An Original Undated (probably 1950s) Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked Australian Daybill Movie Poster (measures approximately 13" x 30") (Learn More)

The Three Stooges are one the most loved comedy teams of all-time! They were famous for their violent slapstick comedy and their silly jokes! The Three Stooges went through several line-up changes which included Moe Howard, Curly (Jerry Howard), Larry Fine, Shemp Howard, Joe DeRita (more commonly known as Curly-Joe), and Joe Besser! Of course, any Stooge fan knows that they started in vaudeville with Moe Howard and Shemp Howard (brothers) and Larry Fine. When they switched to movies, Shemp dropped out of the act and their brother Jerry (Curly) took his place. Decades later, when Curly became sick, Shemp took his place, and later, Joe DeRita and Joe Besser took Shemp's place. It is also quite humorous that the Stooges were originally part of Ted Healy's act (billed as "Ted Healy and His Stooges"). When they started having success, they asked for a raise, and Healy fired them and replaced them with new "stooges", thinking that HE was the star, but things didn't work out the way he expected!
If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this daybill is a "stock" poster, with a blank area at the bottom where a theater could either write in the title of the specific Three Stooges movie they were showing, or could glue on or tape on a paper snipe. This meant they could re-use the poster each time they showed a different Three Stooges movie.

Condition: very good. This poster was linenbacked, and one of the following is true: either the poster had very minor defects, and was well backed, OR it had more significant defects, but they were extremely well restored, OR it had some minor defects that were not completely restored, and are somewhat noticeable. You can tell which of the above is the case for this particular poster by reading our "pre-restoration" description and also by looking at our "super-sized" image of the actual poster (we are the only major auction company we know of that gives accurate detailed pre-restoration information about linenbacked posters to our bidders, but we wish everyone did!).

The poster had minor creases along the foldlines and a diagonal crease in the top left corner. Overall, the poster was in very good to fine condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was well backed, and looks great!
