Beginning in vaudeville in the 1920s as part of an act called Ted Healy and His Stooges, the trio went on to make 190 short subjects and several feature films, one of which was even nominated for an Academy Award.
The Stooges appeared in 10 original feature length movies, more than 200 short films and more than 3,000 personal appearances on behalf of Columbia Studios.
Moe, Shemp and Curley were all natural blood brothers and grew up in Brooklyn, New York. The Horwitz brothers took the name Howard as their stage name.
March 19, 1934, Larry Fine, Curly Howard, and Moe Howard signed a contract with Columbia Pictures for a single two reel comedy for $1,000 with an option for an additional 8 two-reelers at a similar salary and officially become known as the Three Stooges.
The Three Stooges were an American vaudeville and comedy team active from the late 1920s until the late 1960s, best known for their 190 Columbia short subject films that are still syndicated on television.
