Three Stooges Go To War, 1 September 2010
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York

At a time in Hollywood when the movie colony was hesitant still to critique Nazi Germany even obliquely, three comedians of Jewish ancestry did a wonderful job in sending up the whole Nazi gang for a few belly laughs.

This Three Stooges short You Nazty Spy anticipated Charlie Chaplin's more famous The Great Dictator by several months. Chaplin might have gotten a few ideas from the boys, but their film was strictly slapstick without any serious message underpinning the short.

Moe makes one great Hitler and Larry and Curly aid and abet as the field marshal and propaganda minister. They do come to an end that I really wish that Hitler, Goering, and Goebbels had come.
