They were (and still are) the kings of movie comedy teams: Abbott and Costello, Laurel and Hardy, Martin and Lewis, The Marx Brothers and The Three Stooges.
Today, new generations continue to discover their antics for the first time, thanks to reruns of their films on cable channels and the release of them on DVD, Blu-ray and streaming video. The Ultimate Classic Comedy Teams Movie Poster Book
celebrates their legacies by presenting, for the first time together in one book, 100 full color movie posters originally used to promote their films (20 posters for each team).
In addition, there are chapters containing sample posters for foreign releases and re-releases of their films, compilation films and film festivals, and solo films.
