Slapstick was all but pioneered by Larry, Curly and Moe, whom continue to be definitive of the genre in the golden age of Hollywood.
Up for auction was the following Three Stooges memorabilia obtained directly from the Moe Howard estate:

As the second of the Stooges films, in 2002, the film was selected by the Library of Congress as a film with cultural significance, the only of the Stooges films to earn this honor.

Howard writes in blue ink, in full, ”Dedication / I dedicate this book to my wonderful wife who had the confidence in my ability to write a book. And to my wonderful Daughter with out whose help there never would have been a book to write. God bless them Both”.
The final dedication in the book varied just slightly.
