The Fourth Three Stooges Short Is Really A Laugh Filled One!
6 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the Three Stooges' fourth short in their short film series and their last of 1939, and I can say that the fourth Three Stooges short is really a laugh filled one! This short is mainly a really hysterical one because it is one of their early ones, and they made many of their best shorts in their early years, like Punch Drunks and Men In Black, as for me, this is not my personal favorite Three Stooges short, that goes to a tie between Punch Drunks and A Plumbing We Will Go, but this Three Stooges short is still filled with a lot of laughs, I remember that I was really laughing and laughing a lot when I first saw this short, and now I can watch it at anytime that I would like to watch it because I own it on DVD as part of the Three Stooges Collection Volume One!

The Three Stooges made many of their best shorts around their early years, 1934, 1935, and 1936, but hey, they made many great ones during the Shemp era, but in my opinion, they made many of their best ones with Curly in most of their early years. Well let me just put it this way, I have loved all of the Three Stooges shorts that I have seen so far! Nothing more, nothing less.

Prepare to see the Three Stooges in a really hysterical riot-filled short film that is really going to cause you to laugh and laugh your head off! You are really going to love this short!

10/10
