> At one point, Joe the bartender (Shemp Howard) whistles "Listen To The Mockingbird", which later was used at one time as the recurring theme song for The Three Stooges.


To be accurate, actually "Listen to the Mockingbird" was used as the Three Stooges' shorts theme tune BEFORE "The Bank Dick", not later. It was used from 1935 to 1938, and "The Bank Dick" came out in 1940. After that, and until the final Stooges short in 1959 "Three Blind Mice" was used.


Further trivia:

Columbia Pictures never gave composer Septimus Winner credit as writer of the song "Listen to the Mockingbird", in fact, didn't even use the song's original proper title. Instead they entitled it "Stooge Emblem" and gave composer credit to arranger Louis Silvers.

I figure it was because the song must have been Public Domain by then, so they didn't feel they had to give proper credit.

Concerning the pronunciation of "souse," that always bothered me. It's not an accent grave over the "e", it's an accent aigu, if you're going to pronounce it "sousay." W.C. should have known better because he was such a word-lover. (However, I can't fault him on his pronunciation of Homosossa.)


For authority, I offer Sister Julie in senior French, circa 1945.
