In my younger days, I spent many summer afternoons watching old Three Stooges films on channel 32 in Chicago. My grandfather especially loved the stooges, so I have fond memories of watching them with him. Their films were shown on television over and over summer after summer. I imagine I have probably seen all of their 190 short subjects at some point. Well, maybe 189 of them, because I know that it wasn’t until now that I got to see their very first short subject. It is perhaps one of the most atypical stooges films, 1934’s Woman Haters.
In this film the boys play the newest members of the Woman Haters Club. The organization is against its members becoming romantically involved with any woman. After a ceremonial eye poke from the group’s leader (frequent stooges co-star Bud Jamison) the boys are in the club. There’s just one problem, eventually Larry becomes smitten with a beautiful young woman, Mary (Marjorie White), and proposes to her.
But Winthrop Christopher's distrust of women ran straight to the bone. Nicki knew she should avoid him, but she couldn't hide from the feelings he stirred in her. Could she ever teach this woman hater to love again?
