Ted Healy and his Southern Gentlemen

In 1925 Vaudeville was the scene of low-brow comedy and music and one of the new comedy teams was Ted Healy and his Southern Gentlemen, who became The Three Stooges in film and television. Ted Healy was reportedly very fond of alcohol and very mean-spirited, and by 1934 he and the stooges parted ways, with Healy dying under very strange circumstances a couple of years later. The Three Stooges, with Larry Fine, Moe Howard and Shemp Howard a genre of comedy that included very extreme violent slapstick was born, and thrived until many years after the end of their careers their physical comedy was deemed to extreme for youngsters to view, lest they believe that hitting a man hard on the noggin with a cast iron skillet was a cool thing to do. But in 1947 their comedy shorts were received with belly-laughs and much mirth before the main feature in theaters across the world, and in my childhood in the 1960's they were usually a part of the Saturday morning 'targeted to kids' lineup, along with cartoons that included bombs blowing up an unfortunate wolf trying to capture a speedy road runner and other kinds of assorted violence. So you should probably not share this with today's kids . . . it is today adult humor, not fit for kiddies. Shemp is a music teacher and Larry Fine, an accomplished musician is the pianist as whacky Fanny Dinkelmeyer is trying to sing opera. Moe enters and informs Shemp that Uncle Caleb has died and left Shemp a half million dollars . . . but only if Shemp is married before 6pm, a few hours away. The mayhem begins as Shemp furtively tries to find a woman . . . any woman . . . who is willing to marry him. Pop a little bowl of white kernel popcorn with warm melted butter and enjoy the show.
