LAUREL and HARDY books
The EUROPEAN TOURS
by A.J Marriot
LAUREL and HARDY - The European Tours is a companion to the much acclaimed BRITISH TOURS. It details not only the stage tours Laurel and Hardy played around Denmark, Sweden, France, and Belgium - from October 1947 to January 1948 - but the year the two Hollywood comedians spent in France, during the making of their 1950-51 film Atoll K. Included in this is a whistle-stop promotional visit to Italy, taking in San Remo, Genoa, Milan and Rome. In addition are details of two earlier visits to France - one by Laurel in 1927, and one by both comedians in 1932.
Along the way, readers will get to see the real human beings behind the screen characters of 'Stan and Ollie' - how they coped with the crowds who mobbed them everywhere they went; how they dealt with numerous inane questions by journalist and radio presenters; the exhaustion of a life of travel and hotel stays; and how they both worked on through serious illness to complete their last-ever film.
LAUREL and HARDY - The European Tours takes us to many fascinating places we have never been to before, and readers will be captivated by the journey. From it all, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy emerge as warm and lovable (but vulnerable) men - and the reader will experience their every emotion throughout these previously undocumented tours.
Following on from the publication of 'LAUREL & HARDY - The British Tours' and 'LAUREL and HARDY - The US Tours' -- the 'Tours Trilogy' is now complete.
