Three Stooges Script and Vintage Photograph
Original Three Stooges script for "Low Afternoon" of 1954, with a green paper cover and two vintage brass brads, accompanied by a vintage black and white studio photograph of Shemp Howard. The cover of the script reads: "Columbia Prod. No. 4216// Stooge Comedy//This script is the property of Columbia Pictures Corp. When it has served your purpose Return to Short Subjects.//Final Draft Oct. 13, 1953". There is also handwriting in pencil script: Started Oct 26 1953 // Finished Oct 28 1953". The title of "Low Afternoon" was a parody title of High Noon, a classic Western movie made in 1952. Eventually the title of the Stooges Movie became "Shot in the Frontier". The vintage black and white photograph of Shemp Howard is a studio publicity photograph. It has a stamp in red ink on the back reading "Shirley V. Martin Columbia Studios" and a paper strip attached reading "D-4034-17 Ð Shemp Howard as he appears in the Columbia comedy #4034."
