Much More Than A Stooge: Shemp Howard by Geoff Dale
When you say The Three Stooges, most of only think of Moe, Larry, and Curly. Before and after Curly's health declined, there is another brother Howard brother, Shemp, who is just as much a part of the trio as Curly, and at one time there were all four in a short. Now author, Geoff Dale tells the whole life story of Shemp who was fortunate enough to work with John Wayne, W. C. Fields and Jimmy Stuart in a career that spanned many decades. There are also tributes by many different people in the entertainment industry, a list of films Shemp appeared in and a lot more. "Much More Than A Stooge: Shemp Howard" is one fans of the Stooges should add to their list of books about the famous comedy legends.
