About the Book
Abbott and Costello were the most popular comedians of the 1940s, with burlesque-inspired routines that enthralled audiences on both radio and television. However, their films have oddly not received the same level of attention from critics and writers as those of other comedy teams.
This book is a scene-by-scene, film-by-film guide to their movies, making a compelling case for their inclusion at the very top table of comic artists. Featuring new research and some surprising revelations, the book will introduce nervous newcomers to the delights of this uproarious team and provide confirmed fans with the ultimate companion to their work. Also included is a foreword by John Landis, the celebrated director and Abbott and Costello devotee.
