Nice Stooges Short, 19 June 2009
Author: Michael_Elliott from Louisville, KY

Cash and Carry (1937)

*** (out of 4)

The Three Stooges find a crippled boy and his sister living in their junk yard so they go to deposit their money in the bank so that nothing happens to it. The boys end up trading the money away for a "buried treasure", which two con men tell them is in a house, which they soon destroy trying to look for the goods. This here is a pretty good short for the boys, which features a similar plot to the one that would be used in LARCENY, INC. (and later SMALL TIME CROOKS). The movie features plenty of nice laughs from start to finish even though there aren't any real loud ones. My favorite sequence is towards the end when all three men are down in this giant hole they dug when they realize they don't have any place to throw the new dirt so they decide to dig another hole just to put the new dirt in. Moe ends up getting beat up pretty bad by the other two who keep swinging their shovels. The opening stuff dealing with the junk car and its bad tires is pretty funny as well but the ending is where the film really works.
