1938 The Three Stooges Healthy Wealthy and Dumb Lobby Card
Starting Bid - $2,000, Sold For - $2,700
Lobby card to the Three Stooges 1938 short Healthy Wealthy and Dumb. The plot of this movie, the thirty-first Three Stooges short for Columbia, involved Curly winning a $50,000 first prize in a jingle contest. In typical fashion, they proceed to spend the money as fast as they can while checking into a posh suite at the "Costa Plente" hotel. While there (wrecking the place), three gold diggers hear of their newfound fortune and attempt to marry the boys, passing themselves off as three rich widows. Unfortunately, Curly finally realizes that after all of the taxes, his winnings amount to only $4.85, which quickly incites the wrath of their new wives. This scene card pictures the Stooges posing with one of the gold diggers' pet monkey. The card (14 x 10.75 inches) displays three tack holes (two along the border areas; the other just within the central image area), general edge and corner wear, and two small pieces of tape affixed along the top border on the reverse (not in repair of any tears). In Very Good to Excellent condition overall.
SOLD FOR $2,700
