Trivia

Solomon Horowitz, the real-life father of Moe, Shemp, and Curly, appears as a street onlooker in the scene near the end where the Stooges crash their gurney into the car; he's the stocky man with moustache and glasses, wearing a fedora (he's also in the courtroom audience in "Disorder in the Court"). Solomon and his wife Jenny were in town visiting their famous sons when these classic films were made. See more »

one of their best executed shorts
26 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a red-blooded American male, I honor my heritage and fulfill my destiny by working hard, paying taxes, and loving the work of The Three Stooges. Especially the great body of work produced during their first seven years at Columbia, from 1934-40. Moe Howard would later claim it was tough sledding for the Stooges then, because the studio kept them in a constant state of apprehension as to their future employment; but the shorts they made prior to 1940 stand the test of time as the freshest, most vibrant, and most fall-down-funny stuff they recorded on film.

"Dizzy Doctors" is a great example of this trio's comedy in it's prime. So much incident is packed into such a short running time; the boy's getting the job selling Brighto, their encounters with the cop and the car owner, their "broadcast" on the hospital intercom, the wheelchair mishap in the hospital corridor...I could go on and on. This film is hysterical.

The boys are at their peak here, years away from Curly's decline, reduced budgets, 'remakes' loaded with old footage, and Joe Besser. From 1934 until 1940 Stooge Comedy was pristine, and "Dizzy Doctors" stands as one of the best examples.
