MY HALF WAS ON THE BOTTOM
Men O’ War is the ‘Film in Focus’ for our Winter 2022/23 issue. We are thrilled to present exclusive articles written and contributed by world-renowned Laurel and Hardy authors and experts Richard W. Bann and Randy Skretvedt. The two film historians share their remarkable insights into the production of the picture, gained from decades of research, including first–hand interviews with cast and crew from the Hal Roach studios.
In addition, we are also thrilled to feature a new article by film historian and author Glenn Mitchell and our esteemed editor Patrick Vasey will be chipping in for good measure. We also have our regular features, which include ‘Auction Watch’, which showcases interesting items that have come up on internet auctions since the last edition, and some marvellous rare items from The Hammond Collection. So much to look forward to – but remember, “we’ve only got fifteen cents!”.
