In 1973, Fine appeared in an infomercial promoting a book, "A Stroke of Luck", presented as his memoir. In fact, Fine later disavowed this book; the later authorized biography, "One Fine Stooge" (2006), goes into considerable detail of how the book's author/publisher took advantage of Fine in its preface.
