Blu-ray: The Three Stooges in Public Do-Mania

  • Sale
  • Regular price $10.00


For decades, these men broke ground in the art of the eye-poke and the face-slap, becoming arguably the most beloved and enduring comedy team of all time. Now, the Important Cinema Club Bargain Bin Classics series is pleased to bring you the ultimate public-domain Stooge experience: four classic shorts (Disorder in the Court, Malice in the Palace, Sing a Song of Six Pants, Brideless Groom), an unsold TV pilot (Jerks of All Trades), and a slew of rib-tickling ephemera spanning 40 years. Rediscover Moe, Larry, Curly, Shemp, and even Curly-Joe in the same dupey, scratchy prints you first came to love on cheap DVDs and local television. Gloriously unrestored and packed with loving extras. Only a knucklehead would pass up this limited-edition Stooge extravaganza!

ABOUT THE TRANSFERS

The Important Cinema Club Bargain-Bin Classics series is dedicated to preserving and celebrating classic cinema the way it was meant to be seen: in the bad, dupey prints that were prevalent in VHS and DVD bargain-bins in the early 2000s. The producers of this edition scoured out-of-print bargain-basement DVDs dating from the early 2000s to find just the right transfers: clear enough to be legible, but damaged enough to look like a local TV broadcast from the ‘60s.
