That was certainly the case in the 1970s with surviving members of the Three Stooges comedy team. Moe Howard, Larry Fine, Curly-Joe DeRita and Joe Besser routinely corresponded with their young admirers, invited them into their homes, and forged genuine friendships. Stooges Among Us is a record of these unique relationships told in the words of the fans themselves. Also sharing their insights are Stooges' family members, colleagues and close personal friends. Leonard Maltin, the renowned film critic and historian, provides the foreword to this often candid, always affectionate tribute. Here you will gain a back-stage pass to vaudeville theatres, movie sets, television studios and even a high school auditorium which featured performances by "The Boys." You will be there for touching, personal moments, as well as hilarious antics in which life mirrors the on-screen Stooge personas. Containing never-before published photographs and interviews with the Stooges, this is an unexpected treasure that will be read and re-read by classic comedy fans of all ages....

    This was a good book on views from several people's perspective on the The Three Stooges. I for one was impacted by these actors as I grew up with them on the Slam Bang Theater. It was also educational for me on the trials and tribulation the stooges had in the motion picture industry and how they were horrible mispaid from Vaudeville to Hollywood.
