Rare Laurel & Hardy Scripts Uncovered
New book shares 20 short subject screenplays from the 1930s comedy team
The latest book by L&H expert Randy Skretvedt features 20 complete, original screenplays for their short subjects. They include a treasure trove of unused but hilarious comedy routines. Among them is the entire script for a proposed 1926 comedy, never filmed, which would have been the comedians' first film as a team.
The scripts are illustrated with 150 rare photos; many of them vividly depict the process of making the films. Introductions for each entry detail the fascinating differences between the scripts and the movies made from them. Full cast and credit information is also included.
