General Discussion / Replacement Stooge Legacy
« on: June 22, 2017, 04:39:59 PM »
I have been a fan of this site for EONS ... IS there a category, topic, thread, etc, that lists the replacement stooges as ... wait, nevermind, what a DUMB question. WERE THEY EVER CALLED "The Replacement Stooges" except by US, the adoring fans of ANYTHING Stooge related?

General Discussion / Question Stooge Replacements
« on: April 17, 2017, 04:16:50 PM »
This question is for the informed crowd here at ...
I was on a search to find a YouTube copy of the "April Showers" song that Spike Jones made with Doodles Weaver ... and I ran across some "very" short subject (10 minutes or less) video titles of "A Day with Doodles Weaver" ...the one I watched was "Doodles Goes Surfing" ... I am not sure, because the way they filmed the tiny short was in the style of very old, bad degraded film quality film, BUT I think the other persons in the short are Mousie Garner and maybe others in the Replacement Stooges.

General Discussion / David Warner Spotting!
« on: March 14, 2017, 11:26:36 AM »
This is a pic from the Monty Python movie "The Meaning of Life" in the sequence titled "Every Sperm is Sacred" where I think this is David Warner. Do you guys agree?
David Warner was the bad guy in the long ago movie "TRON" (with Jeff Bridges) and also popular in the Star Trek the Next Generation shows as the bad guy Romulan.

General Discussion / Jurassic Park and Jaws
« on: February 25, 2017, 10:00:35 AM »
Fellows and Ladies,
The movie "Jurassic Park" is a 1993 expression of Spielberg's desire to make a thriller movie he was unable to do to his own satisfaction with the 1976 release of "Jaws" ... just your thoughts ... AND I know I have seen all the "extra movie" clips and segments that the DVDs have to offer, but Spielberg never put them both together.

Nitpicker's Corner / NOT a nitpick ... just an observation

Episode ... "Movie Maniacs"

The early scenes where Moe is wanting to primp for the boys' upcoming premier into Hollywood, and Moe says, when he commands the other two to make his pants look regal, "Come on, press my pants. I want to look the Berries when I get into movies." BUT I KNOW Moe was saying, "I want to look the "BARRIES" when I get into movies. Meaning ... of course, Lionel Barrymore.

General Discussion / Actor's Names ... and all that
« on: December 16, 2016, 04:12:56 PM »
I was doing some piddling on our site here when it was mentioned that Ted Healy's wife was Betty Healy.  ....   Now, as far as I know, Ted Healy was NEVER Ted Healy. He was born Ernest Nash right here in my home state of Texas (the town of Kaufman. if you were curious).

Okay, I understand about stage names, they are just as fake as the actors pretending to be someone else is. But ... to be remembered as somebody you only pretended to be on TV? "Ted and Betty Healy" ... is it such a great risk to personal well being to adopt a fake stage name? I'm just curious ... I have witnessed it all my life that actors REAL NAMES were very different from their stage names ... with the very real exception of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

I realize that our boy's adopted the last name of "Howard" only because the decidedly English speaking public they were presenting themselves to could not say "Horowitz" in the proper Jewish dialect, or that it was just a mouthful of consonants, who knows what goes thru directoral and produceoral  minds. The same can be said for Larry Fine's name ... his was Feinberg. In his defense, I think he was just wanting to have his name be tripping easily off the tongue.

An exposition by a fellow Stooge Fan -
The Three Stooges are a reflection of ourselves.

General Discussion / Production Oddities
« on: June 30, 2016, 03:06:40 PM »
I am a fan of the explosion of extra stuff added to movies we buy these days - featurettes, 8mm film clips, etc.

ONE I have found strange was watching an extra feature from the movie E.T. I purchased recently ...
In it, Steven Spielberg was explaining a scene they made in the movie, and the entire time he was shooting it he was wearing a hard hat. I suppose, for some reason, there was a hazard something might fall on your head with injurious consequences. BUT ... while the SAME feauturette filmed them interacting with the shoot of the film, Steven and his film making buddies were wearing the hard hats, but, of course, the actors were not. Whats going on with the hard hat thing in the "how we make movies" extras department? ARE the director's heads more important than the actors? ..

I suppose that Steven and his bunch were SO wrapped up in directing that they didn't remember or even realize they were still wearing hard hats, but - are the film crew of the "film extras" crew also wearing hard hats and aslo so desensitized to the silliness of wearing hard hats? Just curious

General Discussion / Demolition Man Politics?
« on: March 03, 2016, 03:23:08 PM »
Hey ... just thinking, do you remember the movie with Sylvester Stallone, Wesley Snipes and Sandra Bullock "Demolition Man"? THEY stated (the scene with Sandra & Sly in the car going to the Taco Bell dinner) that Arnold Schwarzenegger was elected President when the Constitution was  edited as a Bill of Rights that allowed foreigners to run for President. With Donald Trump changing the landscape of politics ... do you think Arnold has a chance to make this movie prediction come true?

