Trivia

The role of Dr. Bright is played by character actor Horace Murphy, who played Tex Ritter's comic sidekick in a number of low-budget Westerns, as well as other assorted roles. Check him out as Tom Murphy in MGM's "Boom Town" (1940) with Gable and Tracy (his scenes are at 28:38, 39:37, and 1:08:10). You can see Horace on You-Tube in the Tex Ritter Westerns "Rollin' Plains" (at around 4 mins) and "Trouble in Texas" (try 13:17 and 16:34). His last listed role was as a Farmer on TV's "Abbott and Costello Show" - the episode "Car Trouble" (watch on Hulu)-- Horace is on at 18:26. Same unmistakable face and voice ('Polish?! You idiots...that's MEDICINE!') See more »

Quotes

[removes the rag to realize that the Brighto has eaten right through the man's shoe]
Moe: And neither will I!

Bright-o comedy featuring the Stooges
30 June 2003 | by (US) – See all my reviews

The Stooges are ordered by their wives to find jobs or never darken the house again. Fortunately for them, they have awakened bright and early at 11 AM to start searching for work. Their wives read an ad to sell "Brighto," and tell the Stooges to get the sales jobs.

The boys arrive at the Brighto office as "three of the best salesmen who ever saled." They immediately launch into a selling frenzy, running out into the street and down sidewalks hawking Brighto. The Stooges run into trouble when they sell Brighto as a cleaner and not as the medicine it is intended to be. Will they still make a sale and get out of trouble?

"Dizzy Doctors" succeeds on two levels. First, the aforementioned manic way the Stooges sell Brighto; second, when they arrive at Los Arms Hospital to hawk their wares. The scene where they try to cure a man hospitalized for dandruff is hilarious. The hospital scenes harken back to their 1935 Academy Award nominated film, "Men in Black."

A good, solid Stooge comedy. 8 out of 10.
