I bought this DVD based on what other reviewers have said. I wasn`t disappointed. I have created a home cinema in a garage with a 78 inch screen and a projector with an image throw of some 16 feet. For the screen image to be sharp and the sound quality to be good the DVD print must be very good, this print is very good. I shall be buying others in the series.

Probably the final set of great Stooges shorts 4 April 2009
By calvinnme - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This set contains:

1949
The Ghost Talks
Who Done It?
Hokus Pokus
Fuelin' Around
Malice in the Palace
Vagabond Loafers
Dunked in the Deep

1950
Punchy Cowpunchers
Hugs and Mugs
Do pey Ducks
Love at First Bite
Self-Made Maids
Three Hams on Rye
Studio Stoops
Slaphappy Sleuths
A Snitch in Time

1951

Don't Throw That Knife
Scrambled Brains
Merry Mavericks
The Tooth Will Out
Hula La La
Pest Man Wins

These shorts are from the era when the Stooges were comprised of Larry, Moe, and Shemp. These are the probably the last of the great Stooges shorts. With television encroaching upon the motion picture industry, cost cutting measures were soon underway. One such measure taken at Columbia that had already impacted MGM and other studios was the decrease in scope of the short-subject department in 1952. Stooge short veterans producer Hugh McCollum and director Edward Bernds were casualties of this action, and this left only Jules White behind as a person in the short subject department with a feel for what made the Stooges special. Shooting schedules were shortened, old Stooge shorts were cut up and recycled into sparse new material, and fans were not fooled by all of this.

Do be aware that the first six volumes of the Three Stooges will be available in June on The Three Stooges Collection, Volumes 1-6 Bundle. This really is not a great buy, but is pretty much on par with what you pay for all six volumes when they are on sale. This might be the way to go if you don't have any of the volumes yet.

The Stooges with Shemp at their height. Guaranteed laughs for comedy fans. This pre-release review only mentions the content. 8 April 2009
By Scott MacGillivray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Sony has been doing The Three Stooges proud in its continuing series of restored and remastered DVD editions. Volume 6 is highly recommended for comedy fans and a must for Stoogeheads. Many of the 1949-51 films benefit from witty scripts and direction, and are exceptionally funny.

The best shorts here were produced by Hugh McCollum and directed by Edward Bernds, who soft-pedaled the gratuitous roughhouse and allowed Shemp, Larry, and Moe to improvise freely. This brings new freshness to the standard slapstick format, and shows how professional and resourceful Howard, Fine, and Howard were. (You'll see many amusing instances when a scene is supposed to be over, but Bernds keeps the camera rolling to see what the Stooges will do.) The films also benefit from Columbia's resident stock company of the late 1940s: the lovely Christine McIntyre and Jean Willes, both equally adept at playing sincere heroines and crafty schemers; the suave Kenneth MacDonald, a definitive villain; the versatile Emil Sitka, appearing here in any number of guises; veteran comic Vernon Dent, playing the Stooges' foil with his usual authority; expressive comedian Dudley Dickerson ("This house has sho' goan crazy!"), and the superlative stuntman Jock Mahoney. It isn't easy to steal an entire film from the Stooges, but watch Mahoney in the clever PUNCHY COWPUNCHERS; you'll roar as he indulges in some athletic and hilariously clumsy slapstick.

Many of the Stooges' best-remembered scenes are included in this set: the pie fight, the spooky old houses inhabited by gangsters or mad scientists, the "plumbers" routine, "the window ledge," "the cats in the piano," "the talking suit of armor," "the feathers in the cake," the Santa Claus masquerade, the "dance instructors," the trio singing at least two variations of "Just Plain Jane," the Stooges playing themselves AND their own girlfriends... and the gags just keep on coming! There is so much quality material in these films that producer-director Jules White consulted them frequently in the 1950s, borrowing entire sequences and sometimes the complete storylines for later Stooge shorts.

Be advised that a few of the shorts will stop at nothing for a cheap laugh, thanks to the heavy hand of director Jules White. MALICE IN THE PALACE has some unfortunate stereotypical humor and a tasteless gag involving a meat cleaver. In BABY SITTERS' JITTERS White shows a toddler endangered by both the Stooges and by a loaded gun. But such lapses are rare in this set; most of the material is a joy for Stooge fans.

This DVD set should surpass Columbia's former VHS releases, which weren't as comprehensive, and occasionally were technically inferior (at least three titles derived from 16mm prints). The recent DVD volumes have been sparkling, and Volume 6 should be no exception.

