Moe Howard

June 19, 1897 – May 4, 1975

Larry, Moe and Curly.

Three names that almost anyone should recognize. The Three Stooges were a huge box office draw for more than 40 years.  Their manic slapstick was the stuff of male adolescent fantasy.  They eye-gouged and “wub-wub-wub”ed into the American pop-culture landscape and became a permanent fixture…even decades after all of them left us.  At the, and I use this term very loosely, grounded center of the trio, was always Moe (born Moses Horowitz.)  He was the “brains.” He was the leader, his trademark bowl haircut always jostling with every cartoonish reaction to his compatriots.

Life as a Stooge was not easy, but Moe made it to the commendable age of 77 before succumbing to lung cancer.  From the looks of it, he was a character right up to the end.
