Laurel and Hardy Books

Over the past 40 years there have been many books written about Laurel and Hardy.

From autobiography's to the British tours , their films , solo careers before the partnership, every part of their life has been scrutinised. The Magic Behind the Movies by Randy Skretvedt has every little detail about each film , whilst AJ Marriott 's book about the British Tours even tells you what hotel they stayed at and who else was on the bill when they were appearing at the theatre .

Many of the books are long out of print , although from time to time earlier copies of books appear on internet auction sites .Below is a list of books and a scan of the cover, some books appear more than once if they have a differnt front cover.
