Trivia:
The first short The Three Stooges made with Columbia, it was written and directed by Archie Gottler, who was a poet and songwriter; all of the dialogue was in rhyme, which the Stooges didn't care for, and their characters weren't very well developed. Gottler never made another Stooges short.See more »
Goofs:
Miscellaneous: In the opening credits, "Western Electic Noiseless Recording" is shown- misspelling Electric.See more »

Mary's father:[talking to match the background music] That reminds me of a story, listen.
[points to a fat woman]
Mary's father:That's my other daughter there. When on her wedding day, the fella she was about to marry, tried to run away. Did you ever hear of a nerve like that? Well, I took care of that guy. In a room I locked him, then I socked him right in the eye.
[points to a cop]
Mary's father:Then I turned him over to my brother, the cop. He just picked him up. And spinned him round like a top.
[points to a tall strong guy]
Mary's father:Then my other brother, who's a fighter, began. Seemed ashamed to tell you what he did to that man.
[Jim looks frightened]
Jim:Did he marry your daughter?
Mary's father:Did he? I should say he did.

WOMAN HATERS (Archie Gottler, 1934) **1/2, 13 January 2008
Author: MARIO GAUCI (marrod@melita.com) from Naxxar, Malta

I’m virtually a beginner when it comes to The Three Stooges: I’d seen a few of their films – and episodes from the animated series – as a kid (this short being one of them, incidentally) but not enough to rank them judiciously in the pantheon of classic comedy.

Anyway, this has been advertised as “a musical novelty” – influenced by the work of Ernst Lubitsch, no doubt – with all dialogue written in verse! In essence, it lies somewhere between Laurel & Hardy (with the train setting recalling BERTH MARKS [1929] in particular) and The Marx Bros. – but emerging, in the long run, as less sympathetic than either. The gang joins the titular club but Larry, practically blackmailed into marriage, attempts to keep his status from pals Moe and Curley – but can’t, because his spouse turns out to be a flirt who has her eyes on them as well! Walter Brennan appears briefly as the train conductor.

I have to say that the slap-happy antics of the comic trio gets tiresome after a while. To be honest, I wonder how I’ll be able to stick the relentless display of such childish behavior through 19 Stooges shorts I’ve got scheduled (given that I’ve just acquired a copy of the official Columbia 2-Disc collection)...
