Like most boys, I love The Three Stooges. (I certainly know a few women who enjoy the antics of Moe, Larry, and Curly, but I don't think it's sexist to assert that the Stooges appeal mainly to childish men.) Just a few nights ago I flipped on to AMC and there they were! The original Stooges as Pony Express riders or some such nonsense. Just the konk-bonk-boink sound effects were enough to bring me back to childhood afternoons filled with Three Stooges shorts.

But today's Free Flick of the Day, courtesy of the SlashControl folks, is the 1962 feature The Three Stooges in Orbit, which came out in 1962 (right after The Three Stooges Meet Hercules and right before The Three Stooges Go Around the World in a Daze). OK, so it's not exactly their old-school like Soup to Nuts (1930) or Time Out for Rhythm (1941), but it's still Moe, Larry, and (ugh) Curly-Joe -- who had some skills, absolutely, but is not the true Curly.

You can enjoy the silly farce right here, and then feel free to devour a bunch of the classic Stooges shorts over at this rather impressive resource.
