We’ve been waiting a long time, but it’s finally here! The Three Stooges movie opens tomorrow (Friday)!!  Everybody, and I mean everybody knows of The Three Stooges, but how much to you really know about them? I found a few interesting facts:


1. As a child, Moe would play hookey from school and go to the movies. He would have to get an adult to buy a ticket for him!

2. When Larry was 5, his arm was badly burned from acid used in his father’s jewelry store.

3. Shemp studied to be a plumber.

4. Curly accidentally shot himself in the ankle when he was 12. He was cleaning a rifle. Moe (his older brother) actually was the one to rush him to the hospital.

5. The Three Stooges always traveled by by train because Shemp had a phobia of  water, planes and boats!

6. Over the years The Three Stooges consisted Moe Howard, Larry Fine, Curly Howard, Shemp Howard, Joe Besser and Joe DeRita.

The trailer looks good! The Three Stooges -starring Sean Hayes, Chris Diamantopoulos and Will Sasso –  opens tomorrow in Texarkana at Cinemark 14.

Take our poll below and tell us your favorite Stooge! I included Shemp to the mix because he was an original member. He left early on, then came back after his brother Curly suffered a stroke.
