Storyline

A vaudeville show is playing, but the bottom billed act of Heely, Heely, Heely & Heely (who have the first names Ted, Larry, Curly & Moe) have just been fired because Ted has been fooling around with girls telling them he can get them into show business, which in turn always gets him into trouble. Their next job is as waiters in a restaurant that has a floor show. Since they end up not being very adept waiters which causes much havoc amongst themselves and with the customers, they may as well sit back, eat the food, watch and enjoy (sort of) the floor show and in turn take over the floor show, much to the restaurant manager's chagrin. But the havoc continues and Ted has a fitting conclusion to his problems. Written by Huggo

Beer and Pretzels was perhaps the best of the M-G-M shorts starring Ted Healy and His Stooges
30 December 2010 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

What I'm reviewing here is the second of the M-G-M shorts that starred Ted Healy and His Stooges (Moe, Larry, and Curly, natch), not to mention their female foil, Bonnie Bonnell-once again credited as "Bonny". About the latter, she was inconsistently uneven-performance wise-in the previous short Nertsery Rhymes but here is quite funny doing some of the trips and falls with the boys and later nicely begins a number that segues into three bartenders finishing it. Anyway, Healy, Howard, Fine, and Howard are fired from a vaudeville bill and manage to get hired as waiters at a nearby restaurant. If you know the Stooges, you can guess what happens but not before they do a little entertaining singing of their own. So on that note, Beer and Pretzels is very good as an early Stooge short and is thought of so highly that Moe considered it his favorite of his M-G-M efforts and Leonard Maltin made this the only of those shorts to be shown complete on his "The Lost Stooges" VHS tape from the early '90s. P.S. The theater manager who throws out the boys in the beginning is Edward Brophy who would later play the Stooges' restaurant boss in Swing Parade of 1946.
