2.0 out of 5 stars NOT LAUGHING OVER THE TRANSFER QUALITY April 6, 2003
By Nix Pix
Columbia Tristar continues to neglect their wealth of classic catalogue titles by giving us movies that we really want to see in transfers that range from disappointing to absolute rip-offs. Over the course of their tenure at Columbia, "The Three Stooges" made some 200 short subjects that rank among the funniest one reelers ever made. It's no wonder these guys are a cultural icon - they're incredibly funny.
But you won't be laughing when you see the quality of some of the transfers represented on these discs. Here's the long and short of it - in the mid 1990's somebody at Columbia decided it was time to honor the stooges with a laserdisc box set. So technicians at the studio went to their library and digitally remastered 32 short subjects and marketed them as a box set.
However, in the intervening years, DVD replaced laserdisc and, with sales of classics slumping over at Columbia, the new regime decided that they would rather just slap any old quality of transfer onto a disc, rather than take the time to repair and remaster these classic shorts. But, they still had the original 32 remastered laserdisc transfers at their disposal. So what Columbia did was to spread these 32 shorts throughout their recently released DVD series and shove in three or four truly awful transfers in between on each disc, hoping the consumer wouldn't notice, wouldn't care or wouldn't complain about the varying degrees of quality. Well - I'M COMPLAINING!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars More Nyuks For Your Bucks! May 3, 2002
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This Three Stooges box set collects 3 of their best DVDs, for a total of 19 shorts. "CURLY CLASSICS" has 6 shorts, starting with their very first one from 1934, "Woman Haters." It's also unique in that the entire short is done in rhyme. "Men In Black" features the stooges as doctors whose motto is, for duty and humanity! It's one of their best and was even nominated for an Academy Award. "Three Little Pigskins" finds the stooges mistaken for star college football players, and is notable for featuring a blonde Lucille Ball. "A Plumbing We Will Go" shows the stooges to be three of the best plumbers who ever plumbed! As with many of their shorts with Curly, it was later remade with Shemp. In "Punch Drunks" Curly pops off whenever he hears Pop Goes The Weasel and punches his way to the heavyweight boxing championship. "Micro-Phonies" is hilarious, with Curly in drag as Senorita Cucaracha, and Moe and Larry as Senor Mucho and Senor Gusto. It's my all-time favorite Curly short subject.

"All The World's A Stooge" has 7 shorts. The title short has the stooges disguised as children who are going to be adopted by a wealthy couple. "Violent Is The Word For Curly" does NOT involve him as a boxer or a wrestler. In fact, the stooges go from gas station attendants to being mistaken for visiting professors at Mildew College for Women. This short features them doing the classic song Swinging The Alphabet. In "Three Dumb Clucks" the stooges try to stop their father (played by Curly with sideburns) from marrying a young gold-digger, whose gangster friends plan to kill him for his money shortly after the wedding. This short was also redone later with Shemp to great effect.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware non-Columbia Stooges videos December 12, 1999
The four movies included in this set -- 'Disorder In The Court', 'Malice In The Palace', 'Sing A Song Of Six Pants' and 'Brideless Groom' -- are in the public domain, which means anyone with recording equipment and a copy of the movie can release their own video. Frequently, the results are of poor video/audio quality (although the movies themselves are quite good -- 'Brideless Groom' is one of the funniest Stooge comedies ever). Columbia has just released an 'official' Stooges DVD (with six of the films on one disc) -- hopefully the first of many. Stick with Columbia, and avoid these cheap knock-offs.

3.0 out of 5 stars collectors beware November 6, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I just want to give a bit of information to anyone thinking of buying this because the official product description is a bit vague.

While the 3 Stooges did make a few films in 3D in the late '40s, none of them are included here. Instead, it has 4 shorts (Disorder In the Court, Brideless Groom,Sing a Song of Six Pants, Malice In the Palace) that have all been colorized and converted to 3D. The colorization is ok, but I would say that the 3D is actually very good.

If you're looking to expand your 3D library and just want a fun disc for a cheap price, then I would definitely recommend this. If you're a collector hoping to get the Stooges original 3D shorts in HD, then you'll have to keep waiting.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Anniversary collection December 26, 2002
With the title "Three Stooges 75th Anniversary Collectors Edition," and a very nice packaging presentation, you may have expectations of a wide selection of the comedy team's best work, or even some rarities. But...
It's another collection of public domain material (this is a Madacy product), much of which has been available since the dawn of home video on many tape and disc offerings from numerous distributors. You'll find the four pd Columbia shorts, DISORDER IN THE COURT (1936), SING A SONG OF SIX PANTS (1947), BRIDELESS GROOM (1947) and MALICE IN THE PALACE (1949), plus a handful of NEW 3 STOOGES (1965) cartoons. Original material is limited to a 10 minute video of hellos & introductions from Stooge family members, taped at a 1998 convention in CA, plus some brief hosting segments by Curly-impersonator Dave Knight.
Visual quality of the shorts and cartoons is lacking, dark and non-contrasty. The cartoons have been "split up," i.e., the live-action segments are under one menu, & the animated segments under a separate menu; the return to each menu contains annoying freeze frames that cut off approx. the last second of film, rather than seamless segues. (Note: with the exception of two add'l cartoons, this DVD's content was released in 2000 as a VHS "75th Anniversary" collection, available only from Comedy 3's catalog and online store.)
From the perspective of cost, maybe you'll feel you got what you paid for. But if you're looking for a collection worthy of the label '75th Anniversary,' you will be very disappointed.
