For six decades, the Three Stooges ran amuck in a riotous frenzy of eye-poking, ear-slapping, kicks, jabs, punches and frying pans to the cranium. Now Laughsmith Entertainment and A&E offer fans of the Moronic Maestros a chance to relive the Golden Age of Stoogery. Through rare recordings, exclusive interviews and outtakes of behind-the-scenes antics, "Stooges: The Men behind the Mayhem" tells the pure, uncensored Stooge story--from the early vaudeville years with Shemp and Ted Healy, through the golden years at Columbia Pictures with Curly, to the final feature films with Curly Joe DeRita, "the last Stooge." Whether you're fascinated by the unrestrained id, or just enjoy the good, clean humor of pliers applied to the nose, you'll find something to love in this in-depth look at America's most beloved madcaps The Three Stooges!

A very cleverly presented, in depth look at the Three Stooges that I would highly recommend to any fan of the stooges or old-time movie buffs. Even if you aren't a die hard fan of the stooges, the light-hearted documentary style has a nice balance of entertainment and information that keeps long time fans and stooge novices equally enthralled. The director (Gierucki) is clearly a true fan which is apparent in almost every frame of the film. I can't say enough about it, and I hope to see more documentaries from him on other old-time Hollywood Greats.
