The Three Stooges are a part of comic history. Love them or hate them, they made people laugh with their silly antics which they showcased in movies and 197 shorts. Recently, Curly's cousin, Art Drager, entertained a crowd at the Reisterstown Senior Center. Although he was only 2 when Curly died, his family has kept the stories alive. Curly Howard had two daughters, Marilyn and Janie. Marilyn lives in California while Janie lives in Westminster. Md. Curly was one of five brothers, with Moe Howard probably being the most recognizable.

Mortality is such a downer. No wonder many of us are a perpetual state of denial about death — the approach taken by a young woman given nine months to live at the start of "Linus and Alora," the recent Andrew Irons play at Single Carrot Theatre . The woman, Alora, takes it one step further than denial, actually — all the way into fantasy land. Gradually, and sometimes painfully, husband Linus agrees to join her there, confronting some tough issues of his own in the process.

HOLLYWOOD -- Flesh tone alert! Colorization is back. Along with the mullet hairstyle, Vanilla Ice and Andrew Dice Clay, colorization was among the biggest embarrassments of the 1980s and early '90s. Thanks to complaints of filmmakers and movie purists, though, colorization faded from sight like a painful memory. Until now. Columbia TriStar Home Video has unleashed two collections of vintage Three Stooges shorts -- in computerized color. Nyuk, nyuk, yuck! Why the just-add-color revival?

The Rev. Kenneth R. Heath, the pastor of Elders Baptist Church in Eldersburg, believes that one of God's greatest gifts is a sense of humor."In John 10:10 it says, 'I am come so that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly,' " he said. "When you translate the word 'abundant' in Greek, one of the definitions is 'hysterical.' "Once a year, Mr. Heath leaves them hysterical at the Three Stooges Annual Convention in Philadelphia when he dons makeup and a costume to transform himself into Moe Howard.

Paula Poundstone's life might have turned out much differently if her mother had been an early riser. "It would have ruined everything," says the comedienne with a laugh. "I was the youngest in my family," she explains by phone from her home in Santa Monica, Calif. "When the other kids went to school, my mother would make them breakfast and then she would go back to bed for an hour, so I was sort of babysat by television. " As fate (and TV scheduling) would have it, that hour in front of the tube would turn out to play a pivotal role in Poundstone's development.

It's great that 3-D technology is making a comeback at the movies. Disney's Meet the Robinsons, which opens today, is being shown in what is being called "Disney Digital 3-D" in selected theaters, affording a whole new generation of moviegoers the chance to experience the joy of watching a movie while wearing funny glasses. But it's sad that much of the fun seems to have gone out of the 3-D experience. With films from the 1950s, the Golden Age of 3-D, audiences could always count on a couple of extraordinarily cool effects, moments that may have seemed unnecessary to the movie but looked great in that third dimension.

Talk about a gimmick that won't go away. Feature films shot in 3-D -- the ones for which you wear funny glasses, with the actors always reaching out from the screen -- have been around for more than 75 years, ever since an adventure flick called Power of Love (the tale of a sea captain in California during the 1840s) was released in 1922. Since then, they've had their Golden Age (the 1950s) and even a mini-resurgence (the early 1980s). But they've never become a cinematic staple; detractors insist they're silly, and some doomsayers have claimed they'll damage your vision (like sitting too close to the television, one supposes)

HOLLYWOOD -- Who doesn't know those numskulls Moe, Larry and Curly? The Three Stooges -- whose pies in the face, punches in the gut, headlocks, insults and pratfalls have been embedded in popular culture since the 1930s -- are back. But this time the Stooges are poignant, even sad. "The idea's that comedians have broken hearts, that's in some ways the story" of the comedy team, said James Frawley, the director of "The Three Stooges," a two-hour drama to be broadcast tonightby ABC. What stamps the movie, which includes re-creations of original Stooges comedy routines, is the occasional bleakness of its portrait of the rise of some working-class boys who took their cheerful violence onto the vaudeville stage in the 1920s.

Huh?Oh, excuse me. I just finished watching "Rocket Man," and I'm afraid the experience killed so many brain cells, it's going to take a few moments to gather my thoughts.Now, where were we?Oh, yes, "Rocket Man," the newest effort from Disney to lure kids and their unsuspecting parents into theaters, make a quick buck, turn the film into a theme ride at Disney World ("Rocket Man" -- it's a natural) and feature it on one of the Disney-owned ABC's sitcoms.Yes, yes, you say, but what about the film?
