    A program of Three Stooges Rarities will be part of this year's Slapsticon 2008 schedule. The festival of rare silent & sound comedies is held in Arlington, Virginia each July. This year the dates are July 17 thru 20, 2008. Exact titles of the Stooges Rarities are not yet announced, but a partial film schedule plus other info can be found at the Slapsticon website.

    http://www.slapsticon.org

    The Stooges Rarities are being presented by filmmmaker, writer, producer, director, finder-of-rare-films, old friend and all-around swell guy Paul Gierucki. So you KNOW there will be some real rarities. Paul has a great talent for digging up cool rare stuff. Many Stooges fans may already be familiar with his DVD set "Stooges: The Men Behind The Mayhem". Also two other DVD sets he recently produced, "The Forgotten Films Of Roscoe Arbuckle" and "Industrial Strength Keaton" can not be too highly recommended.

    This year's Slapsticon will be the sixth annual, and it is one event I would not miss (and I haven't yet). Lots of super-rare comedy films and lots of good friends attending...it's always been well worth the trip.

    SLAPSTICON 2008 is a four-day, international film festival dedicated to classic motion picture comedy! From Thursday July 17, through Sunday July 20, film lovers from around the world are invited to converge on Arlington Virginia., to attend screenings of rare shorts and selected feature-length comedies.

    Sponsored by the Arlington County Department of Cultural Affairs, SLAPSTICON 2008 will take place at the county's spacious Rosslyn Spectrum Theatre in Arlington, Virginia.

    Opening night at the Slapsticon will start off on Thursday night July 17 at 7:00pm with a triple slap as Paul Gierucki  presents his 3 Stooges Rarities Show. Paul is being tight-lipped about the surprises in store, except to say, "The Stooge show will feature rare newsreel footage, home movies, outtakes, television appearances, interviews, forgotten commercials and a few suprises that are still being finalized. This program is guaranteed to contain something that will be new to even the most die-hard stooge fan."
