“Three Stooges” Shorts

March 5 “Three Stooges” Shorts Film Streams, 1340 Mike Fahey St. 4 p.m. through March 17 (Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays only) $4.50-$9, 933.0259, filmstreams.org. In 1925, few would have thought that Ted Healy’s vaudeville act would become an American institution. More than 85 years later, one can’t mention great American comedy without the “Three Stooges” being among the first names to roll off the tongue. Healy’s early stage act consisted of himself, brothers Moe and Shemp Howard, as well as Larry Fine and Fred Sanborn telling jokes and slapstick. By 1930, the group was featured in their first film and shortly thereafter, the Howard brothers and Fine split off from Healy and the rest is history. Known primarily for their 190 short films, the Stooges (with a cast that varied) also appeared in 28 features and became ultimate pop-culture icons by appearing in comic books, their own cartoon series as well as two episodes of “Scooby-Doo.” While rumors continue to swirl of a possible film coming to the silver screen, nothing beats their classic black and white short films ... best when watched with a wise guy or two.
