Actually, more young women and girls are into the Stooges than ever before, especially college-age women. I am a regular on www.threestooges.net, and have observed this trend. I get especially irked when newspapers/TV do items on the Stooges, and seem to always put the "women don't like the Stooges" bit in their article/piece. That may have been the case back in the 1950's and 1960's, when mom

I didn't know that!!! STAGE DOOR CANTEEN has always been my favorite of the 'Canteen' films. M-J

  5. I can't wait to see some of these bands! Quite a collection of musical history...
  6. > {quote:title=markbeckuaf wrote:}{quote} > The boys are back in town!!! Catch their funny flick, MUMMY'S BOYS (1936), late night Friday, or early Saturday (depending how you look at it), 12:45AM EST!!! Nov 21! Thanks TCM!!! You rock! I am anxiously awaiting my chance to see this for the first time! I just love Wheeler and Woolsey! They're cheesy and sometimes downright filthy! Plus, they sing and dance!
  7. I started to watch this show at my Mom's, and saw Clint's daughter and them talking. I thought about the nepotism part and thought "how cheap", and took off for the drive back home. I was turned off in the first three minutes, and I have heard from 3 different people (plus those in the group) how great it was. I set a reminder for when it is on next, which is next Wednesday. My favorite Mercer song is "And the Angels Sing", and I love the version done by the Glenn Miller Orchestra. My second favorite version of that song is on the carousel at Kennywood Park in Pittsburgh!
  8. Rich, your knowledge and generosity are astonishing. I'm sure you made Ugaarte's day! You can read about Rich's famous discovery here! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swinging_the_Alphabet
  9. Stooges fan here (hence the screen name)! I never understood Ted's appeal as a singer. I just watched 'Soup to Nuts', and I cannot stand his singing! He was a HUGE vaudeville star...HUGE! His nasal tenor voice and corny jokes must have been great on stage, but on film.....yuck! I never got Clark Gable either. That hair and those ears! I don't find Woody Allen funny, and I still haven't. I was thinking it was an age thing, but I didn't get him at 18 and I still don't at 39. I never understood Rudolph Valentino when I was young, then I was about 24 when I watched 'The Sheik
  10. Now, do you mean the soundtrack score played in the film, or the soundtrack 'album' if anybody uses that term anymore? (The two kind of became synonymous sometime in the 1970's). I can say the best example of music used in a film that I have seen is "Goodfellas". Scorsesee took the time to put period music to the correct timeline of the film. Music (next to smell) brings back memories the fastest to one's brain. I would imagine hearing "Beyond the Sea" brings back that moment in time to someone who was around in 1960 or so. The official 'soundtrack' CD to "Goodfellas" was only a fra
  11. I just discovered Wheeler & Woolsey last summer, and I cannot believe that TCM is having an entire night devoted to them! Fantastic! They must have got quite a response from the airing of "Hips, Hips, Hooray!" last month! (BTW, this is my first post here....Hi Rich!)
