Where it all began.
21 January 2001 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

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!
