Summary
  • "John Connolly recreates the golden age of Hollywood for an intensely compassionate study of the tension among the commercial demands, artistic integrity, and the human frailties behind even the greatest of artists"--
  • Awed like everyone else by Chaplin's genius (and ambition and cruelty), Stan Laurel despaired of ever finding his own path to success or happiness. When impresario Hal Roach to put him and Oliver Hardy together on screen, the partnership bloomed into a professional and personal relationship of lifelong depth. Laurel became one of the greatest screen comedians the world has ever known. He knew both adoration and humiliation; loved, and was loved; never sought to cause pain to anyone else, yet left a trail of affairs and broken marriages in his wake. And his life was ultimately defined by one relationship that only death could sever. -- adapted from jacket
