Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Episodes include All the World's a Stooge," Three Little Pirates," Uncivil War Birds," Back to the Woods," 3 Dumb Clucks" and Grips, Grunts and Groans." 1937-46/b&w/124 min/NR/fullscreen.

If you want to hear "nyuk-nyuk-nyuk" in Spanish and Portuguese as well as in English, then the DVD format is for you. The Three Stooges: All the World's a Stooge gives a generous 124 minutes of seven Curly classics in a random order: "Grips, Grunts and Groans" (1937), "The World's a Stooge" (1941), "3 Dumb Clucks" (1937), "Three Little Pirates" (1946), "Uncivil War Birds" (1946), "Back to the Woods" (1937), and "Violent Is the Word for Curly" (1938). The shorts cover some familiar territory; "Grips, Grunts and Groans" is only the Stooges' 20th short in the Columbia series, and it is practically a rewrite of "Punch Drunks," the second. Here Curly is driven wild by a perfume rather than a song and is put into a wrestling ring rather than a boxing ring. Even the backscreen projection of the crowd is the same one used in the earlier film.

"Three Little Pirates" contains the famous "Mahah, Ah Ha" routine from their vaudeville days. "Back to the Woods" is one of their relatively rare costume efforts. The highlight of "Violent Is the Word for Curly" is a pleasant little vaudeville song about the alphabet. In "Three Dumb Clucks," Curly gets to play a double role. The audio and video are generally good. The film of "Three Little Pirates" used for the transfer to DVD, however, shows a defect 10 minutes into the episode in the form of vertical lines flickering to the left of the picture, which some might find distracting. --Frank Behrens

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection of Stooge shorts June 29, 2003
All the World's a Stooge is an excellent DVD that contains several classic shorts. The DVD contains seven shorts, several of which are true classics. "Grips, Grunts, and Groans" follows the Stooges as they must replace a drunken wrestler, and while funny, not a great short. "All the World's a Stooge" is about a husband who adopts the Stooges to convince his wife not to adopt other children. "Three Dumb Clucks" has the Stooges trying to break up the engagement of their father which contains some very funny shots of Curly in a double role. "Three Little Pirates" has the classic "maha, aha" routine but the condition of the film is pretty bad. "Uncivil War Birds" has Moe and Larry joining the Union and Curly joining the Confederacy which is my favorite short on the DVD. The Three Stooges have a great rendition of "Dixie" in the short that is truly funny. "Back to the Woods" has the Stooges as prisoners sent to the colonies to help fight the Indians containing several good routines. "Violent is the Word for Curly" contains the famous Alphabet Song as well as "Super Service. This is a very good DVD that looks very good with the exception of "Three Little Pirates." A must have for Three Stooges fans!

3.0 out of 5 stars Quality, where? October 27, 2005
By Ryan
The audio and video quality on this DVD is horrendous, even when taking into account the age of these films. Stooge DVDs released later on would show far superior quality to that shown in many of the films on this disc. Grips, Grunts, and Groans is the worst here - the picture is far too dark, and the sound is far less than desirable. All The World's A Stooge is quite bad too as far as A/V. On the plus side, we do get 7 shorts, more than any other Stooge DVD. However, one of them - Violent Is The World for Curly - would be re-released on one of the colorized DVDs from 2004.

4.0 out of 5 stars 5 good shorts, 2 weak shorts November 10, 2001
This one a good DVD. "Grips, Grunts, And Groans" is in my top 5 favorite stooge shorts because it is fast-paced, manic, and Curly going crazy is hilarious! "All The World's A Stooge", "3 Dumb Clucks", "Three Little Pirates", and "Uncivil Warbirds" are great shorts too. "Back To The Woods" and "Violent Is The Word For Curly" are on the weak side. This is still a good DVD for any stooge fan. The quality on "Three Little Pirates" is not so good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laughter, the best medicine, and what better doctors September 12, 2000
For us Three Stooges' fans, this newest rerelease on DVD is a welcome and overdue treat. The quality is very good on most and always satisfactory. The 7 selections presented here are highly enjoyable, some surprising choices, and all within the boys' best years. It is interesting to note that Curly was noticably ill and a tad sluggish during the filming of "Three Little Pirates" yet he still gives a highly enjoyable performance. It is oft regarded as his last great performance with the trio, as he suffered a stroke shortly after. If you are a Stooges' fan, you don't even need to read anyone's review to convince you...I'm sure you have already ordered this DVD !!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible Picture Quality !!! August 15, 2004
I was shocked and saddened to see the film quality of the stooge film titled "three Little Pirates" on this DVD. Throughout the entire stooge film there are 5 thick white vertical lines running through the film. It was so distracting to see lines running through Curly's face, that I couldnt focus on the dialogue. DO NOT BE FOOLED by the claim that this DVD is "digitally remastered" ---it does not mean the same as "restored"

5.0 out of 5 stars The title says it all! November 16, 2004
Here in this collection we see Moe Howard,Larry Fine and Moe's brother Curly Howard as pilgrims at war with Indians in BACK TO THE WOODS. Curly filling in for a wrestler named Bustoff(Bustoff has a round jovial face like Curly) in GRIPS,GRUNTS AND GROANS. The scent of a perfume called Wild Hyacinth drives Curly crazy,thus defeating his opponent. The Stooges' father divorces their mother and becomes engaged to a young blonde beauty. After the father shaves off his graying sideburns he looks exactly like Curly(Curly played a dual role in THREE DUMB CLUCKS). In VIOLENT IS THE WORD FOR CURLY,the Stooges are gas station attendants and are mistaken for three professors scheduled to appear at a college(the real professors are the Stooges' customers). In ALL THE WORLD'S A STOOGE,the Stooges are janitors working in a dentist's office. After the trio extract a man's tooth via explosives,the man takes them in as a gift to his wife(they are "refugees"). UNCIVIL WARBIRDS was set in the 1700's during the era of the Confederate War. The Stooges,with southern accents,are engaged to three southern belles and marry them in the final scene. In THREE LITTLE PIRATES,the Stooges search for fifty pieces of gold that(the monetary value) will rescue them from an island. THREE DUMB CLUCKS was later remade as UP IN DAISY'S PENTHOUSE with Moe and Curly's brother Shemp playing the dual role of son and father(Curly died before the remake was made).

4.0 out of 5 stars Some Good Stuff March 9, 2003
This volume of classic Three Stooges comedies contains six shorts. While the quality of the shorts themselves are uneven, there are several Stooge masterpieces here.
My two favorite shorts in this collection are "3 Dumb Clucks" and "Violent is the Word For Curly," which I think are two of the funniest Stooge comedies ever made (especially "3 Dumb Clucks"). I also enjoyed "Grips, Grunts and Groans" (with Curly posing as a wrestler) and "All the World's a Stooge" (where the Stoooges pose as children).
There are two shorts in here from 1946 ("Three Little Pirates" and "Uncivil War Birds") in which Curly is lacking the manic energy that had made him so popular im the early films. "Back to the Woods" I just didn't like.
However, even the bad shorts here have some great routines in them (the Maja Aha bit from "Three Little Pirates" is a classic) and the Stooges' screen personalities are always engaging.
This DVD may look pretty scratchy, but this is the best condition you'll ever see these films in. Compared to so many public domain videotapes and TV broadcasts, the films look clear and sharp. The only real special feature is a small booklet of liner notes, although Stooge fans should find listening to the films in Portugese a good enough bonus.
