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?

General Discussion / Wings (1927) on the Big Screen 5/2/2012
« on: April 29, 2012, 05:35:11 PM »
Wings is back on the big screen on May 2nd. I don't know if this is playing in other theater chains, but it's being presented in Century XD digital projections.

I'm against digital projections but I think this classified as an exception. I've never seen a silent film on the big screen so I may check this out.

General Discussion / Happy New Year!
« on: December 31, 2011, 10:22:25 PM »
I don't know if AMC is ringing in the New Year with the Stooges like they usually do but I'm having my own Stooges marathon this evening. Here's to a prosperous 2012. Happy New Year, everyone!

Questions and Answers / Self-Made Maids Observation
« on: March 07, 2011, 04:02:26 PM »
I'm watching Self-Made Maids right now (haven't seen it in years -- now I remember why!), and although no one else is credited in the short I believe the man in the lobby reading the newspaper stands in as Moe's double when Moe as the old man runs in to the cake and he, Larry, and Shemp get in to an argument.

The side of the man's face can clearly be seen and it looks like he and Moe are even wearing the same hat.

Is this the same guy or are my eyes playing tricks on me?

I unfortunately never picked up Jon Solomon's "The Complete Three Stooges" book, and while looking for a copy I couldn't help but notice that the used copies are going for $100 on Amazon. It looks like a new printing may be coming out in September.. does anyone know anything about this? Will it be an updated version? I don't want to shell out that kind of money if this is legit.

General Discussion / Farrellys Talk About Their Stooges Movie..
« on: February 28, 2011, 12:34:59 AM »
I can only hope and pray this thing never gets off the ground, but I just found this interview from two days ago.

And of course, lastly, you have Three Stooges coming up which is really exciting project so just tell people about that because I’m sure a lot of people out there want to know.

We grew up watching a lot of Three Stooges, they inspired us and those guys did their thing in the 1930s, 40s, and even today as we watch we find them very very funny. So we were hoping one day we could re-do them, bring them back and reintroduce them to a generation of kids that aren’t really familiar with them. We’ve been working on it for about 10 years, we kind of see it like it’s Dumb and Dumber-ish, it’s Dumb and Dumber and Dumberer…three of em. It’s that style of humor which we really enjoy doing and a lot of slapstick and we just think their the funniest guys going and we want to bring them back.

Also, it’s not a biopic, it’s three episodes just like you watch on TV only a little longer like 27 minutes long. Each episode we pick up where the last one left off. It takes place present day, we’ve written all new material. It’s going to be a fun movie, we feel good about it. We’re going to get a lot of shit about it because all of a sudden, this is where the critics come out and say, “How dare you remake The Three Stooges!” like Fuck You! Motherfuckers! You know, The Three Stooges were always given 2nd-class treatment their entire careers. They never did movies until the very end when they were done. They were never Laurel and Hearty, or the Marx Brothers, or Abbott and Costello. They were beneath it, they were before movies. They were looked down upon and now cute little kids don’t know who they are. We love these guys and we want to bring them back. We want to give them the A-class treatment they deserve. So anybody who criticizes, I’m coming right at them and like I’m not taking any shit.

All 7 volumes are only $10.98 at DeepDiscount.

Free Shipping on all orders. I dunno about sales tax, I think it depends on the state. If you haven't gotten some of the volumes yet now is the time.

Stooges DVD/VHS/Home Video / DANCING LADY is Now Out of Print
« on: January 18, 2010, 11:01:58 PM »
Warner has stopped pressing a bunch of movies from 1929 - 1972. These titles may end up in the Warner Archive program at some point, but keep in mind the quality of those can vary and will be significantly more expensive than if you purchase it now.

Amazon has copies used at a reasonable price. I would buy now before the price goes up.

Nitpicker's Corner / PALS AND GALS Stock Footage Goof
« on: November 12, 2009, 09:47:41 PM »
I didn't see this mentioned in the page for PALS AND GALS, but just watching it now, I found a goof given the used stock footage. It's in the same vein of the Joe short that uses footage from the Shemp short and we see his picture on the table next to the couch.

Doc Barker dies in PALS AND GALS.. they reuse the footage of Christine McIntyre singing to drown out the sound of the Stooges cutting away at the jail cell. But, as part of using that scene, they flash to Doc Barker sitting down with his boys at the table smiling as he looks at Christine. He had "died" a couple of minutes before this. His dead body is still in the bar - so how the hell is he still alive watching the performance? :D

Is this a widely known goof, or did anyone else catch it? Maybe because I haven't seen this particular remake in years it escaped my memory but I don't recall it. That's a pretty big gaffe on the Shorts Dept. back then.

Couldn't think of a better wording for the title, but I was curious as to how many of our members here are old enough to have seen any of the shorts or their theatrical films in the theaters upon their initial releases.

My dad before he passed away used to tell me stories all the time of watching the Stooges on a local station after school as part of some show geared towards kiddies that showed Laurel & Hardy, the Little Rascals, and stuff like that. He recalled Stop! Look! and Laugh! coming out and a kid in his class telling him it stunk since it a lot of it was just "that guy with his monkeys". He also remembered seeing Larry on TV once when they were in Niagara Falls when on tour (this was at some point in the early 60s I'm guessing), which to me, was pretty cool since the only two Stooges still around when I was born was Besser (I don't recall his death, though) and Curly-Joe DeRita (his I remember since it was the front page of the entertainment section of our newspaper at the time). To me with my dad being alive when Moe and Larry were still touring is pretty mind-boggling since ideally it wasn't that long ago they were still entertaining fans in person.

Anyway, I guess I'm rambling, but my guess is a lot of our members were born in the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s but I would guess most of us were exposed to the Stooges on TV at some point and not before.

