Doris Houck

Doris Houck may be best known as the girl who tried to mash Shemp Howard's head in a vice in BRIDELESS GROOM in an attempt to persuade him to marry her.

 The old "Hollywoodland" sign is seen here to be missing the first letter, since replaced. Today the word "land" is no longer there.

Doris Houck at one time was reportedly engaged to cartoonist Peter Arno. She married Los Angeles Vice Squad Officer Fred Otash, who later became a private detective. Fred Otash was alleged to have been involved in a coverup of the death of Marilyn Monroe*. The THREE STOOGES FAQ fails to make any mention of that.

* Doris Houck was no longer married to Otash at that point: they were divorced in 1952.
