Did You Know?


The first short The Three Stooges made with Columbia, it was written and directed by Archie Gottler, who was a poet and songwriter; all of the dialogue was in rhyme, which the Stooges didn't care for, and their characters weren't very well developed. Gottler never made another Stooges short. See more »


At the end when all are elderly, Jim(Larry) comes back to rejoin the Woman Haters. When they open the door, there's no button on his lapel but after Jackie(Curly) and Tommy(Moe) greet him, he's wearing the Woman Haters pin. See more »


Mary's father: [talking to match the background music] That reminds me of a story, listen.

Mary's father: That's my other daughter there. When on her wedding day, the fella she was about to marry, tried to run away. Did you ever hear of a nerve like that? Well, I took care of that guy. In a room I locked him, then I socked him right in the eye.

Mary's father: Then I turned him over to my brother, the cop. He just picked him up. And spinned him round like a top.

Where it all began.

WOMAN HATERS was the first of the Three Stooges shorts made for Columbia Pictures and began America's (if not the cinema comedy-loving world's) love affair with the Stooges. The short is billed as "A Musical Novelty", meaning that the entire film is spoken in rhyming dialogue. In a way, this could be thought of as the first rap music video.

WOMAN HATERS begins with a meeting of the eponymous organization when three new members wait with out. "With out what?" asks the president (Bud Jamison). We then meet the trio: Tom (Moe), Jim (Larry) and Jack (Curly). They all get initiated via eyepoke and vow to say down with any poor sap who sings "My love, my life, my all" to any dame. However, later in the day, Jim makes a "horrible" confession: He is engaged to Mary (Marjorie White). At first, he tries to back out of the marriage, until Mary's father shows Jim what happened to the last man who tried to back out of a marriage to one of his daughters.

All of the Stooges trademarks are present in WOMAN HATERS: The first eyepoke (delivered by Jamison), Curly's first "Woo-woo-woo" (after Moe bites him in the toes), the exaggerated sound effects. There's even an appearance by future Oscar winner Walter Brennan. Everything that made us fall in love with the Stooges started here. Now, watch it and enjoy, ya knuckleheads!
