Tim, you're up sir.
Married four time and I was known to be quite the ladies man. (Most people think of Curly as being a goofy looking tubby guy even though the ladies found him quite dashing and charming... And apparently he was a Ã¢â‚¬Å“suckerÃ¢â‚¬Â for them too.)
I have two brothers that were also associated with the famous partnership, but only once did I work with both of them. (When CurlyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s health failed him Shemp took back over the 3rd Stooge role. Curly had stopped by the studio while they were filming and director Jules White asked if he minded doing a cameo appearance.) Other hints I had cooked up:
- The name I was known by is a witty misnomer but you could have also called me Jerry.
- When my health failed the brother that I once replaced, replaced me for what was only planned to be temporary amount of time. (Shemp was the original Stooge. He was offered another gig and chose to leave The Stooges before they had made it big. Curly was his replacement but only AFTER he shaved his head to look the part.)
- My actÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s constant non-sibling partner was Ã¢â‚¬Å“Fine.Ã¢â‚¬Â (Larry Fine)
- My actÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s start was in Vaudeville, but the move to the silver screen was our break.
