Stooges Wiki

Myrt and Marge is a 1933 Universal feature film starring Myrtle Vail and Donna Damerel. Also starring Ted Healy and his Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Curly Howard) and Bonnie Bonnell. It is a film adaptation of the popular 1930s radio serial.


Myrt Spear's (Myrtle Vail) touring vaudeville revue is full of talent and bound for Broadway, but low on funds. Conniving and lecherous producer Mr. Jackson (Thomas Jackson) helps the show so he can romance the young star, Marge Minter (Donna Damerel). Myrt, and Marge's boyfriend Eddie Hanley (Eddie Foy Jr.), step in to save the revue and Marge. Ted Healy, Moe, Larry and Curly are stagehands with hopes to join the show, and deal with the antics of backstage crasher Bonnie Bonnell.
