Trivia

When Moe and Curly are seen standing by the bed in the boxcar, there's a scene missing. After the first exchange between the two, you can see that Curly is wearing three watches, which is usually a cue for the Stooges' "telling time" routine. That scene was obviously cut from the final version of this short. See more »

Goofs

When one of Curly's hotcakes gets stuck on the ceiling, a crew member's hand can be seen throwing the cake upwards. See more »

Quotes

Curly: How are we gonna get in pictures? We don't know nothin' about makin' movies!
Moe: There's a couple of thousand people in pictures now who know nothing about it. Three more won't make any difference.

23 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a child and thru my lifetime I watched this movie several times. We always loved the 3 Stooges, but the real reason was my father's cousin Mildred Harris,the leading lady. She died before I was born, my older sister looks just like her. Her father and my grandmother were sis/brother. I would love to find some pictures and any other information available. I do know that she was divorced. There were no living children. When my grandmother died, seems most of the Harris Family lost contact. Most of her Dad's family is from South Dakota and Indiana. She is also cousin to Bongo Phil Harris, he was the voice from the Jungle Book cartoon and recorded music. All information would be appreciated. Thanks.
