"History Personified"

Apr 8, 2016

Trivia question: who appeared in more Three Stooges shorts than any actor besides the Stooges themselves? The answer: Vernon Dent. If you've seen a Stooges film with Curly or Shemp, it's pretty likely that Vernon is in the mix as well. Phil speaks with author Bill Cassara, who wrote the only known biography of Vernon, tracing his roots from San Jose, California, to the silent film era, into the "talkies" era, and beyond. You'll learn more about the Stooges, their films, and more!
