Pain the the Pullman, A (1936)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

The Three stooges board a train heading for a new job but their pet monkey causes all sorts of trouble. Once again, this short is pretty good but there are still plenty of misses in the joke department. The best moment is when the boys are trying to get into their bed but it's up to high so they have a little trouble. The monkey also gets a few nice laughs.

Now available on Columbia's 2-disc set, which features over 20 shorts, all digitally remastered and looking better than ever.
