  • THE THREE STOOGES - Columbia 400' Super 8mm sound digests

    Can someone please point me to a complete list of Super 8 Sound 400' 3 Stooges digests released by Columbia? I swear I saw the somewhere on the forum but I cannot find it. Thanks!

    Here's a couple of pages from a mid-1970s Columbia Super 8 catalogue.

      Thanks for posting that. On the right side - those listed as Jumo B/W Sound seem to be the 400' digests. I'm not sure it is complete but it is a great start.

        Hi Philip. Yes, the 'Jumbo' or 'Jumbo Giants' were 400ft reels and the 'Long' versions (the ones on the left) were 200ft reels.

        It's possible that some of the 200ft versions are extracts from the same film and could be spliced together to make a complete 400ft film but I couldn't say for sure. It's just that other film distributors used to do this, with Laurel and Hardy for instance, but I have no idea about 3 Stooges films.

          If one looks on the back of the box cover of any 400' edition, there is a list of all the titles...of course, there were others released after 1975....and today marks the passing of Moe, that same year...Shorty

              Studio Stoops (200' cut down)

              Three Dark Horses
              Creeps
              Hot Stuff

              Aside from Columbia, I know Red Fox or Thunderbird released the four PD shorts:
              Disorder In The Court (I have a TB of this)
              Brideless Groom
              Sing A Song Of Six Pants
              Malice In The Palace (I have a Red Fox of this)

              Also Derann put out a 3-D print of Pardon My Backfire, and Walton released "The Three Stooges Go West" which was a Regular 8 sound cutdown of the film "Gold Raiders". Runs about 35 minutes. And Niles released Kook's Tour both as a 400'er and as the complete 3x400 film.

              And lastly, I have seen 'homebrews' or small print batches of:
              Three Little Pigskins (by Dave's Films?)
              Boobs In Arms
              I'll Never Heil Again

              I *think* that's everything. Unless you ask Shorty, because he speaks of a mythical Dizzy Doctors put out by DCR films, but I have never seen a print of it.

                    Well the main one I want now is AN ACHE IN EVERY STAKE. Got outbid the other day on eBay on a copy of this.

                      That auction got way out of hand. Just wait and you’ll find it for about $25-$30. I got mine for $20 a few years back.

                          Yeah tell me about it. It wasn't complete and was missing titles. Bids started at 29.99. I didn't think it would go up much due to condition. Sometimes that happens when you get the right mixture of bidders wanting something at the SAME time.
