Ted Healy was one of the most influential comics of the 20th century
12 February 2015 | by (portsmouth,england) – See all my reviews

It always amuses me that some people are so dismissive of Healy. Usually the reason is profound ignorance of his career and the early career of his Stooges. He's the guy who created them, who came up with the routines. And the Stooges didn't dump him, as stated by the clueless reviewer above. MGM offered Healy a solo contract and he took it. At the same time he helped the Stooges start an independent career. The only dispute was who should retain the copyright for the name. Healy, as the guy who came up with it, thought it should be him and he was in the right. The Stooges never lost their love and respect for Ted, even though the law suit became acrimonious at times. Moe was utterly distraught on hearing of Healy's death (he wasn't murdered by Beery BTW, that's another exploded myth).

This short is one of my favorites, it shows just how well Healy and his Stooges worked together and the color is an added bonus. The musical clips are great too. Some people today are just incapable of appreciating the early talkies.
