Female comedy teams( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 9 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
