Shemp: The Living Dead Stooge (Fake Shemp) (video)

When the great Shemp Howard died in 1955...

...the Three Stooges still owed Columbia four short films under their current contract.

Along with much stock footage, the remaining four shorts were completed...

...using Stooge regular Joe Palma as a stand-in for Shemp.

Watch the Joe Palma/Fake Shemp footage here.

Rumpus in the Harem (1956)
Hot Stuff (1956)
Commotion On the Ocean (1956)
Scheming Schemers (1956)

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it. Thanks for watching!

This must have been very difficult for Moe and Larry.
