Max Davidson comedies ( Visual )
4 editions published in 2011 in 3 languages and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Max Davidson (1875-1950) is one of the numerous forgotten Hollywood supporting actors who acted in innumerable movies. His heyday was in the late 1920s when he was engaged at the Hal Roach Studios for a series of Jewish comedies which belong to the best and funniest shorts the studio ever produced. The 2-disc DVD set presents all the existing comedies as well as Davidson's first sound film and documentation of the lost films with rare scripts and more than 300 unpublished stills. All films focus on Davidson as the henpecked Jewish family father who has to struggle with his good-for-nothing son(s) and a daughter who falls in love with a non-Jewish boy."--Container

We'll get 'em in sequins : manliness, Yorkshire cricket and the century that changed everything by Max Davidson( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A truly unique and fascinating look at the changing nature of masculinity and manliness, told through the lens of a series of Yorkshire County Cricket Club player portraits through the ages.<br/><br/>George Hirst was a man of his time. His apocryphal quotation "We'll get 'em in singles"epitomises his no-fuss approach to all matters, and his distate for excess or ostentation. His stiff upper lip was a requisite part of his Edwardian manliness. Fast forward a century or so to Darren Gough's besequinned victory on <span style="font-style: italic;">Strictly Come Dancing</span> or to Michael Vaughan's final teary press conference, and the different versions of what it means to be masculine are worlds apart.<br/><br/>It is one of the oldest cliches in sports writing to say that sport mirrors life. And yet, in this instance, the world of Yorkshire cricket has so faithfully mirrored the outside world that the cliche is unavoidable. Yorkshire, sobrest of counties, has given us some remarkable characters over the years - Len Hutton, Geoffrey Boycott, and Fred Trueman to name just a few. Through portraits of these and other Yorkshire players, and the values that they shared with their contemporaries, this wonderfully original book maps the contours of a sexual revolution whose tremors are still being felt today
Female comedy teams ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Trying to find a counterpart to his very successful comedy team Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, producer Hal Roach made several attempts to combine two female comedians. The first team with Anita Garvin & Marion Byron did only three films before both actresses separated. Nevertheless, their "A pair of tights" is today seen as one of the greatest silent two reel comedies ever done. Ath the beginning of the 1930s the teaming of platinum blonde Thelma Todd with shy ZaSu Pitts and later with clumsy Patsy Kelly was a more fruitful idea, resulting in a series of sound shorts which ran successfully for five years until Todd's mysterious death in 1935. The 2-disc DVD set presents a selection of the best shorts in restored versions." --Container
