Unfortunately for collectors and enthusiasts, this book had a limited printing of 1000 copies. It is considered to be the most sought-after movie biography and will cost you hundreds (if not thousands) for an original. Fortunately for me and others, Gorcey's son recently rereleased the book (again with a limited printing of 1000 copies) with a forward and some notes. Now those of you who always wanted to read the book but never had access to one can find this gem.
Nothing in this book is properly covered; at 130 pages including notes it hardly has time to go into detail about anything. However, what it lacks in depth it more than makes up for in humor. Gorcey is a surprisingly good writer and a very funny man. His pranks are legendary in Hollywood history and that same mischievious spirit prevails in his writing. Dead End Yells, Wedding Bells, Cockle Shells and Dizzy Spells is a book best supplemented with Leo Gorcey Jr.'s book Me and the Dead End Kid. The extra background information will make this books' writing all the more alive in context.
