Years ago i saw a mid to late 1960's movie with Moe in the movie. If i remembered right, Moe just got off a train(or maby not), and as he was approching a sidewalk he noticed a guy in long hair(who was probably into the Beatles like alot of youths or young adults were back then), and as Moe was looking at him looking a little angry or offended, Moe said to him, "You Beatle". It seemed modern rock of that day offended Moe thats why he called him that. Anyohe know the title of that movie? I googled and cant find anything. I wonder what Moe thought about Alice Cooper, haha.

      You're thinking THE OUTLAWS IS COMING!  A Japanese man with a Beatle haircut walks out, and Moe asks, "A Japanese Beatle?" 

      Not so much The Three Stooges, but according to Alice Cooper, people from the Stooges generation like Mae West, George Burns, and Groucho Marx, who Alice did know, viewed Alice's act like an extension of Vaudeville.

Thanks for the reply. I kind of really remembered Moe's exact 2 words were, "you Beatle", but maby he does say those exact 2 words to that guy later on in the conversation. It should be that movie you mentioned because how often does Moe make comments about the Beatles in movies? (Really cool) Alice also appeared in photos with Groucho, (I just noticed now Alice appeared in photos with Colonial[kernal] Sanders), ha. It would of been nice if Alice appeared in a photo with Moe. Moe was also a really cool gent.

This might help:  I just watched The Outlaws Is Coming for the weekly reviews, and the gag is exactly like Metaldams describes it, verbatim.  There is no further action with the Japanese Beatle, and no further Beatle references in the movie.
     NOW:  I'm not exactly sure where it is, but in some reference work, maybe even on this site, there is a color still of the Stooges working with Danny Thomas, taken from a TV special called, I believe, either Danny Thomas Meets the Comedians or Danny Thomas and the Comedians.  At one point, the stooges are cutting up, and to get their attention Danny yells at Moe " Hey ! Aged Beatle ! "  ( he might have said "ancient Beatle", I'm not sure ) and Moe reacts big.  Again, no further Beatles references, and the bit, whatever it was, proceeds from there.  I have no idea if this video exists in any form today, but I saw it on the night it first ran in the late '60's, and that was the gag.  Ask me why I remember it today, I have no idea, aside from the fact that I was a stooge freak then as well.  In any case, this sounds more like the gag that Mr. Dip is remembering.  I'd call you Dom, but I don't want to be getting too familiar.

Good memory! Here's a youtube clip where Danny Thomas says, "Hey you, aged Beatle" to Moe who is starting a Shakespeare-type drama line.

I like being called Mr. Dip, haha. I checked out that video on youtube of Danny Thomas saying, "Hey, aged Beatle" to Moe while on stage, no its not the "you Beatle" i'm referring to, thanks though. It might be from that 1965 movie The outaws is coming, i just ordered that on ebay so i'll now for a fact if i'm referring to that movie once i watch it. It may not be though since that movie i saw years ago seemed to be from 1968 or 69 and the young man who Moe said that to had long Beatles hair style of that time(not Beatles hair style of 65) and he was english looking not japanese. By the way, Moe did have a 1965 Beatles hair style but very short on the sides, ha. [3stooges]

Interestingly enough, Outlaws was filmed in May 1964, just a few months after The Beatles landed in America and appeared on Ed Sullivan.  Definitely incorporating current culture, and as a Beatles fan, a reference that would not be lost on me like some cultural stuff in the 30's and 40's films.

I wasn't born then, but my Mom was at both Shea Stadium shows. Crazy when you think about it.
