Welcome to Wall of Shemp's "Shemp Files." Here we will present some real world Shemp artifacts. A canceled check here, a signed photo there...whatever I can scrounge up. Enjoy! 


According to the Ebay Auction I got this picture from, these are some of Shemp's personal items the seller got directly from Shemp's Wife, Gertrude. As to the validity of this, I have no idea.


Here are some great covers of the Three Stooges Journal. Shemp, you handsome devil!

Here's how the boys were depicted in the 1999 TV Movie

about the Three Stooges. Although I did not see this movie, the likenesses are OK.


But how could anyone even attempt to come close to the originals?

Here's a canceled check that Shemp wrote to Fashion Shades Venetian Blinds company in 1954 for $13.46.
