"LAUREL AND HARDY
FROM THE FORTIES FORWARD"
by Scott MacGillivray
Some might think that "Magic Behind the Movies" or "The L&H Encyclopedia." might be their bible on the boys later films. For me this new book is my 'bible'. A lot has been written on the boys solo work and the teamwork of the 20s & 30s, but this is the first book which has concentrated on the 1940s onwards. It is thoroughly researched with quotes and interviews from Lois Laurel and the boys friends and co-stars from this period.
Each chapter is devoted to a specific film or incident. Therefore there are chapters on GREAT GUNS (12pp), A HAUNTING WE WILL GO (10 pp), AIR RAID WARDENS (10pp), TREE IN A TEST TUBE (4pp), JITTERBUGS (14pp), DANCING MASTERS (14pp), The Studio System (6pp), BIG NOISE (12pp), NOTHING BUT TROUBLE (8pp), BULLFIGHTERS (12pp), Theatrical Reissues (looks at the Roach reissues) (12pp), Leaving Hollywood (looks at un-filmed projects & the UK tours) (8pp), ATOLL K (12pp), The 1950s (12pp), Robert Youngson (24pp). The book is hardcover consisting of 224pp, with index and about 40pp of excellent photos. The books is American and published by Vestal Press.
