The Three Stooges, one of the most influential screen comedy teams of the 20th century, inspired generations of comics that succeeded them. Following their start in vaudeville, the trio began their film career in the early 1930s, reached their slapstick peak at Columbia Pictures (1934-1957) and lasted as a team well into the 1950s. After their initial retirement, they were rediscovered by an enthusiastic new generation through the medium of television, surpassing their contemporaries in lasting popularity. Volume Seven continues Sony Pictures Home Entertainment's long-running tribute to the comedic mastery of the Stooges by tracing the evolution and development of their craft in films in progressive order.
The Three Stooges Collection Volume Seven: 1952-1954 has a run time of approximately 380 minutes and is not rated. Artwork is available at http://www.SPHEPUBLICITY.COM. Visit Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on the Web at http://www.sonypictures.com.
