    One Fine Stooge is one fine book

    In the 1970's.. Larry Fine of 'The Three Stooges' attempted to write and publish his memiors thru an independet co. He had hoped the book would sell successfully and that his story of his career would be appreciated by his fans. Unfortuneatly. His book was improperly written by his co-author The late Mr.James Carone and what few copies of the book that Mr.Fine's fans were able to obtain and read. Showed a book that was rifed with errors and Poor Mr.Fine did not receive a penny from the sales(Mr. Carone kept the profits for himself). Angered..Larry Fine began work on another memior. But? He died in January of 1975 before he could com- plete the book. For years..many believed that Larry's second book was lost forever? Until..now? Jim Terry had found the manuscript and working with 'Three Stooges'buff Steve Cox. The pair were able to write the book that Larry Fine was unable to complete. 'One Fine Stooge'gives a more complete look at Larry's life..from his early days in Philly,Pa. to his first performing jobs as a member of a child ensemble to his performing with several comedy teams. Including one that consisted of his future wife:Mabel Hainey and his sister in law. To his meeting with Ted Healy,Moe and Shemp Howard at 'The Rainbow Gardens'Club in Chicago,Ill. in 1925. Which lead to his joining up with the famous trio. The book also looks at his home life and his pro- blems with his wife's drinking and his coping with the loss of his son:John and later his spouse. The team's work in almost every facet of show business and Larry's retirement years at The Motion Picture & TV Country Home in the 1970's. 'One Fine Stooge'also recalls the tv revival of the team's film comedies on local kids tv shows and the many kids tv shows that the boys made guest appearances on. This book is the most complete and engaging history of one of comedy's most well known and beloved teams.

    Excellent look at the Three Stooges all around.

    If you are wanting to find out about Larry's life and the Three Stooges, then it has a lot of good story's in it. People that believe the rumors that Larry gambled his money away, may be disappointed to learn the truth, that he spent most of it on family and friends. You will learn that the pain caused him by Moe's slaps and hits were nothing, compared to the pain in his personal life. If you want to know if the rumors about him running around with other women are true? Then look elsewhere, because this book doesn't even mention the name of his young girlfriend after his wife died. Many great pictures never seen before, both from Larry's own collection, Columbia's, and other friends and family of the Stooges
