The Three Stooges: Hey Moe! Hey Dad!

In short, The Three Stooges: Hey Moe! Hey Dad! is a documentary about the Three Stooges, focusing on Moe — which makes perfect sense since it’s created by Paul Howard, Moe’s son. There are 9 Three Stooges shorts on the 3 DVDs, with commentary by Paul — if that were all, it wouldn’t be anything spectacular. However, it also includes home movies, clips, etc. with commentary, building a coherent biography of all six of the Stooges.

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. —S. DudaRead More »Stooges: the Men Behind the Mayhem
