The Three Stooges: Hollywood Filming Locations

Media Title

The story goes that the Three Stooges spent 23 years unaware of the exact hugeness of their popularity. While stationed at Columbia Pictures during their Golden Years, studio president Harry Cohn lied to them about their box-office prowess, not only to keep their salaries down but to scare them into not leaving for literally greener pastures. Comedy shorts, despite their success, were never treated with the respect of their serious and/or long-form counterparts, and so documentation on their making is scarce. So kudos to Stooge expert Jim Pauley: his new book The Three Stooges: Hollywood Filming Locations—the result of years of obsessive detective work—IDs the areas of Los Angeles that served as Moe, Larry, Curly, Shemp et al.’s various playgrounds when they weren’t confined to the Columbia lots. For the latest Secret Cinema event, Pauley will present a live presentation of his extensive findings. His lecture will be paired with Stooges shorts—shown, of course, on film. -Matt Prigge
