Larry Fine - Three Stooges
Book and Handwritten Autographed Letter

Here is a rare and exciting find for the serious Three Stooges collector. In 1973 Larry Fine (and James Caron) wrote what was to be the only Stooges biography, a “Stroke of Luck”, written while they were alive. I am not sure if the fact Larry was living in the Motion Picture Country House after suffering a stroke had anything to do with the title of the book, or just an irony. The book had only two printings one in 1973 and after Larry’s death in 1976 (although the 1976 printing says 3rd printing there were only 2 printings, no 2nd printing is known to exist or is there any record of one). This is the 1976 printing and is in excellent condition. This book is very difficult to acquire as there was a very limited production.

With this collection is a scarce handwritten letter from 1973 in which Larry Fine discusses "I just wrote a book called "Stroke of Luck"". and is giving the recipient in the letter instructions on how to order the book. The letter comes with the original envelop filled out in Larry’s hand and as you can see in the photos has return address of the Motion Picture Country House and Larry has again added his name (a second autograph) above the return address. It is postdated Dec 1973. The letter also has Larry's stamp of himself at the bottom of the letter. Although Moe was a prolific writer to some of his fans (Moe had a close friendship with a handicap girl in which he wrote long personal letters about himself and his career, which we have a few for sale here on this web site), letters from Larry are quire scarce.

Originally we were going to sell these separately, however splitting this pair up would be a sin!! The combination of this incredible Larry Fine handwritten letter discussing the rare book “Stroke of Luck” and the actual original book itself, will be a most desirable find to the ultimate 3 Stooges collector. As with all of our treasures, it’s one of a kind and when it gone, it’s gone!
