I admit I am a big fan of any stooge short with Shemp (Closet Shemp fan…but I love the boys and Curly! The nuymbskullery was there but he had a certain thing about him that I just found hilarious. How about you?
You a Shemp or Curly? Favorite scenes?
-Moe tries to belt Curly with a board handed to him by Larry. He instead shatters a Ming Vase. He turns and smashes Larry upside the head
“You idiot why didn’t you get me a softer board!?”
-Shemp plays a Western Dentist who cannot see and the boys have to hold down a patient for him to drill. He proceeds to drill the guys nose, Moes ear and teeth, Larry’s skull and teeth, and his own teeth.
-They boys are in a pie fight and Larry hit Moe with a pie. Moe grabs another pie and goes to throw it. Larry ducks and Moe just squats and smashes it into his face. The look on Larry’s face is perfect.
So…who out there will label themselves as a lover of true slapstick
