This is a gold mine of information, much of which is not going to be found elsewhere easily, if at all. Glenn Mitchell has done a thorough job of researching his subjects, and it shows. Clearly, he enjoys The Boys as well, since a noticeable amount of wit and humor add to the fun of reading the book. Incidentally, it's virtually im possible ("I have just two words...") to read the book in sequence; the cross references just go on and on. All in all, it's a most worthy companion to Randy Skretvedt's "Laurel and Hardy: the Magic Behind the Movies".

I was very disappointed with this edition of the book. I already have the 1996 reissue which is a large size soft back book packed with lots of info and photographs in 302 pages. When I saw this 2008 edition listed as 'updated' with 492 pages I sent off for it with some anticipation. Unfortunately if I had checked the specifications closely I would have seen that this is a paperback size edition with many less photographs, and upon delivery found to have only 336 pages. As far as I can see there is the same amount of information as the earlier editions, with DVD references added, so I guess you pays your money and makes your choice.

Several hundred pages of A-Z information on the boys. I don't think any stone has been left unturned. This book is as up to date as it could possibly be (1/2000). If you have any questions unanswered about Stan and Ollie then this book is for you. Excellent.

I didn't realize that this was an A-Z style book - I would have much preferred a film-by-film style.

Still a good read, but finding out everything about a particular film,
can sometimes mean flipping back and forth through the book.

This Is Excellent. it tells you everything from Nudity, Zoos comments and Ratings of every film the Families of the boys and much much more.

There are some pictures from The Bullfuighters, Dancing Masters and Nothing but trouble

If youve read bad reviews then ignore them - there a matter of taste rather than about it.

Good value for money, bought as a Xmas present for my father, who is thoroughly enjoying reading about his comic idols.
