Studying Art In Gay Paree
13 January 2009 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Harry Gribbon former Mack Sennett Keystone Cop and Shemp Howard sometime Stooge are a pair of house painters who get a once in a lifetime opportunity for an art scholarship. All they have to do is do it under the aliases provided by James Stewart and Don Tomkins who are being forced to go to Paris and study art by their rich mater and pater. If you can believe that, you'll believe anything.

Just as I never thought I would see a film where Shemp Howard was billed over Jimmy Stewart. Yet this Vitagraph short subject marked the film debut of a screen legend.

Gribbon and Shemp are living it up in Gay Paree with the money sent by the parents of the guys they're impersonating after each pre-written letter that they send. Still they manage to screw up the arrangement.

Highlight of the short subject for me is Shemp Howard attempting to do the apache dance and getting the roles reversed. Art Trouble is a mildly amusing short that would be totally forgotten today if a screen icon weren't in it.
