You were great in The Three Stooges shows. One of your funniest scenes was you jumping out of the window of a moving train. RIP

Happy Birthday Dudley. Also Happy Thanksgiving. I thought you were a riot in all of the films that you were in. You are truly a funny person, especially when you performed with The Three Stooges. May you rest in peace and may God richly bless you.
