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 put him and Oliver Hardy, affectionately known as Babe, 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. He never sought to cause pain to anyone else, yet left a trail of affairs and broken marriages in his wake. But his life was ultimately defined by one relationship of tenderness and devotion that only death could sever: his love for Babe.--
Summary
A literary Golden Age Hollywood portrait based on the remarkable life of Stan Laurel traces the rise of a Chaplin-inspired comedian whose genius and talent blossoms through his creative and personal relationship with partner Oliver Hardy, at whose side he endures fame, betrayal and heartache
