One of my favorite Stooges shorts
10 March 2012 | by (St. Louis, MO) – See all my reviews

This short about how Moe, Larry and Curly try to find gold to help a crippled boy get a surgery but accidentally end up breaking into the national reserve is one of my favorite movies they've ever done.

The joke when they're digging a hole in the basement and are too deep into the hole to throw the dirt up to the top and Curly asks Moe where he's supposed to put the dirt and Moe responds with dig another whole for it still makes me bust out laughing.

The Stooges had a special charm to them that I can't see anyone else being able to pull off their sort of humor and people not thinking it's stupid.
