(June 19, 1897 – May 4, 1975)

As the head stooge of the Three Stooges, Howard’s film and TV
career spanned four decades. The comedy trio was nominated
for an Academy Award for the 1934 film Men in Black.The parody
short is significant in that it was the only time that the trio would be
nominated for an Oscar.

Before fame, Howard constantly skipped school as a child to attend
local theater shows, and failed to break into Hollywood for several
years before forming the Three Stooges.
