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

                                         Larry The Stooge In the Middle

"The Boor" by Anton Chekhov
          During this time, Emil met and married his wife "Sunshine" Donna Driscoll and the two started a family that eventually grew to seven children. Since the small theater actors received no pay, Emil worked as a laborer by day and rehearsed and acted by night.
          Although humor and pantomime had become his forte, Emil performed many roles in dramatic plays as well as comedies, and his repertoire included "Anna Christie" by Eugene O'Neill, "The Lower Depths" by Maxim Gorky, "Depression Island" by Upton Sinclair, "Time of Your Life" by William Saroyan and "The Boor" by Anton Chekhov.
