Description by

The first serious study of one of America's earliest motion picture comedians, later one of the most popular actors of the silent screen, and the worlds greatest cock-eyed mirthmaker, Ben Turpin. This book is the result of over forty years of researching and collecting anything and everything on this legendary - though sadly forgotten - comic. Never has such a wealth of information been assembled on one of the most respected comedians of his day, and this book, many are sure to agree, is too long overdue. Leaving no stone unturned - from old magazines and newspapers, to genealogy records, to business associates and family descendants - the author makes this the most complete reference book on the life, career and the films of Ben Turpin, and the most complete appreciation ever. Illustrated with hundreds of rare photos, many never-before-seen, most from the author's long-time personal collection, this book will prove indispensible to anyone and everyone interested in movie comedy and film history.
