Harry Langdon, a comic who appeared in Vaudeville, silent movies, and sound film comedies, held a unique position in Hollywood history. After a slow start in movies, he joined Keystone, the famous Mack Sennett studio. Langdon’s screen character was quite different from the broad slapstick that was popular at the time. When paired with director Frank Capra in films such as The Strong Man (1926), Tramp,Tramp, Tramp (1926), and Long Pants (1927), he rivaled Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and Harold Lloyd. Chuck Harter and Michael J. Hayde’s biography includes a comprehensive Filmography. Lavishly illustrated. "You can hear the laughter flowing through the book. Langdon's comic timing was about taking enough time to figure out a situation. The reader should do the same, and not rush through these wonderful pages." - Brad Linaweaver, Mondo Cult "[The authors] have done a great service for comedy aficionados and historians, offering up a cornucopia of information on every one of Langdon’s screen appearances, rare photos, vintage magazine articles, and more. If you have any interest in Harry Langdon, this book is invaluable. - Leonard Maltin in Leonard Maltin’s Movie Crazy
