Product Description

Publisher: Arrow

Author: Paul Merton

Bringing a comedian’s insight to bear on the art of making people laugh, Paul Merton traces the evolution of silent comedy from its earliest pioneering days, through the 1900s, and considers the works of the genre’s greatest exponents — Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy and Harold Lloyd. This richly illustrated history is destined to be a classic. (pb)
