Ok, so I was looking on Shemp's Wikipedia page today and this piece of information about his return to the Three Stooges caught my eye:
"Shemp's income increased significantly over the next several years due to this career change."
Yes, I know it's Wikipedia, but this does actually make me curious as to what the financial situation actually was in this case. Does anyone know if Shemp was taking a financial loss or financial gain when he rejoined the act? Also, how did this compare to what he was making when he was under contract to Universal?
