"One of the problems with loving the products of a bygone era is that the "bygone era" part so often becomes a limiting factor in your experience. What I mean by this is that, particularly given early incarnations of media, time often destroys or degrades the material that we do have, leaving us with an unsatisfying and incomplete lexicon to enjoy. Consider the Roman philosophers: we consider them great today, and that's with our possessing only a small fraction of their works. Imagine what we'd think of them if we had a complete image.
So too it is with the Three Stooges, true-blue American philosophers whose extant performances are an incomplete picture of their greatness, until now. The Three Stooges: Extreme Rarities is exactly as it sounds--a compilation of unique and interesting Stooge material that you've never seen before; ranging from shorts, to stage performances, to pilot episodes, to interviews, to classic commercials, etc... As the marketing literature says, this is truly a must-own for any fan of the knuckleheads.
Did I neglect to mention that all of this is in full-color? Has been re-mastered in the George-Lucas sense? So, not only does this DVD present vintage material, but it does so in a completely accessible and really unique way."
