I never cared for Joe Besser as a Stooge, but Joe DeRita was pretty good. Besser was a better fit with Abbott and Costello.
You are talking my jam KOSHN.

I used to feel the same about way about Besser, but say what you will the first three Stooges' third men, Curly - Shemp - Besser, were unique in the trio. I love DeRita, but he definitely brought the least unique style to the trio.

Should we start a Stooges' Thread

And best Abbott and Costello movies......


Oh one more thing, I own several Stooges t-shirts that I regularly receive complements about. The odd thing is my newest acquisition has yet to be mentioned. It features Curly and the saying "I try to think and nothing happens." Hilarious right?! Well I have yet to receive one mention. I realized last week that I think it is because Curly is wearing a hat in the photo. I don't think people recognize it is him.
Just a quick reply. MEET FRANKENSTEIN (1948) and HOLD THAT GHOST (1941)
are two favorites of mine. Re. MEET THE KILLER (1949), I'm not sure if I've watched that one. However, I have all four of the Abbott and Costello movie collection volumes.

Maybe we could start a vintage comedy (feature length movies, short features, and TV) thread which could include The Three Stooges, Abbott and Costello, Laurel and Hardy, the Andy Clyde short features, the short features in which Shemp starred or co-starred, etc..
