I love the Three Stooges, especially "Curly"... but this term got lost somewhere in time... only to be resurfaced by some shitty TV sitcom later, as is with many things.

Thanks Jake999, what happened to Curly? I know the rest of them wound up as Janitors, for what was it "Universal Studios"? Horrible fate. No one ever took care of the greats, you had to save your money back then... Damned shame.

"On January 18, 1952, Jerome Howard died of a massive cerebral hemorrhage, at the age of 48, while at the Baldy View Sanitarium in San Gabriel, California. Curly was given a Jewish funeral and was laid to rest at Home of Peace Cemetery in East Los Angeles."

"Larry Fine and the Stooges were working on a new TV series entitled Kook's Tour in January, 1970, when Larry suffered a debilitating stroke that paralyzed the left side of his body. He eventually moved to the Motion Picture House, an industry retirement community in Woodland Hills, where he spent his remaining years.
Fine was confined to a wheelchair during the last five years of his life. Like Curly Howard, Fine suffered several additional strokes before his death on January 24, 1975. He was entombed in Glendale's Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in the Freedom Mausoleum, Sanctuary of Liberation."

"A lifelong smoker, Moe Howard died of lung cancer on May 4, 1975, just a month shy of his 78th birthday. He was entombed in Culver City's Hillside Memorial Park Cemetery."

That's kinda sad, Jake999...

I thought they were all Jewish, though, and kinda kept that little nugget in the closet at the time...

(I think I'm confusing them with the "Marx brothers" though... oops. I love their movies as well! "Duck Soup"!)

You think it was all those smacks to the head? They didn't appear to use "stunt doubles"... and some of that shit looked actually "painful". Why was he in the Sanitarium? Or by Sanitarium, did they mean something a world apart from what the connotation of the word inpsires today? I mean, was he at a "health retreat" kinda place?

Yeah. "Sanitarium" had a different connotation then than it does now. It used to mean more of a place to handle chronic disease, rather than those who were decreased in mental capability for whatever reason. For instance, those suffering from a contagioous disease like Tuberculosis went to a sanitarium ... a place that was sanitized... as a part of their cure.

Well, I do not necessarily condemn those who seek fortune and fame in show biz. Typical scenario: a teenager is watchin a movie or concert on tv or the internet. The actors or musicians seem to be very cool people. They have fun for a living, and they are all rich and good looking. The kid looks around at his/her/its life.
It doesn't look that appealing. A lifetime of dull, boring slavery
punctuated by debt, bad food, and a final miserable demise in a hospital somewhere with tubes sticking out of you, sucking out your life and the last penny you and your family own.

What's the alternative?

Lotto?
Vegas?
H O L L Y W O O D?

join the mob?
get a record deal?

join the army?

This desire for a better life, the will to change
is the essence of magic.

I love LA, its a city of dreamers.

NYC with all its practicality, makes me extremely ill.
