About the Author:

John McCabe is an established writer on theatre and cinema in America and a personal friend of Stan Laurel's widow, Ida. He remains eternally grateful to his lifelong friend, John Carroll, who dragged him, as a doubting child, to see his first Laurel and Hardy film.

Review:

'Remarkable ... positively miraculous... apart from the rather greedy wish for more of everything, it is difficult to see how this book could be improved upon.'
