  • The Three Stooges were an American vaudeville and comedy act of the early to mid–20th century, best known for their numerous Columbia short subject films which are still syndicated on television. Their hallmark was physical farce and slapstick. In films, the Stooges were commonly known by their first names of "Moe, Larry, and Curly" or "Moe, Larry, and Shemp" (among other lineups, depending on the particular film). There were a total of six stooges over the act's run, with only three active at any given time. Moe and Larry were always present during the film era throughout the ensemble's run of more than forty years. The act began as part of a mid-1920s vaudeville comedy act, billed as "Ted Healy and his Stooges", consisting of Healy, Moe Howard, his brother Shemp Howard, and Larry Fine. The four made one feature film, Soup to Nuts, before Shemp left to pursue a solo career. He was replaced by his younger brother, Jerome "Curly" Howard, in 1932. Two years later, the trio left Healy, and signed on to appear in their own short subject comedies for Columbia Pictures, now billed as "The Three Stooges". From 1934 to 1946, Moe, Larry, and Curly produced over ninety short films for Columbia. It was during this period that they were at their peak popularity. Curly suffered a debilitating stroke in May 1946, and Shemp returned, reinstating the original lineup, until his death of a heart attack in November 1955. Film actor Joe Palma was used as a temporary stand-in to complete four Shemp-era shorts under contract (the maneuver thereafter became known as the term of art "Fake Shemp"). Columbia contract player Joe Besser joined as the third Stooge for two years (1956–57), departing in 1958 to nurse his ailing wife. Columbia terminated its shorts division and released its Stooges contractual rights to the Screen Gems production studio. Screen Gems then syndicated the shorts to television, whereupon the Stooges became one of the most popular comedy acts of the early 1960s. Comic actor Joe DeRita became "Curly Joe" in 1958, replacing Besser for a new series of full-length theatrical films. With intense television exposure, the act regained momentum throughout the 1960s as popular kiddie fare, until Larry Fine's paralyzing stroke in January 1970. Fine died in 1975 after a further series of strokes. Attempts were made to revive the Stooges with longtime supporting actor Emil Sitka in Larry's role in 1970, and again in 1975, but this attempt was cut short by Moe's death in May 1975. (en)
  • The Three Stooges —llamados en Hispanoamérica Los tres chiflados— fue un grupo de actores estadounidenses, activo entre 1922 y 1970. El conjunto conoció varias formaciones, y sus integrantes principales son mejor conocidos por sus apodos que por sus nombres: Moe, Larry y Curly (Curley en algunas de las presentaciones de sus cortos), Shemp, Joe y Curly Joe. El grupo principal está formado por Moe, Larry y Curly (que a veces era reemplazado por Shemp). Se hicieron famosos por sus cortometrajes en donde cultivaron una comicidad basada en la violencia física y en el juego de apuestas. Protagonizaron 190 cortos (de aproximadamente 16 minutos cada uno) para la empresa Columbia Pictures entre 1934 y 1958, los cuales, luego del cine, pasaron a la televisión, medio que los hizo conocer a las nuevas generaciones. Los tres chiflados siguen manteniendo en muchos países una inmensa popularidad. La larga permanencia del trío en actividad (cuarenta y ocho años) se debió no solamente a su popularidad fundamentada en su humor agresivo y verbal, sino en el lamentable hecho de que, por disposiciones contractuales, los tres chiflados no fueron propietarios de su obra sino empleados a sueldo por semana. Esta circunstancia les obligó a actuar incansablemente hasta que las enfermedades, la vejez o la muerte los alejaron del cine. (es)
  • The Three Stooges waren eine US-amerikanische Komikertruppe (Markenzeichen: körperbetonter, oft brutaler Slapstick), die insbesondere durch ihre zahlreichen Kurzfilme berühmt wurde. Ab 1925 war das Trio in wechselnden Besetzungen bis 1970 aktiv. Die Version der Jahre 1934 bis 1946, bestehend aus den Brüdern Moe und Curly Howard sowie Larry Fine, bleibt die populärste. Ein weiterer wichtiger Stooge war Shemp Howard, Vorgänger und Nachfolger seines Bruders Curly. In den USA haben die Three Stooges auch heute noch einen vergleichbaren Bekanntheitsgrad und Stellenwert wie Laurel und Hardy, jedoch waren die Kritiker ihnen nie ähnlich wohlgesinnt. Im deutschsprachigen Raum sind sie weniger bekannt. (de)

  • I tre marmittoni, nell'originale inglese The Three Stooges (letteralmente traducibile come "le tre spalle"), sono stati un trio comico statunitense, composto dai personaggi Larry, Moe e Curly, che girarono il primo film nel 1930, Soup to Nuts e fino al 1970 recitarono in TV una slapstick comedy (farsa piuttosto grossolana) nonché in parodie di altri generi.

  • De Three Stooges waren een Amerikaanse komische act, vooral bekend door de ongeveer 190 korte slapstick-films die ze in de jaren dertig, veertig en vijftig maakten voor Columbia Pictures. Er zijn in totaal zes Stooges geweest, maar de vier voornaamsten waren Larry Fine (1902-1975) en de drie gebroeders Howard: Shemp (1895-1955), Moe (1897-1975) en Curly (1903-1952). De films van de Three Stooges worden gekenmerkt door nogal gewelddadige slapstick. De Stooges delen oorvijgen uit, slaan elkaar met hamers en steken met vingers in elkaars ogen. Deze handtastelijkheden worden dik aangezet met geluidseffecten. (nl)

  • The Three Stooges (no Brasil, Os Três Patetas; em Portugal, Os Três Estarolas) foi um grupo cômico norte-americano do século XX, em atividade desde 1922 até 1970, mais conhecido por seus numerosos curta-metragens. Sua comicidade era marcada pela extrema comédia pastelão e farsa física. A primeira formação do grupo consistia em Moe Howard, Larry Fine e Shemp Howard, que apareceram junto com Ted Healy no longa-metragem "Soup to Nuts" (1930), da Fox Film Corporation. Shemp retirou-se do grupo em 1932 para seguir carreira solo, e foi substituído por seu irmão mais novo Curly Howard. Esta formação do grupo apareceu com Healy em vários filmes da Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, de 1933 a 1934. Moe, Larry e Curly deixaram Healy em 1934 e se mudaram para a Columbia Pictures, onde passaram a estrelar sua clássica série de curta-metragens. Quando Curly retirou-se do grupo após sofrer um derrame cerebral, o cargo de "terceiro pateta" voltou a ser ocupado por Shemp, e posteriormente por Joe Besser. Ao todo, o grupo protagonizou 190 curta-metragens para a Columbia entre 1934 e 1958. Depois do cinema, os curtas foram exibidos na televisão, possibilitando o nascimento de uma nova geração de fãs. Com o ressurgimento da popularidade d'Os Três Patetas, Moe e Larry convidaram Joe DeRita (apelidado de "Curly-Joe") para juntar-se ao grupo. Moe, Larry e Curly-Joe estrelaram vários filmes de longa-metragem entre 1959 e 1970. (pt)
