BUCK PRIVATES by Ron Palumbo, Foreword by Tom Smothers (paperback)
MagicImage Filmbooks is proud to launch a brand new series featuring the classic comedies of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello with their first hit, BUCK PRIVATES. Ron Palumbo, co-author of “Abbott and Costello in Hollywood” and founder of the Official Abbott and Costello Fan Club, has written an outstanding production history, lavishly illustrated with over 150 stills and frame grabs. “The result is not just a thorough look at one milestone movie,” says Leonard Maltin, “but a rich serving of Hollywood history.” As always, each MagicImage volume features the film’s original Shooting Script and Pressbook.
"Hollywood in Abbott and Costello’s era is such a magical period in our imaginations. MagicImage’s upcoming book, Buck Privates, is the next best thing to going back and watching them make the film. Any student of comedy, or anybody who loves comedy and comedy teams, is going to be thrilled with this book." — Tom Smothers, Comedian
