Randy Skretvedt, author of Laurel and Hardy: The Magic Behind The Movies
An extraordinary reimagining of the life of one of the greatest screen comedians the world has ever known: a man who knew both adoration and humiliation; who loved, and was loved in turn; who betrayed, and was betrayed; who never sought to cause pain to others, yet left a trail of affairs and broken marriages in his wake. And whose life was ultimately defined by one relationship of such tenderness and devotion that only death could sever it: his partnership with the man he knew as Babe.
Mr Laurel & Mr Hardy: An Affectionate Biography
Of the one thousand photos here new to this printing , I would venture to say only dozens have been published before. If you love Stan and Ollie as I do you will derive great pleasure staring at rare behind-the-scenes shots, scrapbook and home-movie frames, original newspaper ads and posters, elements of working scripts, and much, much more. Want to see Oliver Hardy, Edgar Kennedy, and Hal Roach taking an impromptu swim on location with members of their crew? This is the book for you. Bear in mind that this is a limited edition; according to the publisher, once this hardcover has sold out it will not be reprinted.
John Connolly, author of the Charlie Parker series of detective novels, has never been afraid to experiment outside his first genre. This is not without difficulties. This is a book about love: love of women, love of men, love of art, love of comedy. It is harder to suspend disbelief when Stan Laurel is not an imaginary character. When those researched concrete details coalesce, a world of Dickens-like detail leaps off the page. Here Connolly writes about his struggles to free himself of Mae, his early common-law wife who stands in the way of his success.
