Format: Paperback
As to Maltin writing his material, the author was all of 19 when he assembled this book: I don't think his allowance covered ghost writers. This was the first film book I ever purchased and I still refer to it now and then, a solid effort filling a hole in the literature.

Format: Paperback
For years.The comedy teams of the movies have rarely been acknowledge.Only L&H and "The Marx Brothers"have received any respect from film historians and writers.Until now.Leonard Maltin's"Movie Comedy Teams"finally gives respect to Abbott & Costello,"The Three Stooges",Wheeler & Woolsey,Clark And McCollogh,The Ritz Brothers,Thelma Todd/Zasu Pitts/Patsy Kelly etc.And the foremention Mr.Laurel/Mr.Hardy and The Marxes'.Although the book does not provide alot of accurate biographical details about the teams.It does give an indepth look into their work and their influences on the public and other performers and comedy craftspersons.It also features filmographies and photos of the performers at work.Plus a heartwarming tribute to these performers by Mr.Billy Gilbert.Who had been a well known and beloved foil for L&H,Wheeler and Woolsey,Clark And McCollough etc.Lenny Maltin's book is the first real attemp to gives these talented,creative but neglected clowns and comics their due.And we're all the better for it.Bravo Lenny! Kevin S.Butler.
