VERNON DENT, STOOGE HEAVY: SECOND BANANA TO THE THREE STOOGES AND OTHER FILM COMEDY GREATS (paperback)
You may not know the name, but you've seen him in countless Three Stooges comedies, usually playing the gruff authority figure. After years of working in the shadows of Moe, Larry, Curly (and Shemp), as well as the great silent film comedian Harry Langdon, Vernon Dent is finally receiving the attention he deserves with this outstanding biography. Written by Bill Cassara (Edgar Kennedy: Master of the Slow Burn), Vernon Dent: Stooge Heavy contains never-before-seen photographs and a massive filmography. Vernon's story is told with the respect it deserves; it is funny, touching, and true. Once read, you'll never forget his name again.
"It's a worthy tribute to the consummate comedic heavy." - Shock Cinema
