Tomorrow’s Sunday Times Book Review runs a review of a new book–tome is probably the correct word–on Laurel and Hardy: “‘Stan and Ollie’: Two Minds Without a Single Thought.” The book sounds like a dud, but the review is worth reading even though it is slightly irritating. The review’s description of L&H comedy made me smile from beginning to end. Here’s a sample: “No matter what befalls them — and I have not mentioned the truly frightening women they often encounter — they find new and fabulous ways to retaliate. My favorite is the egg placed under the victim’s chin, after which the coup de grace is delivered by snapping the chin rapidly down onto his chest. Watching this is like listening to Mozart.” Beautiful!
