Storyline

Three good-for-nothings overhear a movie producer and his partners offering a grand sum if someone will present him with a sure-fire movie idea. The leader of the three dopes, Gus Parkyakarkus, barges into the meeting with his cohorts and proceeds to rattle off spiels for several inane prospective movies. The three are delighted to be told they've made a sale, but the producers turn out to have a surprise in store. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Curly Howard proves he's nothing without brother Moe or Larry Fine in Roast-Beef and Movies
10 January 2013 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This was a rarity found on the Dancing Lady DVD. It's a very lame short of interest only because it's the only one to feature Curly Howard of The Three Stooges without his brother Moe or Larry Fine. Instead, his co-horts are George Givot who seems to speak in a bogus Greek accent and is the leader and Bob Callahan who only lived a few years after this film. They're "producers" trying to impress a studio head. Oh, and I have to mention this is in two-strip Technicolor and includes a couple of musical numbers meant for other movies. Since they were both filmed in the early talkie era, the stillness of shots makes both numbers quite static except for some overhead shots and not very interesting to watch except for historical purposes. So, really, I can't recommend Roast-Beef and Movies except as a curiosity.
