Felix Adler

Felix Adler (January 22, 1884 – March 25, 1963) was an accomplished American screenwriter whose career spanned over 30 years. He is best known for his work with the Three Stooges. Adler was born on January 22, 1884 in Chicago, Illinois. He started out as a vaudeville actor and then became a title writer for Mack Sennett in the early 1920s. Before working for the Three Stooges films, Adler wrote for Laurel and Hardy as well as Abbott and Costello. Adler was a staff writer for the Columbia Pictures Short Subject department, a position he held until its demise in 1957. A much-loved resident of Hollywood Hills, he was famously sociable, chatting with neighbors at the Beachwood Village Laundry and giving pocket money to local children. His charming storybook house became a popular stop-off for neighbors on their way to and from the Beachwood Market because he would invariably invite them in for a drink. Adler died of abdominal cancer at the Motion Picture & Television Country House and Hospital in Woodland Hills, California on March 25, 1963.
