HELLO POP!

Ted Healy is an aggravated producer trying to put on his stage show The Ted Healy Follies, but of course he and his stagehand (Ed Brophy) get little cooperation from Ted's three sons, the Stooges, or a tempermental musician (Henry Armetta), and backstage nuisance Bonnie. At the climax of the show the Stooges slip out onto the stage under the hoop skirt of the star vocalist, ruining the scene and the show.

In December 2012, a 35mm nitrate print was found in a private film collection in Australia. Prior to that, the only known print/negative was presumed lost in MGM's 1967 vault fire. Going into 2013, the film is undergoing a restoration funded by Warner Bros. It is hoped that screenings and/or home video will be available by the end of 2013, or early 2014.



Through research consisting of locating a copy of MGM's shooting script, and newspaper and trade paper notices and reviews, a complete story, cast and crew synopsis of HELLO POP! was published in The Three Stooges Journal # 64 (Winter 1992). An updated report appears in # 145 (Spring 2013).

Filmed in 2-strip Technicolor. The use of Technicolor was due to footage of musical numbers from earlier MGM feature films. I'm Sailing on a Sunbeam is from IT'S A GREAT LIFE (1929). The source of Moon Ballet is uncertain, possibly from the unreleased MGM revue feature THE MARCH OF TIME (1930).

I know a bit about film preservation (a lot, considering my age) and I want to know what happened to the film. Did they just lose, like it being stolen? Did it catch fire (heaven forbid. Those nitrate films easily caught fire)? Is it just beyond repair, what? If it just has become too time-worn to ever show, why don't they just fix it on a computer? It's sad when a film is lost. It shouldn't happen. That's why I'm learning about film preservation, to "do my part," you might say.
