Hal Roach Interviewed at Age 100 Here's something fun: In January 1992, seven days after his 100th birthday, famous film producer Hal Roach was interviewed on The Tonight Show by Jay Leno. Roach began making a name for himself with silent comedies in the 1920s. Among other achievements, Roach was responsible for creating the Our Gang series of short comedies and for brilliantly pairing Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy together. Roach's mind was still very sharp for a centenarian and his stories were amusing. He died ten months later.

Years later I recall Jay Leno being asked about difficult-to-handle guests--and he mentioned Hal Roach! Leno said that Roach seriously demanded to be paid up front before he would make his appearance. Leno decided to make a joke of it and pay him the moment the interview was about to begin. Everything went swimmingly from that point onward.
