  • The Three Stooges (and Ted Healy) film "Myrt And Marge" has been restored and will be shown at a film festival over Labor Day weekend, hosted by John Carpenter.

    The following is from Facebook:

    Author Bill Cassara will introduce a new 35mm restoration print of "MYRT AND MARGE" and autograph his new biography of Ted Healy [Nobody's Stooge] at Cinecon 51 in Hollywood at the Egyptian Theater over Labor Day Weekend.

    If you or anybody else is going, please let us know how the film is.  If I get a copy of it later on, you know darn well I'll let you all know my opinion when the time comes.  I've been known to do that once in a while.

  • Hopefully, the restored film gets released on DVD/Blu-Ray, even if it's just a DVD-R.

  • If I can get some time off of work that week, I'm going to make an effort to go.

    I wonder what made Universal restore what is a rather obscure and forgotten film from their catalog. Does anyone have any details on the restoration process or how it was decided?

  • I have a bootleg DVD of Myrt and Marge and its very interesting.  You get to see the Stooges and Ted at the end acting as themselves with hair greased back.

  • I'm still hoping for an official DVD release of this movie.  We need to bug Universal Pictures.  I really wish that this movie, as well as Fugitive Lovers and Start Cheering would be released on DVD, officially.  I need these to complete my collection.  Does anyone know who to contact?

  • I think the thing I've been waiting for is someone to release Shemp's three Monogram features from the mid to late 40s, but who knows if that day will ever come...

    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.

    Yeah, I know.  I was always hoping for those three movies to be released on DVD, preferably as a trilogy.  It would work. 

    I'm still waiting for "Fugitive Lovers," "Start Cheering" and, as I previously said, "Myrt And Marge."
