Description:

First Edition. Signed by A.J. Marriot on the title page. Quarto. Bound in full cloth and in dust jacket. 316 pages. As new. At the end of World War II, Laurel & Hardy were dissatisfied with the films they had been making at 20th Century - Fox, so in the later forties and 1950s they embarked on a series of live appearance tours of the British Isles playing comedy sketches in variety theaters. Documented for the first time in this truly amazing volume, the author has seemingly interviewed every surviving witness who interacted with the beloved comedy team, plundered newspaper archives, uncovered numerous unknown documents, and reproduced dozens of excellent photographs. Remarkably, he has produced a warm and affectionate volume that gives great insight into the lives and comedy of Laurel & Hardy. Handsomely produced, this book receives our firmÕs highest endorsement and is essential for any admirer of these two gentle men. Bookseller Inventory # 8085J
