Moe Howard of the Three Stooges house at 9061 Thrasher, Los Angeles, California - Mary Cummins

Moe Howard, The Three Stooges, home, house, from Wikipedia
I lived at 9170 Thrasher Avenue in Los Angeles, California since I was born in 1965. I was a huge fan of "The Three Stooges" growing up. I had seen Moe Howard at the local Safeway now called Vons on Santa Monica Blvd in West Hollywood. I also saw him at the post office on San Vicente. He had a box there and so did my Nana who raised me. My sister and I opened the door for Moe at the post office once and he gave us each a nickel. We were so excited about that. 

I had a girlfriend named Valerie Delap who lived down the street from me. We were both HUGE "Three Stooges" fans even though our parents forbid us to watch thinking we'd poke each other's eyes out with their stunts. We knew they were obviously just stunts. We were both nine years old in early 1975. I said to my girlfriend "Moe lives a few doors up. Let's get an autograph!" She said "yes!" so we walked up the street. She was shy, got too nervous and decided to hide in the bushes as I went to the door. I was also extremely shy but I forced myself because I really, really wanted to meet him. I knocked on the door, a woman (his wife) answered. I said almost shaking from fright "I'd like to say 'hello' to Moe." She said "okay, sweetie!" just as nice as anyone could say it. I waited five minutes while Moe put on his hairpiece. His wife left the door open and I saw him walking across the hallway to the bathroom with no hair when she said "there's a little girl who wants to meet you!" He came out with a dark bowl cut "Moe Howard" wig. He said "hello!" while I was nervous to the point of being catatonic, shaking but with a huge smile on my face. He made some jokes, did some slapstick and I had a great time. Then he gave me an autographed photo. I was so ecstatic but shy so I aid "thank you" then ran away to the bushes to hide with my friend while we giggled like crazy. We learned a few months later that he had died. I was very glad that I overcame my shyness so I could knock on his door and meet him one last time.

His home is a one story modern home that sits on the corner of Thrasher, Oriole and Skylark, home details below. You enter from Skylark. It was white when Moe lived there and wasn't over grown as it is now. It's never been on the MLS as far as I can tell so there are no interior photos. I don't think it had much of a view because of its location. You used to enter from an open walkway that faced Thrasher. They have since enclosed it. Below is a Google map photo. I don't know who chose this hideous color for the home.

Moses Harry Horwitz (June 19, 1897 – May 4, 1975), known professionally as Moe Howard, was an American actor and comedian best known as the de facto leader of The Three Stooges, the farce comedy team who starred in motion pictures and television for four decades. His distinctive hairstyle came about when he was a boy and cut off his curls with a pair of scissors, producing a ragged shape approximating a bowl cut.
