The Three Stooges in Hoi Polloi (Columbia, 1935). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14").
From 1934 to 1959, the Three Stooges would push the boundaries of slapstick humor in the 190 comedy shorts done for Columbia Studios. Though the lineup would undergo a number of personnel changes in those years, the most loved and admired are those made from 1935-1941 and starring Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Curly Howard. This classic short was based upon the premise of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion. A professor bets that he can turn the Stooges into gentlemen and teach them etiquette. He brings them to a society party at which the Stooges new found manners don't last very long, and the party quickly degenerates to mayhem. This wonderful title card was been restored to address a chip from the upper left and right corner within the border. There was replaced paper in the lower left corner and some airbrush work in the lower right corner. The restoration work was very well done and the card now displays very well. We have never offered this rare card before and rarely do we get cards from these early Stooges shorts. Fine+.
