MYRT AND MARGE

Conniving and lecherous producer Mr. Jackson helps the show so he can romance the young star, Marge. Myrt, and Marge's boyfriend Eddie Hanley, 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.



Footage from MYRT AND MARGE was used for the movie theater scene in O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU? (2000).

Costar Grace Hayes was married to Charley Foy, brother of MYRT AND MARGE producers Bryan Foy and Eddie Foy Jr.; Eddie Jr. also costarred as 'Eddie Hanley.'

Myrt and Marge probably should have both stayed on radio, because Myrt and Marge the movie doesn't have much promise, and kinda fails to live up to that meager expectation.
The movie is OK. It plays out like a random string of scenes with a barely there plot to hold them together. It doesn't have much get-go; very little energy to keep it charged. The music, dancing, and comedy are charming, but the acting is amateurish, its characters are paper-thin, and it just drags itself on by the end.
Three Stooges fans will be happy to see that Ted Healy and the boys have very juicy roles in the film, and are a constant presence throughout. They often have the best lines all to themselves…
"We sure could use a tomato like Marge in the show."
"Don't call a swell dish like that a tomato!"
The ending is fun, with a swell musical number with a pretty cool set that resembles a coiled snake. And the cast gets a great send off as the film fades into a radio studio and finishes off with Myrt and Marge singing into the microphone, harking back to the film's roots in radio programming. Too bad everything beforehand feels like half of a movie.

I finally tracked down a copy of this movie on E-Bay, its pretty hard to find!

Anyway, I had low expectations for this (the Healy era can be hit or miss with me) but I came away happy, this is a good little movie. Healy and the Stooges get alot of screen time which was great. Most of the gags and lines work, some don't but most of it I thought was funny. The Stooges esp get to shine in the closing number with some antics that would come to be typical of them when they finally left Healy behind. Some of the stuff with Bonnie trying to crash the show and Healy and the Stooges constantly having to get rid of her was good too. The main story was decent and there are some good laughs that don't come from Healy and the boys. I also liked Healy doing the "Mammy!" bit and some Curly like "Woo Woo Woo!" every time he saw Bonnie trying to sneak in. The ending was very cool and inventive with them fading to the radio studio and seeing everyone out of character, esp Healy and the Stooges.

If you are able to track down a copy of this movie, its definatly worth checking out.

Stooges get a lot of screen time, but as with most of these pre-Columbian pictures, their personalities are pretty much interchangeable--existing mainly to set up gags and get bopped around by Healy. Note that Healy does a bit of Woo-woooing, and also does the "Mammy! It's your little boy Sammy!" bit Curly later did in ALL THE WORLD'S A STOOGE. I thought the conclusion of this picture was kind of cool, with the action dissolving to a radio studio interior, and all the actors seen out of make-up as an announcer closes the "show"

Feature film version of a popular radio show, non-radio cast members Healy and the Stooges steal the show. Most of their screen time features Ted and Curly playing off each other... and the results are very funny. Too bad the rest of the film is a so-so "B" effort. But worth your while.
