    Description

    Three Stooges Contract Signed by Moe, Larry, and Curly Joe. A one-page standard William Morris Agency contract dated January 17, 1959, and signed on the back by Moe Howard, Larry Fine, and Joe "Curly Joe" DeRita. It was in 1959 that the Stooges found themselves back in public demand, following the syndication of the original Stooge shorts on television and their subsequent rediscovery by baby boomers. Joe Besser, who had taken the space left vacant by Shemp and Curly, was unable to re-unite with Larry and Moe due to his wife's illness. DeRita was hired to replace him, and this line-up went on to make a series of popular full-length films from 1959-65. Throughout the '60s, The Three Stooges were one of the most popular and highest-paid live acts in the country. The contract is in Very Fine condition with mild wear and torn binder holes to the top edge. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