The Combo of Moe, Larry, and Shemp Might have been the BEST!!! 11 May 2009
By Michael Paul Sebek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This volume contains some of my favorite Stooges shorts, especially: The Ghost Talks (with the voice of Phil Arnold as Peeping Tom), Malice in the Palace (with the Emir of Schmo), and Three Arabian Nuts (with the Genius of the Lamp). However, I don't agree that this is the best of the Shemp volumes. For me, that title easily goes to Volume 5, with the hilarity of Brideless Groom, Sing a Song of Six Pants, Squareheads of the Round Table, Fiddler's Three, Shivering Sherlocks, and A Crime on Their Hands. These six shorts are EASILY among the best the Stooges ever made. Curly was beloved and was a comedic genius in his own right; however, the more I watch the Shemp shorts, the more I'm thinking that the best combination of Stooges might have been Moe, Larry, and Shemp.

Prime Shemp Comedies! 9 April 2009
By Paul J. Mular - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Anyone who thinks Shemp was not a fine comedian in his own right is probably basing this on the weaker Shemp comedies of 1954 & 1955 (Cuckoo On A Choo Choo). And if they were not weak new stories, they were re-issuing an old short with a few minutes of new footage.

But this set will contain Shemps best work. The writers as well as the Stooges were ready to keep the series going with Shemp's different comic abilities. What really makes these work is that Shemp did not try to be Curly (like some of the other third stooge replacements), Shemp was allowed to be himself. And he added a new set of signature routines. How many of us would do a fake snore with the "Bee Bee Bee Bee" sound at the end. That was a Shemp thing, not Curly.

And since Shemp was the original third Stooge in the Ted Healy days, we are really looking at the original Three Stooges act!

I do find it interesting watching these in original release order, it is obvious that Columbia put some on the shelf while releasing others. For example: 1950's DOPEY DICKS & LOVE AT FIRST BIGHT clearly have title styles pre-dating 1949's VAGABOND LOAFERS as well as having 1949 copyright notices. They were obviously held back while VAGABOND LOAFERS, DUNKED IN THE DEEP, PUNCHY COWPUNCHERS & HUGS AND MUGS got released.

Holding back releases was not unusual and it got more common in the later 1950's. Consider that Shemp died in 1955, but his shorts continued to be released in 1956 (not counting the shorts that Joe Palma impersonated Shemp in long shots).

COME SEE "SHEMP" IN FULL STOOGE STRIDE 10 July 2009
By The Critic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
From what I can tell there are only two things missing from these 24 newly remastered shorts. One is the debris, grain, dirt and sound hissing that used to plague these wonderful shorts when they aired on television and the second is bonus material. This wonderful set contains all 24 shorts from 1949-1951 on two single sided discs packaged in slim cases. The disc artwork and packaging is fantastic to say the least, making this set even more attractive and highly collectible for any Knucklehead to own.

Thanks to Sony Studios "Three Stooges" Fans have 24 more reasons to celebrate with the recently released Three Stooges Collection, Vol. 6: 1949-1951. The 24 newly restored & remastered shorts from Sony Pictures are once again presented in chronological order completely uncut and politically incorrect and presented in Beautiful Black & White. Hip Hip Hooray!

Once again Sony Pictures have done an incredible job with the video & sound remastering and restoration with Volume six and fans should be very pleased with what they see & hear. In my opinion Stooge fans are in for a real treat with both the number of shorts included in volume six and the overall quality of the shorts themselves. In my opinion Shemp Howard is simply hilarious! It should be noted that 15 of the shorts found in this set have never been released on DVD and after viewing this set I can honestly say I don't remember seeing some of them. Sony Pictures should definitely be commended for their ongoing efforts and for finally giving "Three Stooges" fans the best possible quality shorts ever released.

The 24 digitally remastered & restored video transfers found in Volume six are simply amazing; no longer do these shorts look like they were made over 60 years ago and the newly restored soundtrack is the best I've ever heard these shorts sound. Poor Video & Sound quality from low budget DVD companies releasing "Three Stooges" material in the public domain was always a major concern for me and I wasn't sure what to expect from Sony pictures when they set out to remaster all 190 stooge shorts and put them in chronological order. I can honestly say that the poor picture & sound quality is a thing of the past and no longer a concern. The newly remastered soundtrack has breathed new life into these amazing shorts for me and I have heard words and sound effects that I never heard before. Volume six is an absolute treat and I'm glad I own it!

Volume Six Shorts Include:

(1949)
The Ghost Talks
Who Done It?
Hokus Pokus
Fuelin' Around
Malice in the Palace
Vagabond Loafers
Dunked in the Deep

(1950)
Punchy Cowpunchers
Hugs and Mugs
Dopey Dicks
Love at First Bite
Self Made Maids
Three Hams on Rye
Studio Stoops
Slaphappy Sleuths
A Snitch in Time

(1951)
Three Arabian Nuts
Baby Sitters Jitters
Don't Throw That Knife
Scrambled Brains
Merry Mavericks
The Tooth Will Out
Hula-La-La
Pest Man Wins

Sony Pictures has failed to include bonus material of any kind in these newly remastered sets so far and that's a big disappointment for me. I can only hope that loads of Bonus material will be included in the final installment after all 190 "Three Stooges" shorts have been completely restored & remastered.
