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!!

Well, let's see .. we can't do an episode of Flip or Flop or Property Brothers because our boys have done that one -
we can't do an episode of MasterChef or Chopped because our boys have done that one -
we can't do an episode of Fear Factor or Survivor because our boys have done that one -
we can't do an episode of Barney and Friends or Thomas the Train because our boys have done that one (Curly Joe) -
we can't do an infomercial about a wondrous product at 3am because our boys have done that one -

AAaaahhh!!! I got it!! Gastric Bypass infomercials! (do I even need to write this one?)

Next ... Mall Kiosk Hawkers ... this little episode is titled "The Burr Under My Saddle"

(Moe): Okay numbskulls, we gotta get out in the hallway and sell! sell! sell!
(Larry): What are we selling?
(Moe): Ourselves! ... and these expensive things no one wants.
(Curly): (to a passing mall patron) Hey, lady, how'd you like to peek under my mask?
(Mall Patron): Ooooh!! (stomps off)
(Moe): Why are you wearing a mask?
(Curly): It worked for the Lone Ranger ...
(Moe): Take your lumps, Kimo Sabe ... (slap! punch!)
(Moe): You know, we would sell more of these things if you birds didn't have A-D-D ...
(Larry): A-D-D?! What's that?
(Moe): All Dumb Disorder!

Giff, you and I need to collaborate and make a pitch for an episode script for a first-run syndication comedy to C3.  But we need to make sure we have people who can act as well as the Three Stooges, not three talents hacks who have their hair done Stooge style despite clearly bearing no resemblance... I volunteer ourselves for two of the roles!  metaldams can be the "third Stooge," which means we'll kill him off in 8-15 years.

I did not miss you saying we will kill off metaldams in 8-15 years ... you MUST have him pegged as Curly or Shemp!

On second thought ... our boys, The Three Stooges, in ALL of their threesome combinations, struck that childlike, not exactly innocent, stoopnagle quality that all of us, (but mostly men) share. And that was only done by our guys. Perhaps we could do some more of those comic bonk things Norman Maurer did but in graphic novel form? .... nah, probably already thought of by C3 and I just haven't seen them yet.

Watching my grandsons play "Grand Theft Auto" on the computer does bring up the possibility of recreating a digital Moe, Larry and Curly and putting them in a movie, kinda like the digital things that are out today ... Finding Dory, Kung Fu Panda 3, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, etc.
But then it would be relegated to "Children's Movies" in the video store after it got old ... but there still may be some hope for you coming up with a screenplay that digital hollywood would buy.

Talent hacks ... hhhmmm, you know, actual "good" actors tried that once. Remember the 2000 TV movie of the Three Stooges? It starred Paul Ben-Victor as Moe, Evan Handler as Larry, and Michael Chiklis as Curly. I actually thought Michael's reenactment of Curly and the clam chowder routine was very good. The problem with THAT movie was it focused on the Three Stooges in their real life, and not necessarily on their body of work.

Besides, when the 2012 Stooge movie was in the "we're gonna make it, we promise" stage, all of us here went through nearly every actor yet born and no one was able to fill the roles of Moe, Larry and Curly, in the context of a Farrelly Brothers film of them, of course.

There needs to be a concerted effort to make a film and story line that emulates our boys perfectly, and actors who can act just like them. In THAT regard, there would not be a movie studio, production company, or free lance filmmaker on the planet wanting to waste film and pixels on such an endeavor, because only the few of us who enjoy that kind of thing would pay money to see it, so the film would become an instant box office flop.

Alright now ... Audiologists (hearing doctors) in the episode "An Earful of Mirth"

(Moe, in his german accent): Vell, seet down und I vill give you a test. (okay, my take on accent phonetic spelling comes out sounding more like Chekov on Star Trek, so bear with me)
(Curly): Whatya say? You want me to keep brown and you cut out my chest?
(Moe): No, no ... seet! Pleeze seet down!
(Curly): Seat? You want me to take a seat?
(Moe): Yes, seet!
(Curly): (picking up the chair) ... what'll I do with it?
(Moe): Seet in eet!
(Curly): I can't eat while holding a chair.
(Moe): (to Larry, the lab assistant) Peegeun Head, show theess man how to pleez seet.
(Larry): ... uh, (to Curly) whadhee say?
(Curly): He told you to put cheese on my head, and show me how to pizza.
(Larry): Oh, boy! ... A party!

This episode was inspired by my own visit to an audiologist who told me I had "typical old man hearing loss" ... so in honor of her gracious use of my condition, I dedicate this episode.

Imagined Extra Features ...
(from Rumpus in the Harem)
(Interviewer to Moe): What was it like pretending that Shemp was still alive?
Moe: It was strange, you know, that old skinflint of Columbia said that he was paying for "The Three Stooges", not "The Two Stooges".
(That would have been fun to hear from Moe's lips)

Okay, the boys are abandoned children left at a catholic school with a heavy lien on the school ... (no wait, that's already been done)

The boys are evangelical TV preachers in "When the Toll is Called Up Yonder"
Moe: Good evenings friends and welcome to our show.
Larry: Hey Moe ... what are we gonna do with all that butter when the roll is called up yonder?
Moe: Spread out! (bonk) I mean ... spread it out!
Curly: I can't see! I can't see!
Moe: We shall pray for you brother. Larry, get out your prayer cloth!
Larry: Okay (takes out an oven mitt)
Moe: That's your prayer cloth?
Larry: Sure!
Moe: Why do you have an oven mitt for a prayer cloth?
Larry: I got some hot prayers to cogitate.
Moe: Oh yeah? Cogitate this! (slap)
Curly: I still can't see!
Larry: Why can't you see?
(you know the rest)

Okay ... Motorcycle Cops ...

Moe: (to Larry, who he pulled over) Do you know why I pulled you over?
Larry: Yeah, because you let those three freaks speed by me.
Moe: NO, your right rear behind overleft cuspid molar democratic independent tailight is burned out.
Larry; Really? I thought I inspected all of my right rear behind overleft cuspid molar democratic independent lights before I left this morning.
Curly Joe: (approaching from a parade float) Let's all dance! (Chips TV show theme song)
(I know its weak, but so was Moe, Larry and Curly Joe's shtick)
