So, was Larry Fine really the Keith Richards of the Three Stooges? That's just one of the weighty assertions put forth in this thoughtful bio of the world's greatest troupe of slapstick comedians. Aside from lovingly edited "greatest hits" moments, this A&E production also contains hardcore Stooge material documenting the troupe's early years (under the name Ted Healy and his Stooges), as well as detailing the ever-changing Stooge membership. The video is impressive not only for its breadth of coverage, but also for its depth. Viewers are treated to an ultra-rare glimpse of the early Stooges performing on vaudeville as well as poignant home movies of an aged Curly. But it's not all sugary praise and heart-tugging remembrance; the video points out that the Stooges appropriated much of their act from other performers and, during the early part of the career, weren't really all that popular. Overall, The Three Stooges is a compelling work that puts a touchingly human face on characters most think of as simple, pie-throwing clowns.
For four decades, the Three Stooges ran amuck in a riotous frenzy of eye-poking, ear-slapping, kicks, jabs, punches and frying pans to the cranium.Now, BIOGRAPHY offers fans of the Moronic Maestros a chance to relive the Golden Age of Stoogery. Through rare recordings, exclusive interviews, outtakes and behind-the-scenes antics, THE THREE STOOGES tells the pure, uncensored Stooge story from the early Shemp shuffles to the final days of Curly Joe, "the forgotten Stooge." Whether you're fascinated by the unrestrained id, or just enjoy the good, clean humor of pliers applied to the nose, you'll find something to love in this in-depth look at America's most beloved madcaps!
