Editorial Reviews

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Laughter, the best medicine, and what better doctors September 13, 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 !!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing quality August 13, 2006
I would easily have rated this with 4 stars instead of 3 had the A/V quality been up to snuff. At first glance it looks like Columbia were feeling unusually generous when they put a record 7 shorts on this disc, but that generosity didn't extend into assembling the best possible prints. I've seen better prints of these shorts, so it's not like these were the only surviving prints around and only so much could be done given their age. All 190 Stooge shorts have been on safety stock since 1974, so there's no excuse for using such shoddy prints and for a DVD to look worse than a VHS. It's true that one can overlook lesser quality prints to a point when the films themselves are great, but again, we're not talking about films from 90 years ago that were on the brink of disintegration when they were restored. Most films from the Thirties and Forties aren't in this bad of a condition!

The shorts themselves:

'Back to the Woods' (1937) easily gets my vote for one of the worst shorts of the Curly era, right down there with the likes of 'Restless Knights' and 'Beer Barrel Polecats.' Man, this short is DULL. It isn't helped by the poor picture quality and the crackling sound in the background, kind of like the surface noise on a worn vinyl record. The pace is slow, there's not a lot of funny stuff, there's no real spark to it, it's not memorable, the musical number goes on way too long, and to top it all off there's some rather blatantly racist "humor" re the Native Americans. Knowing that that's just how they were portrayed and thought of in those days, untruthful as such a depiction was, doesn't make it any easier to watch. Ethnic humor is one thing, but this goes beyond that into racist "humor."

'Grips, Grunts, and Groans' (1937) also suffers from bad A/V quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT COLLECTION OF CURLY SHORTS January 5, 2005
This DVD is loaded with seven Stooges shorts...all of them with Curly and contains some genuine Stooges classics.

"Grips, Grunts & Groans" the Stooges become friends of pro wrestler Bustoff. Bustoff is set to fight for the title but gets drunk and then knocked out by Barbells. Curly had to impersonate him in the match.

"All the World's a Stooge" 1941 - The stooges are window washers who lose their jobs after Moe impersonates the dentist in whose office they were cleaning. On the run, they are hired by a millionaire to pose as children.

"3 Dumb Clucks" 1937 - The stooges escape from jail when they learn their father, who has just become rich, is planning to leave their mother and marry a young girl. Curly is mistaken for the stooges father (he plays both parts) and marries the girl instead.

"Three Little Pirates" 1946. The Best Curly short after 1945. The Stooges are ditched on Dead Man's Island. To escape from the governor, they disguise Curly as a Maharaja and win permission to journey to their own country to fetch presents. Contains the famous "Maha" "aha" routine of Stooges Gibberish. Classic!

"Uncivil Warbirds" 1946 - The stooges are civil war soldiers who are constantly changing uniforms to avoid the opposing armies. Eventually they decide to be loyal to the south, but remain disguised as Union soldiers. Curly is detected as a spy, but Moe and Larry prevent his execution. The least funny of all thier Civil War shorts.

"Back to the Woods" 1937 - Set in colonial times, the stooges are convicted criminals who are banished from England to the American colonies. When they arrive, they find that the colonists are starving because the local Indians won't let them on their hunting grounds.
