    The Three Stooges in Busy Buddies (Columbia, 1944). Folded, Very Fine-. One Sheet (27" X 41").
    This is a first time offer from Heritage for this rare Three Stooges one sheet poster. Curly, Moe and Larry are the owners of a short-order restaurant who quickly go into debt. These posters for the shorts starring Jerome "Curly" Howard, before his debilitating stroke in 1947, are considered the best of the Stooges material. We cannot find another example of this poster coming to auction and suggest for the completest Stooge collector, this may be the missing one sheet! The poster has fold wear with some separation, light smudging around the borders, small tears, and a minor stain on the border.

    Estimate: $4,000 - $8,000.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
