Vernon Dent's last Stooge film?
« on: July 06, 2013, 07:34:35 AM »
Does anyone know Vernon Dent's last Stooge film with new footage.  I see he retired in 1953 but was in films at least until 1957.  He was blind by the time of Shemps funeral in 1955.

Knutzy Knights
Now you ask me if I believe a man can become a wolf. Well, if you mean can he take on the physical characteristics of an animal, no, it's fantastic. However, I do believe that most anything can happen to a man in his own mind.

If I'm not mistaken, his last new footage was in 'Knutzy Knights' as Shemp_Diesel mentioned, but with the use of stock footage, he also shows up in 'Guns-A-Poppin'.

If there's no other place around the place, I reckon this must be the place, I reckon.

Was it 100% stock footage?  I seem to recall not?  Which would mean that Dent was either fully blind or darn close to it at the time, right?  I have read that he played parts while blind, but as I watched him carefully in those last shorts, it seemed impossible the he could have been blind.  He was just too aware of his surroundings.

Dent's appearance in GUNS A POPPIN! (1957) is 100% stock footage from 1945's IDIOTS DELUXE.

His last appearance via new footage is KNUTZY KNIGHTS (1954), as noted above by 'Shemp_Diesel' and 'Squirrelbait.'

Dent's final Stooge short with real live footage was KNUTZY KNIGHTS.
