The real-life wives of The Three Stooges do not appear in this film, though the Stooges address their on-screen "wives" with the same names as their real wives. The rumor that their real-life wives appear in the film is probably because of the on-location candid pictures of the wives, Gertrude "Babe" Howard and Helen Howard appear in several books. The rumor may have also been started from incorrect information in one of those books. A picture of the Stooges and their on-screen "wives" appears in the book "The Three Stooges--The Triumphs and Tragedies of The Most Popular Comedy Team of All Time" by Jeff Forrester and Tom Forrester.

The only appeal of this film is to see the Stooges in their earliest film appearance--and to get a glimpse of the now-reviled Ted Healey. I can see why the Boys parted ways with Healey. His treatment of them comes off as brutal and mean-spirited (even by Stooge standards!) A curiosity piece.
