Stan and Ollie: The Double Life of Laurel and Hardy
Stan and Ollie: The Double Life of Laurel and Hardy
by Simon Louvish
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars The best biography of the duo so far, 30 Nov. 2001
Louvish can be an irritating and somewhat self-congratulatory writer at times,but there's no doubting his enthusiasm for his subject(s),and he's produced a thorough and vivid account of the most easy-to-admire double-act in movie history.Not without its faults,but still an engrossing read.

1.0 out of 5 stars A clumsy lowbrow effort, 30 Nov. 2001
If it took two writers to produce work of this feeble standard then I hate to think what one on his own could come up with.As a biography this is a cheap cut-and-paste job,garnished with the odd irrelevant quote from some acquaintance of one or the other of the authors.The research is slapdash,the reference section is non-existent and even the bibliography contains simple errors.Avoid.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive biography of the great Grant, 30 Nov. 2001
Wow!This is the work of a proper writer,if you know what I mean,and this is as informative,authoritative,witty and wise account of the man,the actor and the star that we are likely to see.David Thomson,the great movie critic,rates this book as by a long,long way the definitive biography,and I certainly cannot fault it.A magnificent contribution to our understanding of Mr Grant in particular and of movie stars and actors in general.
