely different sizes!
