When the Three Stooges first signed with Columbia Pictures, their deal was for one short. 1934's WOMAN HATERS, done entirely in rhyme, wasn't a huge success, but the Stooges hit their stride with their second short, PUNCH DRUNKS, and began to settle into their definitive roels - Moe as boss, Larry the middleman and Curly as their foil. Witness the rise of these comedy icons in this high-spirited collection containing the first 10 Columbia shorts, all of which have been remastered for the best quality picture and sound. You'll experience the eye-pokes, face slaps, hollow head knocks and knuckle cracks like you've never heard or seen them before. So go ahead, nyuck yourself out!

It seems that Sony/Columbia Pictures have heard the cries of Stooge fans and finally done something to make us happy. The video transfer is just about perfect, so there isn't really anything to complain about. The sound has been dramatically improved over any previous "Three Stooges" release that I currently own and it sounds great on my home theatre system. Sure there are still some blemishes in the various shorts here and there, but nothing to stop you from enjoying this wonderful set. The opening segments as well as the shorts themselves are finally free from the age related issue's such as dirt, debris, scratches, lines and sound hissing that used to plague these incredible shorts.
This is hopefully the start of something great for "Three Stooges" fans and I can't wait for the second volume to be released. There isn't any bonus material included in this set, but the overall quality of the shorts is what really matters and" Three Stooges" fans are in for a real treat with volume one.Read more ›
Audio/video remastered to perfection, I have never seen these in such good condition.
Chronological order, it is facinating to watch how they develop their characters and skills over time.
This is a delight to watch!! After seeing Volume 1, immediately ordered Volume 2 and it only gets better. All Stooge fans should be adding these excellent sets to their collection!
comics! But it wasnt always that way. In the early 30's many stage and vaudeville actors wanted to make ot in pictures, and talking became important since sound really changed the way movies were made, and this trio like many hopefuls went knocking on doors. These jewish brothers I believe, horwitz was that their name?, actually managed to sign a contract. Then they were called into Columbia, a small fledgling studio trying to stay above water with the one and only Harry Cohn. He was an original, and he had an interest in literary forms and screenwriting, was a consummate artist in many ways, but few, especially the up and coming and well known stars and directors liked him..but during his tenure at columbia some very good movies were made and he had talent in putting together movies, and getting them marketed(which wasnt easy since he had a small studio..and unlike the other studios owned no movie houses so he had to use his ingenuity to get his films viewed across america). His films gained an international reputation and he added his own personal stamp on hollywood. He wanted to start up a two reeler movie business, which were short films but he needed a popular act as a draw. The stooges were already signed elsewhere but were called to see him, known colorfully as boss. After talking to him, and he was usually short and to the point, he said though your signed elsewhere you were for me, Ill get you out of your other contract..and the very popular two reeler business began at columbia.Read more ›
