A Bunch of Wiseguys
If you can't throw a pie at someone's face this holiday season or drop a piano lid on their fingers, you can still work out your post-Thanksgiving, pre-Christmas hostility by watching the misadventures of Moe, Larry and Curly -- OK, Shemp, too -- at the 16th annual Three Stooges Big Screen Event! presented by the Alex Film Society. This year's theme is "Hello Pop! Stooges Family Values," and the scheduled shorts include "3 Dumb Clucks," in which they stop their dad from marrying a gold digger; "Brideless Groom," in which they help Shemp find a bride; "Three Smart Saps," in which all three get hitched; "Sock-a-Bye Baby," in which they raise an abandoned baby; and "We Want Our Mummy," in which they go to Egypt to find the mummy of King Rootin' Tootin', and which includes the first use of "Three Blind Mice" as the Stooges' theme song. A highlight for your wiseguys is a screening of Hello Pop! , a 1933 MGM Technicolor musical comedy featuring creator Ted Healy; it was lost in a studio fire in 1967 and restored this year. Alex Theater, 216 N. Brand Blvd., Glendale; Sat., Nov. 30, 2 & 8 p.m.; $12.50. (818) 243-2539, alextheatre.org.
Sat., Nov. 30, 2 & 8 p.m., 2013
