Description: Never be caught unprepared in a pie fight. Never smack just one person if you can slap three in a row. And never underestimate the value of a good poke in the eye. The Three Stooges invented the rules of comedy, but they learned the rules of show business the hard way. Signed by Columbia Pictures in 1934, they made nine short films a year until 1958, when Columbia declined to renew their yearly contract and booted these pioneering pie-throwing professionals, who'd never gotten a raise, unceremoniously off the lot. Fortunately, their career was revived when their short films began to be shown on television, but they were never paid a cent beyond what they'd originally gotten for twenty-four years of beating the hell out of one another.

From humble vaudeville origins to movie stars to grainy black-and-white television legends, the Three Stooges are comedy icons, whose enduring appeal and slapstick legacy have made them the most famous comedy troupe in the world. Michael Fleming's "The Three Stooges" is the authentic, official guide to the Stooges, the only book written with the cooperation and resources of Comedy III, the production company formed by Larry, Moe, and Curly-Joe, with access to just about every living person who worked with the Stooges, and rights to the exhaustive collection of Stooge documentation and photographs. In this copiously illustrated volume, Fleming traces the evolution of the Stooges and their shtick. Featuring rare photographs and documents, interviews with Stooge friends and families, and a complete filmography with every "woop woop" and crashed society cocktail party lovingly detailed, the book will be treasured by all Stoogedom.
