Abstract: Isaacs has proved that a finite group $G$ is solvable whenever there are at most three characters of pairwise distinct degrees in $\operatorname {Irr}(G)$ (Isaacs’ three character degrees theorem). In this note, using Isaacs’ result and the classification of the finite simple groups, we prove the solvability of $G$ whenever $\operatorname {Irr}(G)$ contains at most three monolithic characters of pairwise distinct degrees. §2 contains some additional results about monolithic characters.
