General Discussion / Re: Question Stooge Replacements

Just in case anyone is curious ... Doodles Weaver is the hardware store employee in the movie "Its a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" ... he is also the uncle to Sigorney Weaver. (Ghostbusters - Alien)

Sorry guys ... if I had waited until the end of the short short, I would have seen that all parts were played by Doodles (roll credits!). I guess I was too anxious to post my "find". Besides, after watching it again, it is clear that ONLY Doodles in is every shot (in one character or another), and that only once or twice do we see an extra pair of arms or a hand in the film. Maybe a better reply would be to credit Doodles' ability to make himself look like the Replacement Stooges.

General Discussion / Question Stooge Replacements

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.

It LOOKS LIKE David Warner to me ... that's all I'm saying.

Wonderful pic ... I have always had this fantasy about winning the lottery and getting ALL us Stooge.Net guys and gals together for a weekend Stooge Extravaganza where we can solve all the world's problems with an eyepoke and a headbonk.

No, I meant he never made reference to them both in his DVD commentaries about the making of Jurassic Park, this was a comment to spark a discussion about his desire to make a monster movie but the monster was too hokey at the time when he made Jaws.

I will describe the photo for you, then. The scene is Terry Jones as the catholic priest smiling upon the couple, his bride and (who I believe is David Warner) singing together "Every Sperm is Sacred, Every Sperm is Great".

I would have attached the photo, but alas, there is no attach button on this forum.

okay, there is an "Image" button and I gave a clear path to my photo on my computer, but I see only pic icons when I'm using Google Chrome as my internet access. Even my Firefox internet access shows me no photo.

I hope I have the pic for you guys .... otherwise I'll need help learning again how to post a photo on this discussion board.

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.

Sorry ... "his desire" is "Spielberg's desire"

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.

Alright, next question ...
In the academy award nominated short "Men in Black", the dreaded doctor "callboard" appears no less than seven times during the short ... can you name the doctors listed on that call board? AND the placement of "Doctor Howard, Doctor Fine, Doctor Howard" in that callboard?
(Remember, this is the callboard that sighed at the end of the short ... "Ooohhh, they GOT me!")

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.

Hey, ... uh, gasp, gag, ... Hey! I got an idea!! Wow, this is SUPER! NO ONE has EVER thought of THIS before!! Hey, now I know this sounds radical - but ... how about we RE-RELEASE ALL 190 EPISODES of the original Three Stooges  to the movie theaters with provisions to "show them as an appetizer to the movie" and to advertise that "these episodes will be followed by a major motion picture" ..... naah, nevermind, it sucks

The problem with a "one-of-a-kind" comedy act is .... they are ONE-OF-A-KIND. (I am harking back to the 2012 Stooge movie arguments now) ... replacing Shemp was impossible, just as replacing Curly was impossible. And, I will also say that replacing Moe or Larry was impossible. Larry, the incessant middle Stooge, who always got Curly's or Shemp's or Besser's slaps ... and was always available to be the "bad guy" in the episode they were in. Moe, the "almost" fearless leader who blazed wrong trails and forged wrong empires. These men were unique. Farrelly Brothers, we thank you for trying to re-introduce our boys to the "new generation" of movie goers, but since 2012 .... no nibbles yet, eh?

I know its late - late in this thread, BUT .... Why replace Shemp at all? Is it JUST because the Columbia Moguls said "I'm paying for Three Stooges, not Two!" Moe and Larry could have been a great team on their own, if Columbia had the foresight for it. I KNOW, "The TWO Stooges? How lame!" Is there any salve for this replacement wound that was thrust upon our boys? ..... Abbott & Costello - Howard & Fine - .... it kinda has a ring, no?  (heeheehee .... its ALOT better than Horwitz & Feinberg, eh?!)

Okay then ... State Fair Funnel Cake Vendors! (Episode Title - "Ballin' the Cake") (a spoof of the old timey song "Ballin' the Jack")
(I know this is close to the chef/cooking/eating/anything food/ our boys have done, but I just couldn't resist ...)

(Larry): Funnel Caaaaaakkkeeeesss!!! Come and get 'em while they're hot!
(Customer): What kind of flavors do you have?
(Moe): Well, (nudging the other two) we've got ...
(All, chanting): Blueberry, Boysenberry, Raspberry, Shift!
Farkleberry, Whoosenbeery, Snoozeberry, Spit!
(Customer): Snoozeberry!? ... Whoever heard of a snoozeberry?
(Curly): We also have hotdogs!! (Looking down) ... Say, did you order hot dogs or Funnel Cakes?
(Customer): I ordered funnel cakes.
(Curly): Well then, I just cut off my fingers! Woo-woo-woo-woo-woo-woooooo! Hey, Moe!! Hey Larry!!
