When the Three Stooges Visited Lorain - Part 1
They "sointinly" did (as Curly would say it).
Yes, it was during the last week of July 1960 that special ads began to appear in the Lorain Journal announcing the upcoming special appearance of the "Original Three Stooges."
The ad above appeared on July 29, 1960.
Sadly, Jerome "Curly" Howard – often considered the most popular Stooge – had passed away in 1952. Nevertheless, he appeared in the Palace ad (in his costume from 1942's What's the Matador?)
The day before the appearance, this ad (below) appeared on July 30, 1960 – 53 years ago today.