General Discussion / The Jughead Cap
« on: January 23, 2016, 02:22:40 PM »
Shemp wears one in the episode "Three Arabian Nuts", and Besser repeats the hat in a remake episode ... you know, the ONLY time I EVER seen a guy wear a Jughead cap was in an Archie Comic strip ... the character "Jughead" in fact ... was this a hat worn in the 30's and 40's? or was it only in the cartoon comics pages?

General Discussion / Religious Jokes in Stooge Episodes/Movies
« on: January 23, 2016, 02:03:19 PM »
I wondered how many lurk in our boys recorded repertoire ... after a help from my Stooge brother Metaldams, I ran across this first one

1. 1951 Baby Sitters Jitters -
Larry : "We work as a unit."
Shemp: "Yeah, we're Unitarians!"

Go ahead, help me on this one ... come 'on!!

General Discussion / Forgetful Old Stooge Fan Help
« on: January 23, 2016, 10:53:09 AM »
Hey Guys,
I have been racking my brain about which episode, and, about the actual stooge dialogue that brought about this memory of mine.
Here is my memory ...
My wife was talking about some subject that made me think of the episode where Shemp was in the kitchen (always a great Stooge setting) and was cooking for some reason ...
He was doing his usual thrashing about in the kitchen, but THEN came across a box of some ingredient (I think it was Soap Powder), and said something like (after trying to spell the word "soap") ... "Soup ... soup powder! What'll they think of next?" Then gleefully throws the box into his mixing bowl. I have tagged this memory to an episode where Shemp cooks something where they all end up blowing bubbles at mealtime, but I may be wrong. The BIG Stooge question in my brain is ... "What'll they think of next" in a Shemp episode where he is trying to cook. Am I right or wrong guys? OR ... am I just getting to be a very old Stooge Fan and only visit this site when I can't remember Stooge lines and where they came from? I am watching the Farrelly Stooge Movie right now and having a great time, but I would like to go back to my ultimate Stooge collection and watch the episode with your help.

General Discussion / Language Translation on the Internet
« on: September 12, 2015, 02:50:38 PM »
I am learning the Spanish language from my fellow workmates and from the Pimsleur Language Program CD's I own ... and I have found a significant language weirdness in the fact of internet language "translator" websites ...

1) I asked a free language translator site to give me the Spanish version of "I love you very much my darling bride"
2) I got a Spanish response of "Le amo muchísimo mi novia querida"
3) When I then inputted this into the same free language translator, except Spanish to English, I got "My dear fiancée loved him very much"

Is THIS what Spanish speaking people hear when we say "I love you very much my darling bride"? There is NO mention of a female sex in the translated/translated sentence - in fact it states that the fiancee loved "HIM" ...
I know we are a sex based version of language just like Spanish is, but I also guess that the "free" language translators are NOT going to deliniate tense and context in a sentence. (At least for free, anyway)

General Discussion / Sad Fact

Sad Fact:
Due to satellite imaging, and the relentless quests of man, there are now NO uncharted islands left on Earth ... I feel sorry for King Kong and Gilligan.

General Discussion / Biblical Plagarism
« on: March 14, 2015, 09:41:07 AM »
I recently checked out a cd with dramatized bible stories from the library (these were made by Focus on the Family) ... and found an interesting "plagiarism" in one of the stories. The story was the siege of Jericho, and (without mentioning that "Brink Chetley" is a morph of the Chet Huntley, David Brinkley news program) Brink Chetley speaks to a Middle East expert who's name you Stooge fans should find very familiar ... enjoy.

Questions and Answers / Site Commercials
« on: January 12, 2015, 03:42:51 PM »
Mr. Webmaster Dunrobin,
I am beginning to get little commercial boxes in the right corner of my happy life on I know a webservice MUST be paid for, and we here at have been very weak in supporting you, so I sympathize. AND a campaign to get more support might actually decrease your visitor base ... so my question is, are the commercials a permanent addition to your site?

General Discussion / Larry's Assertion
« on: December 29, 2014, 08:11:41 AM »
During the interview of Larry Fine, Larry asserts that "We never had an original set ... "if Columbia was shooting a western picture, we did western scenes, if they were  shooting a war picture, we did war scenes." Based upon this thought, can a correlation of Stooge shorts be drawn to mirror the production schedule and releases of Columbia pictures? Or was Larry exaggerating (or maybe just bragging)?

