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 is another of the hilarious shorts of The Three Stooges' early output
5 January 2011 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is my review of the ninth short of The Three Stooges they made for Columbia Pictures. In this one, they are handymen who try to put a new door for a pharmacy. After the proprietor leaves, however, they're in charge of the fountain drink department when a customer, a alcohol businessman who's down-on-his-luck, comes and orders something strong. The drink Moe, Larry, and Curley (as his name was still spelled at the time) literally explodes to the point that the businessman wants to do business with them! I'll stop there and just say that this was a nearly hilarious short from beginning to end though I admit cringing a little when Curley had to use that saw! In fact, after he cut that table Moe stood on, Moe injured himself when he performed that stunt of falling on the floor though it's still funny even knowing that. The real highlights were at the society party afterwards where the boys throw grapes and bananas at the opera singer (The always funny Billy Gilbert) and their funny dance in Scots clothing, not to mention Curley's involvement with bread. And, finally, this is the first time that the people have to tolerate the Stooges to get what they want and we get the first of their several theme songs (this one is the one that ends that classic novelty song, "The Curly Shuffle"). So on that note, Pardon My Scotch is well worth seeing.
