Three Stooges film fest tradition continues at The Alex

November 30, 2002


"Why you..."

Those are the most dreaded words in Three Stooges movies because

they were always followed by Moe conking either Larry, Curly or Shemp

on the head or jabbing two fingers in their eyes.

While that kind of slapstick comedy is not for everyone, it's hard

not to love these four masters of madcap mania.


I used to watch them on TV after school each day, and I must

admit, it kept my brother and me from fighting, if only for that


Well, for those who want to relive the good old days or want to

see them for the first time in a movie theater, the Alex Film Society

is having its fifth annual Stooges Big Screen Event at 2 and 8 p.m.

today at The Alex Theatre in Glendale.

Five Columbia shorts will be shown. They are "Three Missing Links"

(1938), "Mr. Noisy" (1946), "How High Is Up?" (1940), "All the

World's a Stooge" (1941) and "Loco Boy Makes Good" (1942).

There will also be a Stooges routine from the feature "Dunked in

the Deep" (1949), a dubbed version of one of the Stooges "Cold War"

spy films. The excerpt will give viewers a chance to hear how the

Stooges sound in French.

The society has invited family members of the Stooges to attend,

and the Knuckleheads store will be showing selected merchandise


Tickets are $10 for the matinee, $12 for the evening screening.

Prices for children 12 and younger are $8 for the matinee, $10 for

the evening screening. Tickets can be purchased at The Alex box

office, 216 N. Brand Blvd., Glendale or by calling 243-2539.

The film society is a nonprofit community arts organization

dedicated to film preservation through exhibition at The Alex

Theatre. For the upcoming film season, check out the Web site at
