A must read! Eddie Deezen's heartfelt tribute to 'Curly' Howard! 
Deezen also previously wrote some nice things about Shemp Howard:   Recently, I've been watching a lot of Shemp Stooges shorts and I find some of them vastly underrated!  Some of the prime Shemp entries are actually the best written and produced shorts of the Stooges' massive output.  I consider it their 'noir' period where the material was darker and more adult.  Shemp often played a greasy, womanizing, hardcore alcoholic and could be downright frightening at times!  Not kiddie stuff!  Check out the definitive Sony chronological volumes of all the Stooges Columbia studio shorts that even includes the few Shemp 3-D shorts (with glasses)!  Now, it's time to delve back into the Besser years (widescreen no less!).
Shivers!  It's Shemp!
