Trivia

Moe Howard broke several ribs and suffered a concussion due to performing his own stunt in the scene when he falls from a sawed-in-half table. However, as this was more or less a "one-take" scene, he actually stood up after the fall and finished up the scene. This being said, the scene in the movie is the actual crash that caused the injuries. This shot (along with the rest of this opening) was also re-edited into the 1943 short Dizzy Detectives (1943).

'What Tools?'
11 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

Like a number of Three Stooges films, this was broken down into several segments where the boys could use extended gag scenes.

For instance, in the opening scene they are carpenters and are assigned to work on a big door. Before they get started, Moe tells Larry: "Get the tools."

"What tools?," asks Larry.

"The tools we've been using for the last 10 years.

"Oh, those tools."

This opening carpenter scene was used in later Stooges film almost a decade later with basically the same jokes.

The next comedy scene is when the boys, filling in the for the drug store owner who went to get some bourbon (it was still the Prohibition era), are asked by a feeling-low customer, are asked to "give me a pick-up," meaning make the man an alcoholic drink. The boys go out back to the pharmacy and concoct a beverage to remember! After being mistaken for Scottish distillers (their drink was a hit!), the boys are hired to provide the beverages for a swank party.

If you've seen many of the Three Stooges films, you know the chaos they cause as snobby parties! (I know it's stupid but I never to fail to laugh when one of the Stooges silences an opera singer by firing a banana into the guy's mouth!) Anyway, dressed in kilts and yelling "hoot, mon" make a farce out of the party, which always is fun to watch. One difference in this one: most of the snobs actually enjoy the Stooges!
