The intersection of Echo Park, Delta and Morton avenues (aka Chicken Corner) is today best known as a hipster hot spot, where the young and bearded hold court outside the Chango Coffee House. But in 1935, there was not a soul patch in sight when beer barrels, traffic cops and cars came together in the very same intersection during the climax of a Three Stooges chase in the film short “The Three Little Beers.” If you want to see more neighborhood scenes go to the full film and fast forward to the last 2 minutes of the film. (Look for the store front Ex-Lax sign where you can now buy a soy latte). Thanks to Larry, Moe & Curly.
