General Discussion / Re: Myrt And Marge has been restored!
« on: August 03, 2015, 01:46:30 PM »
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?

General Discussion / Context to This Stooge Photo?
« on: September 28, 2014, 12:37:34 AM »
I found this on a meme website. The poster said he found it among his father's things and claims it's his grandmother in the photo.

Does anyone have any context? Where was it taken, or is the woman with them famous?

Has anyone ordered this? The first three volumes are available as pressed discs on the WA site, but this one isn't listed. I was wondering if this initial batch is factory pressed like the others.

You can get this for $15.39 on the TCM website utilizing coupon code SORRY30

I watched it in the late 90s when it was on TV Land. I really liked it. I'll pick it up when it gets a bit more affordable -- although with it being Shout Factory I'm guessing its not too likely anytime soon.

Did you get it directly from the Shout! Factory website, metaldams? I received mine in the mail on Thursday but have not had a chance to open it, yet.

I've seen Duck Soup once, and watched The Big Store with my dad when it was on TCM in the early 2000s. I've been meaning to watch the rest of their movies and whatnot, and  given if you order this from the Shout! Factory website you get a nice bonus disc, I picked this up over the weekend.

I'm looking forward to diving in..

If it makes you feel better, Giff, most of my vernacular encompasses phrases and sayings from the 19th and 20th century, so I'll make sure it doesn't disappear from our collective spectrum.

Glad I saw this thread in regards to the forced password reset. I deleted the e-mail address associated with my username close to 8 or so years ago. [pie]

I'm surprised The Three Stooges in Orbit isn't included, either, particularly since it's out of print.

I'll be picking this up for Time Out for Rhythm alone. I have all of the others.

archiezappa must be doing a dance.

Stooges DVD/VHS/Home Video / Re: ROCKET, ROCKIN standalone - 9/2/13

This works well for me since Have Rocket, Will Travel was the only thing I was particularly interested in on the Rare Treasures From The Columbia Pictures Vault set, so now I'll be able get Have Rocket, Will Travel on DVD by itself( I do have it on VHS, but would prefer to have it on DVD).
It might be arguable, but the best thing on the Rare Treasures set is by-far the solo Shemp shorts. Have Rocket is typical for the Curly-Joe era, but there's some real goodies on that set. It's a shame they're not offering it as a separate release besides the MOD version you can buy because it's a must-see for fans.

All I've heard about so far are the two screenings mentioned above. But it's quite possible there could also be a screening at one of the UCLA Film Preservation Festivals and/or Cinecon some time in the future.
I can see an airing on TCM in its future, but having gone to annual Stoogefests in my hometown growing up there's really nothing like seeing the boys on the big screen. I saw an original print of Nertsery Rhymes back in the late 90s at the same theater that held the yearly festivals and it was very memorable. With Hello, Pop! I can only imagine.

I'll do my damndest to head down to Glendale in November, then. Could be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Other than the one at the Alex Theatre -- on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, in Glendale, CA -- which I previously posted about, I have no idea whether there will be any "West Coast screening(s)."
I overlooked your post, but I guess it's something. I live closer to the Bay Area, so it'd be nice if it was up here.

I was hoping Rich would have some insight in to the screening venues.

Any idea if we'll get a West Coast screening?

Sounds like a must-read when it comes out. That was an interesting time in Hollywood.

Perhaps Universal needs to have their own MOD-DVD service or something.  That would be perfect for "Myrt And Marge" as well as other titles.  Can they be convinced?
I'm actually surprised haven't jumped on to the MOD bandwagon. Sony is letting WB manufacture their stuff, so who knows.

Can I please borrow a copy, please??  :-\ :D

Is this nice enough?
PM me.

OK, first thing I gotta ask is does anyone know when volume 3 of the Bowery Boys is coming out?  I have both volumes and I absolutely love what I've seen. I can't stress enough that all Shemp era fans MUST see the films Edward Bernds directed by these guys.  Absolute mandatory viewing.

