Some of it is very clever.

This is a very interesting DVD and although it is not a part of the recently released collection it does have some rare footage and interviews.

In addition to the excellent reviews below I just wanted to ad that any duplication of material here from previous Goodtimes & Anchor Bay DVD releases is superior to the earlied versions. Genius Entertainment has taken the time to do some computer clean up.

Most noticable clean up is in the Screen Snapshots short, only the Stooges footage has been cleaned up & colorized, it jumps back to a scratchy B&W picture for all non-stooge segments. I wish they did it all one way. This could be an indication that Genius was only going to include the Stooges footage but decided to put the complete short in at the last minute. It is better to see it complete as Good Times only used the Stooges footage un-restored.

Unlike some of their other DVDs, this one is colorized or B&W only and not offered in both versions (except for Heavenly Daze) but you can always turn down the color on your TV.

First off I must say that this is worth buying for a rare short called "Heavenly Daze" which for some reason has been left off of any of the official dvds from sony and is considered a verey memorable shortwhere Shemp dies and becomes a ghost,it's presented in both color and b&w,the rest of the dvd had some very rare stuff not seen on any of the past "Goodtime" dvd's,some colorized some not,curly is only in it briefly,it's mostly larry moe and curly joe,again the latter ones from the 60's aren't colorized because they were filmd that way,now I must say that I was thrilled to see a Joe Besser interview since that time period has always been ignored,also for the most part the interviews and t.v. appearances are complete,with the exception of the danny thomas show,the bonus featues were kind of odd,basically half of it was just excerts from the "Three Stooges story" released by "Goodtimes" video,the other half of the bomus features consists of unedited interviews and commercials,which is neat to see,I suggest you buy the box set...

There was a skit with horse racing, which was colorized, but not actually the famous short. Snipits of that were interspersed with a lot of black and white footage. What got me to buy was the picture on the front, which was of their classic golfing short, one of the best they've ever done. They colorized the picture, making me think that the short would be in the program, but it wasn't. That's bait and switch, folks, and I wouldn't recommend this DVD to even the most rabid of colorization fans, for after watching this, they will feel that there is a large "SUCKER" sign that was just placed on their forehead.

I freely admit that I am big-time fan of The Three Stooges. The first time I ever saw them I was six years old, and that was in a theater seeing Larry, Moe and Shemp in a brand new film in 1954! Of course, a few years later I was introduced to Joe Besser in one of their last short subjects. Finally, in 1959 I saw Curly for the first time in the television releases of their classic films of the 1930s and 1940s. Nearly all my life I have enjoyed their comedy.

Anyway, I'll get to the point! "The Three Stooges: Extreme Rarities" is an amazing collection of tidbits the Stooge fan will enjoy. First, and foremost, we get to see a pretty good reproduction of the wonderful 1948 comedy, "Heavenly Daze." That alone is worth the price of the DVD. However, there is a lot more. Stuff about Stooge merchandise, rare TV appearances, and best of all, an incredibly candid interview with Larry Fine after Larry had suffered his stroke. Larry compares Curly and Shemp in the act and manages to praise both brothers Howard while truthfully explaining how well they worked in the act. Clearly, Larry respected Shemp's talent, but most definitely felt in awe of Curly's genius. He is not exactly disrespectful of Moe, but one gets the feeling there had been something of a rocky relationship between them over the years. Seeing and hearing Larry talk about these and other topics was wonderful. I only wish there was more than one interview. It is a shame that we don't have interviews with Curly or Shemp. To the best of my knowledge, I don't think any filmed interviews with those great comics have turned up over these many decades.

Anyway, several other reviewers went into better detail than I have about the many delightful features on this DVD.

If you're looking for the mayhem that the Stooges are famous for, you can't beat the chronological Sony releases.

But, if you're the type who like DVD extras, this is a good addition to your Stooges collection at the right price. This is an extensive gathering of Stooges TV appearances and commercials that you probably wouldn't find anywhere else. It also has several interviews, so you get to see the Stooges as themselves and not the knuckleheads they portray.

I enjoyed it enough to consider the other Legend Films Stooges releases.

.... the early part depicting the early history of the Stooges was pretty good with details and old photos. The horse bit with a few seconds of Stooges interspersed just a content-filler. Heavenly Daze must not be that rare since I was repeating dialog ("I'm convinced" and "You don't know the half of it!") before they were uttered - I saw this one when I was a kid 45 years ago. Overall only for mega-fans looking for any tidbit they might have missed.
