Pictured above is a frame from Hello Pop an early two-color short that featured Ted Healy and The Three Stooges. No prints of Hello Pop exist.
Hello Pop along with other early films (the most famous being Todd Browning’s London After Midnight starring Lon Chaney) were lost forever because of a vault fire at the Culver City studio.
Hello Pop was the only film featuring The Three Stooges that no longer existed.
That is until a private film collector in Australia turned up a copy! Soon collectors worldwide will be able to see and add Hello Pop to their movie collections.
Now if someone could just find a print of London After Midnight.
Thanks and a nyuk-nyuk-nyuk to the NY Daily Post.