Even the non Bernds films are fun. The worst are entertaining and the best, like BLUES BUSTERS and MASTER MINDS, are classics.  No sappy romantic couples, no unwanted musical numbers, just one hour plus no BS comedy with some of the earlier films having a pleasant b grade gangster/noir thing thrown in.  Leo Gorcey, Huntz Hall, and Bernard Gorcey rule, and I have 10 films to go, but after that, I hope they at least have a release date announced for volume 3.
Volume 2 hadn't come out that along ago. I wouldn't be surprised to see it in the Fall.

Christine McIntyre passed away 29 years ago today. So what better time than to revisit supporting player researcher Bill Cappello's search for her back in the 1970's?
Thanks for linking to that article. I myself had always wondered if there was any information about her after she retired from acting and was shocked to actually see a photo of her from the 70s. I realize the article was written nearly 20 years ago but it was a great read.

The home video market for catalog titles is really drying up. Someone had the Stooges relevant scenes from Myrt & Marge posted on YouTube awhile back but its since been taken down. It had to have been sourced from the 1988 Cinemax airing.

Justin T hooked me up with a copy about 6 or so years ago. If you haven't seen it, try the Swap Meet like Thump suggested. Or just ask me nicely. :)

Here's hoping there's a screening in proximity to me, then. I'd love to see this on the big screen.

General Discussion / Re: Weight loss thread
« on: June 12, 2013, 09:03:37 PM »
I've been overweight most of my life with the exception of a few years during and after high school. I finally had enough and started this year on working out and going to the gym. The most important and hardest thing for me was changing my diet, though. When you live on fast food and completely overhaul your diet, it's brutal at first. I think I've finally broken that though (the only 'fast food' I tend to get now is Subway occasionally), and as a tip, crock pots work wonders. You can make meals on the cheap and they'll last a good week.

My biggest was 298 about 3 years ago, and I'm currently at 270. It's a slow process but it's gratifying when my pants are becoming loose. My ideal weight is 175, so I got a ways to go.

I consulted a personal trainer with a background in nutrition to help me out and I utilize protein powder after workouts and in the morning to start my day. I don't know if I'll ever get a sculpted physique but so long as this huge gut goes away I'll be content.

Stooges DVD/VHS/Home Video / Re: DAZE DVD seemingly OOP
« on: June 01, 2013, 12:03:21 PM »
While I have this title already, I just checked and you can get it new for $12 and used starting at $6. Doesn't appear to be out of print.
People will have new copies they've never opened and used copies they own to sell. Amazon themselves are no longer selling it, and neither is any other major e-tailer. The disc is OOP, it's just not commanding sky-high prices.

Look at the difference.

Weekly Episode Discussions / Re: Three Little Pigskins (1934)
« on: May 19, 2013, 01:32:28 AM »
Three Little Pigskins was never one of my favorite shorts, although I love the song played during the opening credits.

It was one that's really memorable for me as a kid since I Love Lucy was a regular staple in the house, and seeing her nearly 20 years before that was always interesting.

As I got older I started appreciating the supporting actors in the shorts, and Walter Long was always one of my favorite character players since he worked with Laurel & Hardy.

I'd give it 7.5/10.

General Discussion / Re: Anyone else like 'The Office'?
« on: May 15, 2013, 09:25:50 PM »
I've been a loyal viewer almost since the beginning, but the show had really ran its course a few seasons ago. I don't want to be one of those fans that gripe that the quality dipped when Steve Carrell left, but the show was going downhill even then. Anything after Season 5 is so medicore. I will miss the show, but it's been a total chore getting through this season. It's time for it to end.

Well, the only option that would make sense is Sony just isn't going to press them anymore and make it a MOD title. Haven't they done that with some other films already?

I can't see this as an indiciation of a film boxset like Archiezappa has been clamoring for. With the state of the home video market right now a catalog title (regardless of it being the Stooges) isn't a priority.
