Three Stooges Memorabilia
The Three Stooges were a hugely popular film comedy team of the mid-1900s, and conitnue to be today (even more so). The original trio were Moe Howard (born Harry Horwitz, 1897-1975), his brother Curly (born Jerry Horwitz, 1903-1952), and Larry Fine (born Louis Feinberg, 1902-1975). Stooge comedy consisted mainly of slapstick eye-gouging, shin-kicking, head-knocking, and the like. The group made nearly 200 comedy shorts between 1934 and 1958. The first 97 starred the original trio; after Curly suffered a stroke in 1946, he was replaced by his brother Shemp, then by Joe Besser, and finally by 'Curly Joe' De Rita.
