    Culver City, CA (April 18, 2005) - On June 28, 2005, Sony Pictures Home
    Entertainment will release
    THE THREE STOOGES MEET HERCULES on DVD for the first time. The full-length
    motion picture
    features the masters of slapstick comedy, Larry, Moe and Curly Joe,
    crashing through the time barrier
    and bringing chaos to ancient Greece. The film is a parody of the Italian
    Hercules films that were wildly
    popular at the time of its 1961 release and co-stars Quinn Redeker (Oscar®
    nominee for Best Screenplay,
    The Deer Hunter, 1978) as well as Emil Sitka, known by fans as the "Fourth
    Stooge" for his numerous
    appearances in Stooges films.

    Synopsis
    The Three Stooges hop in a time machine and are transported to the era of
    the Roman Legion in Greece.
    Dressed in sandals and togas, they become trapped on a galley ship, battle
    a cyclops, and wind up in a
    madcap chariot chase. Former professional football players and real-life
    twins, Mike and Marlin McKeever,
    are along for the ride, playing a Siamese-twin cyclops.

    Again, Sony/Columbia drag out this endless Three Stooges release schedule. So many shorts remain unavailable, and HAVE ROCKET WILL TRAVEL, arguably a much more desirable title than HERCULES, is still MIA.

    They just can't win, can they? If they released Have Rocket, Will Travel, then someone would complain and say "But where's Three Stooges meet Hercules?" And on it goes.

    Still bullocking around with labeling subtitles and scene selections as special features? Come on, not even J6P is lured by this crap anymore...

    I think HERCULES is the Stooges' best "Curly Joe" feature, and I'm looking forward to it -- and hopefully, the fact that it's B&W only is a good portent.
