(Newser) – The Three Stooges are doing an encore, thanks to the reappearance of a long-lost film short. While cleaning out his Sydney-area shed, an Australian film collector, 78, found the negative of Hello, Pop! A US preservation company restored the 17-minute film, and it's screening in New York tonight, the Guardian reports. The 1933 movie was believed to have been destroyed in a 1967 fire in the MGM vault. Hello, Pop! tells the story of a producer whose efforts to stage a musical production are thwarted by Larry, Moe, and Curly.
