(...) boy,was it definitely worth the wait ! Legend Films and co-partner 20th Century Fox has released THE THREE STOOGES IN COLOR on DVD that features the four well-known classic public domain Stooges shorts that we've seen over a hundred times by now,but never as good of quality and restoration job as they have done like in the past.I've seen and have several public domain Stooges shorts on DVD that have ranged from good ( Madacy,Columbia,Catcom ) to the not-so-good ( Platinum,Goodtimes,United American Video,Anchor Bay,etc. ) and so forth.Legend's restoration of all four shorts are perhaps the most exciting,beautiful-looking,cleanest,and pristine-looking that you're probably not going to see anywhere else and it's definitely for your money's worth ! The colorized versions are really amazing,realistic-looking,and sharp like the much-hyped Columbia DVD releases from last year as it was transferred from high-definition masters.This is perhaps the best colorization job of any film I have ever seen and certainly won't be the last.For a time,we also have had the much-rivaled colorized DVD release of only two public domain Stooges shorts from a company called Global Classics,which I also have and is of much different but watchable quality,whose colorized versions were done by the very same studio that did the official Columbia DVD'S,West Wing Studios that was released in 2004,but only Volume One has been released and not Volume Two.There were also colorized clips of some of the shorts that was used in the truly forgettable 1985 film STOOGEMANIA back when the process was still in its freshman phase.And lets not forget the colorized version of MALICE IN THE PALACE that was shown on the Alan Thicke-hosted Stooges Anniversary special back in 1991.But those previously mentioned versions didn't have the technology,nor creativity that the Legend Films and Columbia releases have and things have definitely changed since then ! Those aside,these color versions are truly amazing and very very entertaining to watch ! They are all presented uncut complete with the original Columbia opening and closing credits ( the Global Classics edition simply "letterboxed" any reference to Columbia on the main titles,if you watch that version,you'll know what I mean !) even though rival studio Fox has released this DVD.For fans looking for more,the original beautiful-looking restored shorts are also presented in their original black & white versions as well on this DVD,as with many of Legend Films' other DVD releases.The only big bonus feature that's included on this disc are the weird,but funny and entertaining introductions to each short by the 'Film Crew',in this case MST3K's Mike Nelson,a frequent and excellent collaborator on several other Legend Films DVD's,Kevin Murphy,and Bill Corbett that adds to the enjoyment of going back when the boys' films were shown on television with these types of intros ! Think the Blue Collar Comedy guys meets MST3K only without the bodily humor and PG-13 innuendos ! Plus,a whopping collection of trailers from six other Legend Films releases that are also now available on DVD ! This DVD is a great bargain and huge comparison to the Global Classics DVD incarnations and a huge bargain as well from the authorized Columbia DVD releases.Note that only two out of the four public domain shorts are now available on the Columbia Stooges DVD's: DISORDER IN THE COURT ( the COPS AND ROBBERS DVD release ) and BRIDELESS GROOM ( the DIZZY DOCTORS DVD release ). All in all,I definitely recommend this excellent DVD to any Stoogephile and I would love to see some more great films get the Legend Films treatment in the very near future ( including Abbott & Costello's AFRICA SCREAMS which is coming soon at the end of the year ) ! Throw away those crappy low-budget editions and get this definitive collection of public domain classic Stooges shorts !! LEGEND FILMS RULES !! I also recommend their version of REEFER MADNESS as well ! Visit their website at [...] for more upcoming releases and ones that are coming soon to DVD !
