The Original Theme
I've been on here a long time and I've seen all kinds of posts about Movies, TV and Music.
In all that time I've never seen any subject regarding my favorite comedy knuckleheads
The Three Stooges.
Like any fan of "The Boys", I have my favorite shorts. They are:
Men In Black
Pop Goes The Easel
Disorder In The Court
Cash and Carry
Oily To Bed, Oily To Rise
Three Sappy People
You Nazty Spy
Boobs In Arms *
A Bird In The Head
Halfwits Holiday **
*Actor Richard Fiske played Sgt. Hugh Dare whom the Stooges constantly outwitted to the point
where the frustrated Sergeant would break down in tears and say "Everything happens to me!"
Fiske, whose real name was Thomas Richard Potts left Hollywood to fight against the Nazi's in World War II.
Mr. Potts was promoted to the rank of 2nd Lieutenant.
He was killed in action on August 10, 1944 during the Battle For Brest in Operation Overlord.
**Before the filming of the climactic pie fight, Curly went missing. Moe went to his dressing room and found him slumped in a chair. When Curly didn't answer, Moe realized that he'd had a stroke.
Moe went over and kissed him and then rushed him to the hospital. With the exception of a cameo in "Hold That Lion",
It was the end of his career.
Jerome Lester Howard passed away on January 18, 1952.
