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).

Pardon My Scotch (1935) ***
26 January 2013 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Funny Three Stooges short has them in various situations over the span of its quick running time. They begin as clueless carpenters who are trying to install a new door (this routine is one of the best they ever did, and Moe explained in his memoirs that he actually broke his ribs doing a real fall from a table that gets sawed in two ... amazingly, he still managed to rise up and finish the shot before collapsing in pain!). Then the Stooges are mistaken for pharmacists, who inadvertently concoct a beverage that gets bought by a booze salesman. In the end they find themselves at one of those high class parties where they just don't fit in, causing riotous mayhem. *** out of ****
