Film Fiction Series (7 Book Series)
From Book 1: What happens when Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy’s long-lost 1927 short subject, “Hats Off,” the Holy Grail of comedy aficionados around the world, is discovered in a Cuban film archive? Follow an international group of film scholars and historians in this work of fiction as they gather at an annual silent movie festival in Pordenone, Italy, for an eagerly anticipated screening—and attempt to avert certain disaster when a major problem arises.

There’s a lot at stake here. After all, as every lover of Laurel and Hardy knows, “Hats Off” was the blueprint for the team’s Oscar-winning short, “The Music Box.” The comedians moved a washing machine up the steps to a hilltop home in the earlier film, a crated piano in the latter, but the resemblance between the two films shot five years apart at the same location is striking, based on the available evidence.

The bonus story, “Charley Chase Meets Calvin Coolidge,” takes us to the Hal Roach Studios in the glory days of 1924. Chase, the popular comedian perhaps best known for his cameo appearance in Laurel and Hardy’s “Sons of the Desert,” is in production on his latest film short when the President—who is up for election that fall—arrives for a studio visit.

Chase and Coolidge have a mutual friend in Will Rogers, who has his own ideas about the surprise the comedian has cooked up in tandem with director Leo McCarey. Studio boss Hal Roach, teenaged actress Martha Sleeper and title writer Beanie Walker also make appearances in this work of fiction.

“Mary Pickford Meets George Bernard Shaw,” the bonus story included in the first edition of “Hats Off to Pordenone,” is currently available under its own title.

Expanding Universe (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: With the first STAR WARS trilogy, George Lucas successfully translated the classic hero’s journey from ancient myth into the mainstream understanding of modern popular culture. We witness young Luke Skywalker, a humble farm boy, receiving a Heaven-sent message with a call to adventure which leads him to a kindly old wizard who gives him a magic sword and takes him beyond the limits of the world as he has always known it. From there he storms a fortress, saves a beautiful princess, travels through the belly of the beast to discover his true nature in a celestial temple, and comes into contact with a spiritual power that allows him to face off against a black knight and destroy a near-indestructible monstrosity capable of devouring entire worlds. It is a story resonant with the classic mythological motifs that Joseph Campbell identified in the first part of his book, THE HERO WITH A THOUSAND FACES. George Lucas followed up on Luke’s adventure by outlining the history of Luke’s father Anakin Skywalker, the hero fated to doom the galaxy to the evils Luke would later be tasked with undoing. In Anakin we find a more primordial archetype of the hero. His fate is not defined by moral pretext, but rather by a mandate to uncreate the world he is born into and recreate it in his own image. This too is echoed in THE HERO WITH A THOUSAND FACES, but instead of following the young hero as he assumes the role of the World Redeemer, the hero of the prequel saga is the pitiless embodiment of the Cosmogonic Cycle. He is the inevitable dissolution of one generation and its ideals as it is being succeeded by the next. So we have two trilogies of films covering the spectrum of classic hero stories and archetypes. This also represents George Lucas’ complete contribution to the STAR WARS saga in film. Is there anything left to say? When Lucas sold the franchise to Disney in 2012, it certainly seemed that the core story was over. Even when Disney announced that they were planning a third trilogy of films that would continue the story in EPISODE VII, the question remained as to whether there was anything new that could be introduced to the overall mythology of STAR WARS. In order to address that question, it’s worthwhile to analyze the latest addition to the saga as its own story, as a continuation of the original films, and as a return to the mythic themes the STAR WARS movies have always so successfully explored.
