|When The Three Stooges first signed with Columbia Pictures, their deal was for one short. 1934's Woman Haters, done entirely in rhyme, wasn't a huge success, but the Stooges hit their stride with their second short, Punch Drunks, and began to settle into their definitive roles -- Moe as boss, Larry the middleman and Curly as their foil.|
Witness the rise of these comedy icons in this high-spirited collection containing the first 19 Columbia Pictures shorts, all of which have been remastered for the best quality picture and sound. You'll experience the eye-pokes, face slaps, hollow head knocks and knuckle cracks like you've never heard or seen them before. So go ahead, nyuck yourself out!
Includes: Woman Haters, Punch Drunks, Men in Black, Three Little Pigskins, Horses' Collars, Pop Goes the Easel, Uncivil Warriors, Pardon My Scotch, Hoi Polloi, Three Little Beers, Ants in the Pantry, Movie Maniacs, Half-Shot Shooters, Disorder in the Court, A Pain in the Pullman, False Alarms, Whoops, I'm an Indian!, and Slippery Silks!
Editor's NoteAlong with 18 other classic shorts, this comprehensive Stooges collection contains "Hoi Polloi." In this fan favorite, an erudite professor makes a bet that he can teach the boys some social graces and then invites them to a high-society party only to learn their personalities are quite infectious. Also included are "Punch Drunks," another favorite featuring Curly as a boxer with a "Pop Goes the Weasel" complex; "Woman Haters;" "Ants in the Pantry;" "Slippery Silks;" and over a dozen more.
