"I LOVE THESE BOOKS! AND I'LL BET THAT ANYONE WHO CARES ABOUT LAUREL AND HARDY, OUR GANG AND HOLLYWOOD HISTORY WILL FEEL THE SAME WAY." Leonard Maltin

"LEON SMITH'S JOURNEY BACK TO THE SITES OF MANY OF THE EPISODES IN THE LAUREL AND HARDY AND OUR GANG CANON IS AN EXTENSION OF A PROFESSIONAL CURIOSITY INTO THE KNOWLEDGE THAT THE FACT OF PLACE EVOKES THE MEMORY OF EXPERIENCE. IN THE CASE OF 'FOLLOWING THE COMEDY TRAIL' THE RECOLLECTION IS OF SHEER PLEASURE."
Lawrence Christon The Los Angeles Times

"NOW THIS IS A GORGEOUS LABOR OF LOVE, RICH WITH PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE SITES AS THEY NOW APPEAR..." Don Thompson, Editor Movie Collector's World
