This is one of the all-time famous Three Stooges films. It's total insanity, start-to-finish, and even though it's corny it still gets a ton of laughs even today. To me, it also demonstrates the comic genius of Curly.
All the action takes place in court and we see only one witness: Curly, of all people! He and the boys are trying to get their friend "Gail Tempest" (those who remember actress Gail Storm will appreciate this humor) out of a murder charge. "Who killed Cock Robin" is the question here.
Curly goes through his classic routine of trying to take his hat off, raise his right hand and put his left hand on the Bible all at the same time! It's almost become a classic routine. He does other things in here, too, that only Curly could pull off.
Watching this yesterday for the first time in about 20 years and probably the 10th overall, I still laughed out loud at several things, namely: What the jury looked like after the attorney says, "It is merely an attempt to influence this intelligent, broad-minded and most-intelligent jury!" (You see 12 of the dumbest-looking people you've ever seen!); Moe shooting a "tarantula" (some guy's wig) and Larry doing his Tarzan yell.
What can you say? This is The Three Stooges at the height of their hilarity.
