Author Information

Jim Pauley

is a recognized expert on the Three Stooges filming locations, having written articles on the subject since 2001 for the Three Stooges Journal, a publication by the Three Stooges Fan Club. Pauley has also presented on this topic at the Hollywood Heritage Museum and the Stoogeum, a Three Stooges museum in Pennsylvania. Pauley lives in Philadelphia.


“The ‘Stooges Steps,’ as seen in the 1941 ‘An Ache in Every Stake,’ has come to be known as the holy grail of Three Stooges filming locations, so what a thrill it must have been to discover it in L.A.’s Silver Lake neighborhood.”

“It’s an actual grown-up book, chock full of careful research and hundreds of black-and-white photos documenting almost every cinematic move the Stooges made from 1934 to 1958—suitable for your coffee table, so long as you’re willing to put your low-brow taste right out there for the world to see.”
Los Angeles Times

“Loaded with rarely seen photos, this one is for Stooges completists.”
New York Post

“If you are a Stooges fan, then this book is a must-have to show Hollywood’s cinematic history and the legacy of these comedic geniuses.”

“It took eleven years and several dog-eared editions of the Thomas Guide map books of Los Angeles, but Jim Pauley, a self-described lifelong Three Stooges fan, has pulled off a remarkable feat.”

“The photos are nothing short of brilliant, with stills from the Columbia Ranch, the Warner Brothers ranch, and various Southern California locales. It’s all in this beautifully rendered and covered book and makes the best gift for any Stooges fan.”
