Super-Hooper-Dyne Lizzies (1925, )

Del Lord Facts
Del Lord was one of the original Keystone Kops. He was renowned for his almost perfect sense of timing, which would allow him to drive a truck full of the Kops to the very edge of a precipice without tumbling over it, or maneuver cars in incredibly tight areas or between speeding trains. When Columbia producer Jules White was looking for a house director who could handle The Three Stooges, someone remarked to him one day, "Guess what? I saw Del Lord over in Culver City selling cars on a used-car lot." White immediately remembered Lord, and saw the possibilities of a director of Lord's imagination (and, more importantly, temperament) working with the Stooges. White hired him forthwith, and Lord turned out some of the best and most fondly remembered Stooges shorts.

Child: Del Lord Jr.

Is portrayed by Geoff Bartlett in The Three Stooges (2000) (TV)
