Oh boy. No stunt doubles were harmed.
Now THAT'S entertainment.
My older brother and I would laugh ourselves into hyperventilation watching the Stooges after school.
Same here. Funny stuff!
I never watched the Three STROOGES when I was young.
Oh man, they were the best!
Even pro wrestlers get sports injuries.
The Stooges with Officer Joe Bolton.... Many afternoons as a kid
a wise guy eh? why I oughta....
I loved the stooges when I was a kid. A while back, I learned that the 2 kids who lived across the street from me when I was growing up, now own the rights to the 3 Stooges catalog. Their mom married Curly Joe Derita.
Mom didn't like me watching the Stooges. Many years later, I asked her why. She said that she had taken my older brother to see them live (sometime in the 50s) at a local supermarket and that they did a bunch of routines...but cussed like sailors. She hauled my brother out and left. I never saw my brother watch the Stooges on TV.
I have to assume that was either with Joe Besser or Curly-Joe DeRita. Neither of them were funny in my book.
I watched them so much that I no longer can. I know all the lines, all the routines. They're brilliant...
"We get half a slice o' ham, & half an egg apiece... you get a whole bone & a whole eggshell... and you're squawkin!?"
We were allowed to watch the three stooges but we were forbidden to laugh, it was thought to be undignified.
Moe reminds me of a very sadistic late father-in-law. Unpleasant association!
Larry reminds me of former NYC mayor Ed Koch. Funny association.
Curly's frustrations make it (periodically) worth watching. Gives me coping strategies/venting sounds.
Shemp...what can we say. We all Shemp sometimes.
Curly Joe? Too sad to consider.
My brother and I would try to imitate the Stooges' battles, but almost immediately just started to hit each other as hard we could. Quite the diagnostic mime, that....
Who hasn't wanted to ...
a few years back I bought a boxed-set of EVERY short the Stooges did. EVERYONE!
It cost something like $30
HD and the works.
Sign me "Living Large in Iowa"
Somewhere long ago I read that either Shemp or Larry got jabbed with a fountain pen during filming and I always wondered if it was Larry during the incident above. Shemp seemed to pick up a mark on his nose during his tenure that didn't seem to go away so I wondered what that was about too. I got to meet Moe's son and daughter (and Sally Starr for you Philly boys around my age) many moons ago...all very nice people. Great times.
Out at Kern River golf course there's a signed blown up pic of the three stooges that's been hanging there for years, I'll bet no one who is out there now has any idea how it come to be there. I'll have to ask next time I'm out there.
Curly is God
I think I saw that on a wall somewhere back in the day.
Clapton wrote that, he never would say why.
