Aye, but redheaded lassies have the problem of fair skin that burns easy. My ex couldn't even go out on a bright day without heavy makeup, lots of layers, and a big floppy hat. The California sun is very unforgiving to a wee Irish rose.

There's a 4 page article on [Julia] in The Three Stooges Journal, issue #76...The info that we know now, it makes perfect sense to me why the Horwitz family...would say Jerry's marriage would've been annuled. The Horwitz family was very orthodox, and a divorce within the orthodox community back then (and now, too, probably) was definitely frowned upon.Weren't Jerry and Julia quite young? I'd heard they were barely out of their teens...and I've got a brother myself who married when he and his gal were just teenagers. She dropped a calf only a few months after the wedding, which made a few of the old-kraut Lutherans in my church look down their noses at us. They were together a few years, then they split, and she took the kid...and he's already on wife two though he's barely 25. So, yeah I can relate. I guess Julia either cared about Curly or her own reputation too much to step forth and demand money (not that Curly was ever really rich; between White Fang Cohn's notorious penny-pinching, his zest for life, and his medical bills he must have struggled to stay afloat).
I don't know if you remember the part in HEAVENLY DAZE where a fountain pen gets caught in Larry's forehead. Apparantly, it really hurt, and he let a few [swears] fly not knowing there was a group of schoolchildren watching on a field trip.I knew about the pen screwup--seems it missed the mark by an inch or two--but not about Larry cussing. Another story goes that Moe chased the director around the room in a fit because he promised Larry wouldn't get hurt doing that stunt. With that little circus going on, I imagine those schoolkids were either thrilled or traumatized for life.
There's an (unconfirmed) story that Buddy Hackett was being considered for the part, but he turned it down because he didn't want to do hard slapstick— he was afraid of getting injured.
I still never understood the story about the whole "hitting with pipes." As a comedian, I would think that Hackett would've known that foam appliances were used, even if he wasn't that familiar with the Stooges. Now, if he'd seen them on stage....that may have changed his mind--the fact that the slaps were real would be off-putting to most.
