Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Rome has its ruins. London has a big ferris wheel and a queen. NYC has the Statue of Liberty. Boston has Old Ironsides. And L.A. has the Three Stooges! Jim Pauley's book shows you where all that history was made. L.A. wins!"  —Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller

"Can a book about the Three Stooges be both scholarly and loads of fun? Soitenly!"  —Peter Rainer, film critic and historian

"It's been over 50 years since I received that phone call to . . . work with the Three Stooges. . . . Jim Pauley has done a magnificent job discovering the filming locations of the Stooges. This book is a treasure."  —Beverly Warren Gaard, Three Stooges supporting actress

"Only a super Stooges sleuth like Jim Pauley would dare to undertake the task of investigating the Hollywood filming locations of the Three Stooges. . . . My father, Moe, as well as my uncles, Curly and Shemp, would have given a thumbs up for his courage and creativity."  —Joan Howard Maurer, daughter of Moe Howard

"Having spent some time as a youth on location at the Columbia Ranch and main lot, I can say that Jim Pauley combines great detective work, enthusiasm, and professional presentation to provide insight into what it was like to be on location, where my father and uncles performed their timeless comedy."  —Paul Howard, son of Moe Howard

"It's an actual grown-up book, chock full of careful research and hundreds of black-and-white photos documenting almost every cinematic move the Stooges made from 1934 to 1958." —Los Angeles Times (January 9, 2013)

"The photos are nothing short of brilliant, with stills from the Columbia Ranch . . . the Warner Brothers ranch, and various Southern California locales. It's all in this beautifully rendered and covered book and makes the best gift for any Stooges fan." —www.MonstersAndCritics.com

"After years of painstakingly watching (and rewatching) their shorts, interviewing historians and actors, combing through libraries for old city directories, consulting with fellow Stooges fan-club members, not to mention plenty of footwork, Pauley's obsession has culminated in this photo-packed volume." —www.BooklistOnline.com
