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
Punch Drunks
Horses' Collars
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.
Burial Information.

**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.

The Three Stooges with Shemp Howard
Shemp's real name was Samuel Howard but his grandmother couldn't say "Sam".
She instead said, "Shem" and that's how he got the name "Shemp".
My favorite shorts with Shemp are:

Brideless Groom (Hold hands, you love birds)
Sing A Song of Six Pants
Shivering Sherlocks
The Hot Scots
I'm A Monkey's Uncle
Crime On Their Hands
The Ghost Talks
Who Done It
Malice In The Palace
Vagabond Loafers
Dopey Dicks

Favorite line from "Vagabond Loafers":
(Shemp goes to get another Pipe and finds one connected)
"Hey Moe, no wonder the water don't woik. These pipes are all clogged up with wires!"
Oh my God! The poor Cook!

.

They DID get seriously hurt. Moe broke his ankle during the filming of one short.
During another he broke three ribs in a stunt fall. (He got up, double slapped Curly and Larry and then fainted
because the pain was so great.)
Larry really DID get a fountain pen stuck in his forehead.
Curly got a really bad gash in his head from a prop that fell on his head. (He got it bandaged up,
used a different camera angle and completed filming. Not long afterward, Curly had a small stroke.)

I have 487 Three Stooges sound bites and 35 videos.
I just recently bought the entire Three Stooges Catalog with all the Stooges:
Moe, Larry, Curly, Shemp, Joe and Curly Joe.
I was introduced to The Three Stooges via a Morning children's program in Dallas, Texas
called "Slam Bang Theater" starring Icky Twerp.

I liked Shemp. He was funny in his own way.
My Ranking of the Third Stooge:

Curly (High energy, Improv, high voice)
Shemp (Medium energy, laid back stoogeness)
Joe Besser (Joe just didn't have it in him to be a Stooge)
Curly Joe (I am unfamiliar with his work)

Curly and Shemp each had their own separate style.
Curly, Shemp and Moe were all brothers.

This is the classic scene where Moe suffers from a concussion and several broken ribs. He completed the episode and was then hospitalized.

https://www.youtube....h?v=ODFMXGmd0Tw

I'm with you Captain, I loved Shemp and admired him looking for work outside of the Stooges, mind you he hated Healy. The most notable, even with it being short, is the sketch with W.C Fields as the bartender.
Loved Curly as well. Depending on the day those two swapped being my favorite.
In reality, Larry had a calloused cheek from Moe slapping him.

Stooges most Violent Episode

Favorite Line:

Lady: "I must say, you're a most unusual dancer!"
Curly: " I come from a family of dancers! My father died dancing.....ON THE END OF A ROPE!"

Wow, EVP... I believe you're right about that being the most violent episode!  :o
I of course realize that most of the props were rubber, etc.... but still a lot of dangerous interchanges going on.

Whenever I need a good laugh, I give a listen to this sound byte.
The Boys are supposed to fire a Shell filled with laughing gas at the enemy.
As always, the Boys get everything bollixed up, point the cannon straight up
and it comes down on top of them.

I think this appeals more to the male species. Ha ha!!
My husband loves the 3 Stooges. I would rather watch paint dry than them.

I love The Three Stooges. I'd watch them every Saturday morning on my local TV station. Also on New Years Eve, they'd run a Three Stooges marathon. 24 hours of nonstop hi-jinks and hilarity. :happy0045:

IMDB:
Samuel Horwitz aka Shemp Howard 'The Forgotten Stooge' (11 March 1895 - 22 November 1955)
Moses Harry Horwitz aka Moe Howard 'The Boss Stooge' (19 June 1897 - 04 May 1975)
Jerome Lester Horwitz aka Curly Howard 'Babe' (22 October 1903 - 18 January 1952)

All the women I've known just don't get the Stooges. Obviously it's a gender thing, but I wonder why?

Vlawde, You can't lump all of us females together. I grew up watching the Three Stooges, even their cartoon version. ;)