General Discussion / The Fates are Smiling
« on: December 19, 2014, 02:26:02 PM »
My school kitchen boss gave each of us cashiers with a zero till balance a few $1 lottery scratch off cards as a gift for the Christmas break ... one of mine won me $40! Svengarlic and the Italian Ice Cream Man (Signor Spumoni) will be pleased to learn I am taking my bride to the movies tonight ... we are going to watch the third "Night at the Museum", and I think it is because its the last time we can see Robin Williams in a movie before he died (except I think there is one other he was in, can't remember the name of it though), and my bride likes him and was crushed to hear of his death. Sometimes the  cards just fall your way ... (about the money, I mean)
I remember .. the other movie was called "A Merry Friggin' Christmas" ... it MUST have been his last acting thing before, but that's just thinking chronologically

General Discussion / Spade Cooley Rockin' in the Rockies
« on: December 01, 2014, 03:37:35 PM »
I am enjoying my ultimate TS collection I got for a smidgeon of the price paid by you guys a few years ago, and I am watching "Rockin' in the Rockies". And right away I see in the credits that Spade Cooley is listed as "King of Western Swing", to which I have always associated THAT title to Bob Wills and his band. After watching the movie, I feel that Spade was actually the first warbler of western swing ... although Bob Wills took it to much greater heights with introducing "scat" and other musical genres into the swing envelope. We will now rename Spade Cooley as "The Father of Western Swing" and leave Bob Wills his legendary title as "The King of Western Swing".

General Discussion / Music Catch Basin
« on: September 10, 2014, 10:29:50 PM »
(I thought it sounded better than a "Music Sink") ... besides, George Carlin once said, "I once found a throw rug in a catch basin"

This thread is now our permanent "music" catch all ... any music trivia, music files, music videos, stories, death of music celebs, or whatever are welcome here.

I shall begin by offering two selections ...
1) Istanbul, Not Constantinople This song has always been a favorite of mine
2) The DEVO rendition of (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction has also been one of my favorites that took the weird, quirky 1960's Stone's version and made it even more strange and quirky.

General Discussion / Popeye the BIGHEAD Man
« on: September 01, 2014, 04:15:20 PM »
William "Billy" Costello (February 2, 1898 – October 9, 1971), was an American live and voice actor, and the original voice of Popeye the Sailor in animated cartoons.

Costello had worked with the Fleischer Studio as the voice of Gus the Gorilla on the Betty Boop radio show and they felt that the raspy voice he had used for that character would work for the new Popeye character they were planning. He was cast to provide the voice for the first Popeye cartoon, 1933's Popeye the Sailor. Costello voiced the next 24 Popeye shorts until he was fired by the Fleischer’s in 1935, allegedly over "bad behavior”, and was replaced with Jack Mercer. The “bad behavior” was Billy’s big head he grew from his popularity, demanding days off and a raise in pay, to which the exec’s at Fleischer Studios found another Popeye imitator to take his place. Billy waged a counter war with Fleischer by recording several songs with Decca records published in the UK ... this one is “Nagasaki” made in 1938.

General Discussion / My Mamma's 45's
« on: August 21, 2014, 03:49:51 PM »
This thread is for my Mother's collection of 45 RPM records I managed to copy onto cassette tape and then to computer ...
The first selection is mainly for SvenGarlic ... I've posted this one before, the lady yodeler that I think Curly spoofed (help me remember the ep ... the Dad knew the girl would remember the yodel)

The other two are 1) Jerry Reed, a master comic country singer, and 2) Wayne Newton, in his very early days of singing.

Here are two opening dialogues from Jimmy Durante's Album "September Song" and Groucho Marx's album "You Bet Your Life" ... enjoy!

Nitpicker's Corner / Star Trek Ticked Off
« on: August 18, 2014, 06:35:02 PM »
IS THERE a theatrical version of ST2 available?
I have purchased a trilogy version of the ST movies (Wrath, Search, Voyage) and in the Wrath movie they STILL insist on the TV cuts ... they cut the parts where McCoy says "Bullshit" in Kirk's Living Room AND when we learn that Peter Preston is Scotty's nephew in Engineering AND the comical exchange between Kirk and Spock when we here Spock respond to Kirk's admission that the young man was his Son by saying "Fascinating" ...? ... the nitpicking Star Trek site I'm following has died recently and I can't find an answer there, so I'm turning to my Stooge buddies, any ideas?
