Arguably the greatest comedy duo in show business history, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy delighted filmgoers and theatregoers for over thirty years. The public not only found Laurel's serene simpleton and Hardy's pompous buffoon hilarious, but they also thought of them as friends. Laurel and Hardy may have been nitwits, but they were loveable nitwits. Another Nice Mess: The Laurel and Hardy Story explores the lives and careers of Laurel and Hardy. The book examines how the comedians teamed up and it explains why, nearly half a century after their deaths, their films continue to enchant people all over the world.
The Louvish book is quite frankly overwritten, but is very seriously researched by a serious academic; this is just a fan's attempt to cash in on what was probably a childhood obsession or something. I stopped reading at page 20 or so, because it immediately became clear there was nothing new to learn that wasn't in Louvish's book already. Save your money. Seriously.
But, it's always good to read new things about 'The Boys'.
