June 16, 2008 | Press Releases

DVD Collection 323 Digitally-Restored Shorts, Arranged Chronologically, and Packaged in a Two-Disc DVD

AVAILABLE ON AUGUST 26

The classic comedy trio returns with lots of “slapschtick” when The Three Stooges Collection: 1940 – 1942 Volume Three twists, punches and pokes its way back onto DVD August 26 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. All 23 short films from those three years, chronologically organized by the original release dates, have been digitally remastered from original negatives and include such all-time fan favorites as You Natzy Spy, In The Sweet Pie and Pie, A-Plumbing We Will Go and An Ache In Every Stake. The Three Stooges Collection: 1940 – 1942 Volume Three, continuing the fan-requested roll-out of the group’s complete short film anthology, will be available for $24.96 SRP.

The Three Stooges are one of the most influential screen comedy teams of the 20th century and an inspiration to generations of comics that followed. Following their start in vaudeville, the trio’s film career began in the early 1930s, reached its slapstick peak during their tenure at Columbia Pictures (1934-1959). After their initial retirement, they were rediscovered by an enthusiastic new generation through the medium of television and have outstripped all their contemporaries in terms of lasting popularity.
