This is the first of several Stooge shorts involving a dumbwaiter, usually involving Curly accidentally destroying the floor of the elevator, causing injury to Larry and Moe. The dumbwaiter would reappear in Nutty But Nice (1940). This is also the first of sixteen Stooge shorts using the word "three" in the title. See more »

Do you guys want to play football for me?
[takes out wad of money]
[Moe and Larry nod. Curley shakes his head no]
We can't play football.
Oh, I get it... You're afraid of losing your amateur status, right?
[the Three Stooges look behind them]
That's all right, I'll protect you guys.
[waves money at them]
Listen... no one will ever see you play... no one will ever hear to play... we'll play behind closed doors. Well, what do you say?
[They all go to take the money]

With this fourth Three Stooges short, I feel like they’re growing on me as I liked it quite a bit! Racketeer Walter Long (a great Laurel & Hardy foil) needs players who can be bought for a fixed game he’s organizing. His moll (a young Lucille Ball) and her companions meet The Stooges dressed in football gear – the boys are down on their luck, so they accept a job advertising for a football team – and, mistaking them for star players, bring them home. After the initial misconception about the men’s presence in Long’s apartment – leading to a delightful chase involving a base-less dumb waiter – The Stooges find themselves in a football stadium trying to make head or tails of the game, to the chagrin of the sinister-looking gangster! The short’s football craziness and the hijinks in the apartment are clearly inspired by HORSE FEATHERS (1932), one of The Marx Bros.’ greatest vehicles.
