  1. The photos of Moe, Larry and Curly in white ties and tails are not from Curly’s last short, Half-Wits Holiday. These are non-Columbia publicity shots of the team, when they appeared in the Monogram feature length film, Swing Parade of 1946. A few of the other Moe,Larry, Curly publicity stills are also accredited to the wrong Columbia shorts. FYI

  2. I’m looking for a photo or poster of the three stooges reading an old stock ticker. saw it years ago in a store and have seen it since. can anyone help direct me to a copy of this?

  3. I’ve been searching for a football posters of the stooges from three little pigskins. I could have sworn there was a poster with the three of them wearing football uniforms from that movie. Anyone have any info on that?
