Stan teamed up with Oliver Hardy to form one of the most successful movie partnerships in history. Stan and Ollie, and their famous dog "Laughing Gravy", are commemorated in Ulverston by a bronze statue by Graham Ibbeson, funded by fans from across the world, and unveiled by Ken Dodd in 2009. The statue stands in County Square, immediately below the Coronation Hall balcony where Stan and Ollie appeared in front of a huge crowd in 1947. The Laurel and Hardy Museum in the ground floor of the Roxy Cinema building is a magnet for fans, and is closely associated with the organisation of the annual festival "Another Fine Fest". There is also a "Stan Laurel" pub, close to Argyll Street, and in Market Street a florists named "Floral and Hardy".
