About this title


The early days of the American Motion Picture were fortunate in coinciding with an Age of Heroic Comedy---a time when comedy, which had traditionally labored under Aristotle's delusion that glory was reserved for the figures of tragedy, came to be used to glorify a personality at the expense of the whole world. What set Chaplin, Keaton, Fields and the Marx Brothers apart from their forebears was that they became epic characters, and it was their surroundings rather than their persons that wound up being ridiculed.---from the first chapter.
