Here’s your (not so) totally useless fact of the day:
During the 1950s, the average budget for a Three Stooges’ film was
about $16,000. This included the salaries of the three stars. In the
late 1990s, with the resurgence of interest in Moe, Larry, and Curly,
Columbia Pictures easily earned more than that with just one TV
showing of the same film in only one major U.S. city.
