3.
A film technique in which an actor who quits or dies in the middle of filming a movie is replaced by a lookalike who is shot mostly from the back. Named for Shemp Howard, a member of the Three Stooges who died of a stroke during the production of several Stooges films.
In the middle of the film "Return of the Pink Panther," Inspector Jaques Clouseau's plane crashed into the ocean, presumably to hide the fact that the actor that portrayed him, Peter Sellers, had just died. In a few shots, Inspector Clouseau is seen from the back as an actor impersonates his voice, a technique known as "shemping."
