Emil Sitka ~

The Fourth Stooge

        "The most important actor in most Stooges films, besides the Stooges themselves, was the sharp-nosed, wide-eyed Emil Sitka... His presence was such a mainstay of the operation that many thought of him as an undeclared 'fourth Stooge.'"

                                       -Moe Feinberg, Larry Fine's brother

          Although Emil did a lot of work in films, he always maintained a "day job" to pay the bills and support his seven children. And even though he got divorced in the early sixties, Emil fought for custody and raised his three youngest children as a single father. Only after the last child moved away and got married, did Emil allow himself to retire from his job with a civil engineering company.
          In 1978, Emil even got married again, to Edith Weber, a former girlfriend he had known forty years before, and the two of them settled down in the town of Camarillo just north of Los Angeles, California.
