The closing music ("The End") of this short is the only time that the familiar "Mockingbird" Theme song was played without the raucous bird voices, which are replaced here by muted trumpets. See more »

Water... give me water.

The last entry in the Columbia 2-Disc Set of Three Stooges shorts is a standard affair, watchable but not exactly a classic (to be honest, very few of these, if any, were!). The boys cause havoc at a shop selling rare items, then discover they've inherited an atelier; the funniest bit is the climax, with the exhibition of their surreal models dressed in clothes resembling furniture (complete with drawers wherein to keep their cosmetics)!
These shorts are essentially pleasant and certainly harmless but they're not in any way on the same plane as their contemporaries Laurel & Hardy; one film of theirs I'd love to rewatch, however, is WE WANT OUR MUMMY (1939) which I used to watch as a kid (my father owned a copy on Super 8!)...
