POST.GAZEI"rE, SEPTEMBER 8, 2017 PAGE 9 Recipes from the Homeland by Vita Orlando Sinopoli COPYRIGHT, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED ABOUT THIS & THAT with Daniel A. DiCenso The Stooges Completed ... Almost NONNA MARY'S LIVER AND ONION I pound calf's liver 3 tablespoons white or 1 large onion red wine 3 tablespoons olive, canola or cupflour vegetable oil Salt and pepper On a cutting board, cut up liver into one-inch portions and place in a bowl. Sprinkle flour over the liver and stir so that all portions of liver are coated with flour. Sprinkle liver with salt and pepper and set aside. Remove outer skin from onion. Cut onion in half lengthwise. Cut into %-inch strips lengthwise. Set aside in a separate bowl. Heat oil in skillet before placing liver into skillet. Stir to prevent sticking. Continue frying and stirring over medium heat until all portions of liver brown lightly. Add onion strips and stir thoroughly. Cover and fry over medium/low heat about five minutes. Check frequently to prevent sticking to skillet. Meanwhile, in a cup, add three tablespoons of water to three tablespoons of wine of choice. When onion becomes opaque, add wine and water mixture to sldllet. Stir thoroughly and cover. Allow contents to simmer slowly for a minute. Stir, cover and remove from burner. NOTE: It always amazed me at how, in such a short time, my mother-in-law Mary prepared this Liver and Onions recipe. It's easy, she would say to me. It took me a while to learn that liver does cook quickly in a hot skillet, then becomes brown over medium heat. Covering the liver portions with flour before adding to the skillet creates a delicious broth when the water and wine are added to the skillet. Like my mother-in-law, I serve this with fresh Italian bread and a green salad. Public Insurance Adjuster Since 1969.

A print of their long-thought lost short Hello Pop! was found in a private collector's garage in Australia. Most of the Stooges' shorts have survived to delight fans for decades and, though tantaliz- ing to die-hard fans, Hello Pop! was a missing piece to overlook in their body of work. It was the third of five musical shorts they would make with boss Ted Healy before breaking out the following year with their own classic shorts. Their involve- ment is less than Stooge-heads would expect but, nonethe- less, it was greeted with much fanfare. In the film, Healy plays a pro- ducer whose attempts to start a production are thwarted by a stagehand, a pestering lady, and his sons, played by the Stooges themselves. MGM decided to ilm in Tech- nicolor and use tle film as a vehicle for two m sical num- bers salvaged fromolder films. Like most shorts o:its era, the prints were dispoed of after the theatrical run, hat a copy of HelloPop! did survi, e in MGM's vault number 7 md became a casualty of the ,ault fire in 1967. By 1967, Hello Bp! was but a forgotten ehtry it the Stoog- es's canon. After parting ways with Ted Healy, the. trio made a total of 190 sha't films for The Three Stooges Columbia Pictures, surviv- ing Curly's early retirement, Shemp's sudden death, and two painfully unfunny stand-ins for Curly after that. But in 2013, Malcolm Smith, a seventy-eight year old Austra- lian film collector, was cleaning out his shed when he came across a Stooges short. '~hen I came across that one I thought, no, I~I put that aside. I suspected it could be a lost film," said Smith. Smith then checked with a colleague, who confirmed the film to be the missing piece in the works of the Three Stooges. Smith bought the 35mm nega- tive in the 1950s and it had remained in his shed ,for decadesalong With other trea- sures, such as a sound version of Hollywood Party, another rare MGM short. Paul Brennan, then head of the Australian branch of in Hello Pop! Warner Bros. Archives, shipped the film to the States observ- ing, "Across America, there are probably five million hardcore Three Stooges fans. On Nitrat- eVille or any of the websites that search for lost vintage material, there is euphoria that the sole missing Three Stooges film has been found." Brennan theorized how the only known surviving copy ended up in Australia. "They'd ship prints out here and they never needed to come back. Often they,were souvenired from the rubbish bin or the tip," he said. The discovery of Hello Pop! leaves but one film featuring the Stooges still missing, the follow- ing year's Jail Birds of Paradise which, though also not featur- ing the :Stooges prominently, does feature a sequence shot for MGM's unfinished musical extravaganza March of Time. Saint Ludmila of by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari twin sons, St. Wenceslaus and Ludmila was canonized short- Boleslaus the Cruel, the forme~ of ly after her death.

She was at first buried in the Wratislaw died in 916, leaving church of St. Michael at Tetin, the eight-year-old Wenceslaus but her remains were removed as his successor. Jealous of to the church of St. George at the influence that Ludmilla had Prague before the year 1100, over Wenceslaus, Drahomira probablyby St. Wencealaus, her is said to have persuaded two grandson. She is venerated as noblemen to murder her. Sheone of the patrons of Bohemia, is said to have been strangled and the feast of Saint Ludmila by them with her veil in the of Bohemia is celebrated on year 921. September 16t~. Saint Ludmila was born in Melnik, Bohemia, about the year 860. She was the daughter of the Sorbian prince Slavibor. Saint Ludmila was the grand- mother of Saint V~enceslaus, who is widely referred to as Good King Wenceshus. Ludmila married Duke Bo- rivoy of Bohemia, whom she followed into Christanity. They built a church near Prague and tried unsuccessfully to establish Christianity within their realm. Upon the death of Borivoy, his sons Spytihinev and Wratislaw (who married Drahomira, a pre- tended Christian who actually favored paganism) succeeded him.
