WHOOPS, I'M AN Indian (Del Lord, 1936) **1/2
9 February 2008 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

This is another Stooges short with a Western setting, which has some nice backwoods scenery but is otherwise routine. Here, the boys are swindlers run out of town by the customers of a saloon; they subsequently have to fend for themselves, where we get a good gag which has Curly trying to procure food by going underwater and shooting at the fish! Eventually, they reach a log-cabin – the property of one of their 'victims' and whose wife has been abducted by Indians; coincidentally, The Stooges disguise themselves as Native Americans which, of course, incurs the trapper's wrath (and also gives the film its title!). At the finale, our heroes are back in town – believing their Indian disguise will fool the locals – but, on the run once again soon after, they unwittingly lock themselves up in jail!