General Discussion / Incorrect Quote in Rotation at Top of Site?
« on: August 06, 2009, 09:00:42 PM »
Ok I haven't seen Micro-Phonies in a few months, but isn't the quote:

Larry: Do you know Six Steps From Lucy?
Drunk Pianist: Know it? I wrote it!

I always thought that was what transcribed since that's one of my most-quoted lines. I'd hate to have it wrong if this is what it is (according to the site)...

Larry: Do you know Six Steps From Lucy?
Drunk Pianist: Play it? I wrote it!

Who's right.  ???

Events and TV / StoogeFest, Riveria Theater, N. Tonawanda NY, Sept 5
« on: August 06, 2009, 07:11:17 PM »
The Riviera Theater in North Tonawanda, NY will be holding it's annual Stooge Fest on September 5th, 2009.

Keep in mind they may not be showing original 35mm prints anymore. I've since moved 1000s of miles away, but the last one I went to in 2004 had one print and the rest were projected via DVDs (they showed the newly released at the time colorized discs which the audience gobbled up.. BLAH).

Either way I went consistently every year from the early 90s up until then. It's always a treat with lots of prizes and a bunch of enthusiastic Stooges fans. The Riviera is also a fully restored theater with a working Wurlitzer Pipe Organ. One of the hosts of the event (either Joe or Lenny - I forgot who and what their last names are) usually gets the evening started by starting to play the Stooges theme on the organ as the shorts start. It's really a hoot to see it in a historic theater like that - the same way they were shown during their original exhibition.

Now only if I could find something similar in California...

This is pretty big news. Since most of us here are classic film enthusiasts, I thought this may be a topic of interest. Basically, Warner is offering titles from their vast catalog for "Burn on Demand", that is, you request a film and they'll press it on to disc. The Home Theater Forum had a chat with reps from WB tonight, and looks like we'll be getting some silent classics soon.

Here's the link to the HTF Chat transcript

Here's the archive itself:,default,sc.html

And some links about the story:

I like to consider myself a film enthusiast, but I haven't seen much other than what's on TCM and such. I can't wait to see what they offer.

I liked this snippet:
<warnerbros> YES YES YES YES YES.  There will be shorts collections coming through Warner
Archives...and cartoons....shorts like McDoakes, Dogville, Pete Smith, etc. Eventually everything.
First shorts sets will come in early 2010.  Meanwhile, keep looking for shorts on our classic
releases throughout the year, including the new FORBIDDEN HOLLYWOOD V.3 set which streets
I'm a HUGE fan of Joe McDoakes. I'm so excited.

General Discussion / Post Your Picture!
« on: February 24, 2009, 11:39:01 PM »
Did we ever have a thread here where people posted their photos? Sounds kind of cheesy I guess, but it's always kind of neat to see what someone looks like on the other end of the monitor there. Sometimes it's way different than the image you have in your head.

I'll post one.. as soon as I don't feel like an idiot for being the only one to do it. ;D

Stooges DVD/VHS/Home Video / There's Something You Don't See Every Day
« on: August 20, 2008, 08:34:58 PM »
When's the last time you saw a VHS tape in the store? I know it's been a LONG time for me. Probably 6 or 7 years, when Best Buy began phasing them out.

I was in the 99 Cents Only store by my job today after work picking up a few things, and stumbled across a giant pile of tapes. About 200 copies of Men in Black II, but some other crap thrown in the mix. What shocked me the most was two official Sony Stooges tapes - Hoi Polloi and Dizzy Doctors (from 1996) were still brand new with the security seals intact. I figure'd they were only 99 Cents (since that's the most anything is in the store) - but they rang up 59 cents each! Sure it's VHS, but hey, two more items to add to my collection I never had.

Pretty good day overall.  ;D

Here's a pretty good deal to get geared up for Volume Three in a couple weeks..

Use coupon code C7J4L3R at checkout and get an additional 15% off.

Now, if you are a Barnes & Noble Rewards member, you can get even more off. The price as a member is $13.49, and you can get 20% off at checkout with coupon code C7J8D4W.


Also.. with B&N you can "stack" coupons.. meaning you can use more than one. If you follow this link, you get free upgraded shipping and an additional 10% off if you use any Visa card..

If you have AAA, you can use this link instead of the Visa one..

With that you can use any coupon. Since I already have both volumes I haven't tested this deal, but you can get both Volumes for a damn good price.

Stooges DVD/VHS/Home Video / Ok It Must Be My Old Age...
« on: July 25, 2008, 09:04:11 PM »
Someone posted this at DVD Talk about Volume Two.
By the way, I've noticed that the short "Playing The Ponies" is missing the scene where Curly takes the escaping dog back into the kitchen and as Curly is chopping a slab of meat, the dog is yipping, making the customers think Curly is butchering the dog.
What the hell is he talking about?

This is one thing that's plagued my mind for ages.

Notice Three Little Sew and Sews was release between the two.. yet all of the other shorts released in this time period have the same color background as Three Little Sew and Sews. What gives?

I saw this and lost it.

General Discussion / So... How Old Be Thee?
« on: March 20, 2008, 05:40:28 PM »
Looking in the Fan Club Meeting thread seeing people talk about having cars older than some members here got me wondering as to how much of a variety of ages the Stooges fan base has. I always thought I was the youngest one here, at 21, but apparently curlysdame is a bit younger than me..

So spill it! How old are ya? [pie]

General Discussion / Three Stooges Festival One Sheet on eBay
« on: February 12, 2008, 11:13:22 AM »

I love how there's an asterisk next to Curly's name, then on the bottom like some warning it says "*also Shemp or Joe Besser"

Never knew there was a one sheet for this.

Jeez, in all my years as a Stooge fan I never knew they did a PSA for arthritis.
