Favourite Curly quote - "I'm a victim of circumstance!... Nyuk! Nyuk! Nyuk!"

Curly (aka. Jerome Howard) is, and always will be, my absolute favourite member of the classic comedy troupe who were known the world over as "The Three Stooges".

When it came to being an exceptionally gifted slapstick comic, Curly was, without question, a true natural. And, when Curly was funny, boy, was he a total scream.

Through dozens of rare photos (yes, even pics of Curly with hair), as well as interviews with Curly's relatives and former work colleagues, the reader learns some very surprising things about the hidden side of Curly (who the public never saw). Amongst other things, he was often described as being a very-very serious guy.

Thoughtfully written by Joan Howard Maurer (Curly's niece and Moe's daughter), this informative, well-researched book (that goes behind-the-scenes) is guaranteed to be of some special interest to any fan of The Three Stooges. Yes. I certainly recommend this book to one and all.

Sad to say - Curly Howard (the most beloved Stooge of them all) died on January 18th, 1952, at the age of forty-eight, following a long and debilitating illness.
