Why are they not on the site as cast members?
Curly Howard deserves a spot if Groucho Marx has one.
The Stooges were the kings of slapstick in my opinion.
Curly Howard has a page but no films credited. Are any Three Stooges films on here?
Joe Besser has a page.
He was a stooge for 2 years, already a B star at that point, he decided that he did not like to be hit so Larry took twice the abuse. Still he has a fey quality that was funny in that sort of man’s man enviornment; his catch phrase whine when he was hit was, “Ouch!!! Why’d you have to hit so hard!?”
In his later life he wrote a book called “Once a Stooge Always a Stooge.” He was my favorite stooge and he did some good work with Bud and Lou too.
I grew up watching these gentlemen and their fine short films. I’ll be very happy when they all get pages.
Shemp was in the Bank Dick, criterion #78
I’ve just recently started picking up their cheap DVD collections and showing them to my kids. I was worried that my girls, already so used to the bright colors and quick editing of Spongebob wouldn’t like the Stooges.
But they LOVE them! It’s fantastic to be able to share this with my kids and goes to show these guys really had something. They still make me laugh.
my dad got me hooked on it as a kid House of Leaves.
first time I saw the scene with shemp, larry, and moe making food for the egyptian guys (with the dog and the cat under the table) I literally cried I laughed so hard. Every time shemp cut the food the dog would cry. I still even laugh thinking about it.
My favorite is the one where Curly has to get his tooth pulled (anyone know the name?)
