Movie Ad of the Week: The Three Stooges in New Rochelle (January 1962)

The Three Stooges (Moe, Larry, and Curly Joe) appeared at the RKO Proctor's theater in New Rochelle on Saturday, January 27, 1962 to promote the release of their third feature and biggest box-office hit, THE THREE STOOGES MEET HERCULES. Clay Cole, the popular disc jockey, songwriter, and host of the TV dance program THE CLAY COLE SHOW, not only introduced the Stooges that day, but also appeared (as himself) in the co-feature, TWIST AROUND THE CLOCK (1961).

I was there in the audience when the Three Stooges made their personal appearance at the RKO Proktors Theatre in New Rochelle. I remember Moe telling us kids NOT to poke each other in the eyes as we saw them doing. Moe showed us he didnt really poke Larry and Curly Joe in the eyes but poked them above on the forehead.
