Michael Peyser on

The Three Stooges Meet Hercules

Released 1962
Distributor Columbia

This threadbare but well received  vehicle has the boys (with Joe DeRita replacing Shemp, Joe Besser  and Curly) going back in time to goof on Hercules,  newly popularized by  the onslaught of spear-and-sandal imports  that followed the late ’50s commercial smash  of the Steve Reeves original.
