Shakespearean actor: The type of actor Moe originally was. Moe caught the acting bug early and did a little stage work in school, but at 15, he dropped out entirely, eventually working his way to Mississippi and joining and acting troupe on a riverboat called the Sunflower. He worked there for two seasons, performing various popular shows and selected works from Shakespeare. He later worked as a Shakespearean actor with a company in western PA.
1940: The year Adolf Hitler considered The Three Stooges’ popularity a threat to the credibility of the Third Reich. A Three Stooges movie called You Nazty Spy, was a scathing parody of Hitler and his fascist regime, and it angered Hitler. The movie was made even though the Stooges’ management told them they shouldn’t ruffle Nazi feathers. It was the first Hollywood film that openly satirized Hitler and Germany.
Train: The only transportation The Three Stooges would take. Shemp had a phobia of water, planes, and boats, so there weren’t many other options to choose from.
Slaps: Something Moe never heard. The sounds for his slaps weren’t added until the filming ended.
