Now here's a little something cute. This
hilarious picture of Curly Howard surfaced on Ebay a couple of years
ago. This was an actual photograph doctored as a gag gift for Curly
Howard. This photo was given to Curly's boss Jack Cohn and the President
of Columbia Pictures back in the Stooges glory days. Jack was known
as a real "hard-assed" boss. He was known as a brutally
cut-throat business man who happened to take a huge liking to the
Stooges. Gee, I wonder why?
The Stooges made Cohn, and Columbia a
ton of money back in the 30's & 40's and still do today. You'll
notice that the seller covered Curly's little baby privates as not
to offend anyone in the World's Largest Marketplace. If anyone knows
anything else about this photo, please email me with more details.
Or how about another scan of the photo showing the goods? This thing
The photo is probably dated back to around
1944 or 1945. I'm guessing based on Curly's facial appearance...
definitely the latter half of his career.
The signature reads:
"To my boss Jack
Cohn - This is the first
on our new series of shorts" - Curly Howard
