Two of a Kind: The Morecambe and Wise Story:
Although many double acts have come and gone over the years, none have ever made quite the same impact as Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise - Morecambe and Wise. In this biography, author Paul Burton traces the journey that led to the dup not only find themselves success, but love and admiration in equal measure from the public, their peers and event royalty - an honour the two men never took for granted.
Whether sharing crosstalk with the likes of The Beatles, Des O'Connor, Peter Cushing and Glenda Jackson, parodying classic Hollywood song and dance routines or bantering in their bedroom sketches, Eric and Ernie brought sunshine to millions of people thanks to their various stage, radio, film and television appearances.
Charting their lives and careers, and featuring a sprinkling of anecdotes from their family, friends and colleagues, together with images from the archives, Two of a Kind: The Morecambe and Wise Story is an enjoyable appraisal of the tall one with the glasses and the one with short fat, hairy legs.
