The anniversary of Shemp Howard's death in 1955 just passed (same day as JFK's).

Moe's older brother and original Stooge, Shemp's famously quick wit spawned a successful solo career. Jimmy Stewart made his screen debut (uncredited) in one of Howard's films. He was replaced in the Three Stooges act by sibling Curly. Shemp would resume Stooging after Curly's stroke force him to retire.
