Larry: Oh!

It actually is
11 September 2006 | by (hamiton) – See all my reviews

Hold That Lion, at least the footage of Curly is from that short. Curly had passed away in 1952, and Shemp started having heart problems, so they started more and more in taking old Stooge Comedies and reusing them. That is taking large patches of an Older Shemp Comedy and then adding four or five minutes of new footage. That way it was less strain on an older Shemp, who could not longer do the physical part as well. I too love the Three, actually Six Stooges. I never don't mind Joe De Rita. There's another Curly Cameo from Mlaice in The Place that I saw in a theatre but was cut in TV Prints. Moe, Larry and Shemp rush into the kitchen, and are chased out by a very thin Curly with a handlebar mustache. I hope that they can find this footage.
