Plot Summary

In the late 1950s, Moe Howard, the leader of the Three Stooges, is at a low point of his life with his film career apparently over, and he won't earn a dime from the impending big profits when his films are shown on television. In addition, he is being pestered by a young television executive who wants his team for a live show at his city. Amidst all this, Moe can't help but think back to the past starting from the beginning of the team's career with Ted Healy and their break from him to eventually having a successful film career in shorts. Yet that can't obscure the tragedy of Jerome "Curly" Howard's stroke and death or the death of his other brother Shemp. While he reminisces, Moe must decide whether to gamble on whether there will be a new generation of fans who will let the team to enter a new phase of their career.

Goofs Curly Howard did not suffer his career ending stroke during the filming of a scene of Half-Wits Holiday (1947). It happened while he was offstage waiting for the scene to begin. He didn't respond when called, and Moe found him with his head slumped to his chest, unable to speak. See more »
