| Myrt and Marge is interesting mainly for an early film appearance of The Three Stooges
After first reading about this once-lost movie in USA Today back in the late '80s when it announced it was being broadcast on Cinemax at a time I lived with some relatives in Jacksonville, FL, who didn't have cable TV at the time, I finally watched this on YouTube which had uploaded this last year. It's interesting seeing Ted Healy and his Stooges (Moe, Larry, and Curly) in these early films they did before Healy split from them. There was actually another Stooge, or maybe "Stoogette" would be more appropriate since she was a woman named Bonnie Bonnell who appeared with those four in this picture and others during this period. She plays a backstage crasher to their stage crew. The banter between all of them can be pretty amusing especially when Ted and the others do their slaps and hitting each other on the head though it got better after Moe, Larry, and Curly went on their own and did those Columbia shorts that are still seen every day on TV. Incidentally, the "woo-woos" here are performed not by Curly but Ted. I read this was based on a radio show about the stage antics of the two title characters and there's a plot about one young woman being stalked by a producer that obviously makes this one from the pre-code era. To tell the truth, the Stooges is the only reason anyone would even want to check this out now so on that note, Myrt and Marge is worth a look for that reason. P.S. I always like to cite when a player from my favorite movie, It's a Wonderful Life, is in something else I'm reviewing so here it's J. Farrell MacDonald-the old man who castigated George Bailey for crashing his car into his old man's tree-who plays a retiring producer that leaves his show cast twisting in the wind in the early part of this movie...
