Did You Know?


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 »


Policeman: [Larry is standing next to a fence with one leg hidden to look crippled] Oh I'm sorry buddy. I didn't notice the leg was gone.
Larry: Huh? Oh yeah, gone but not forgotten.
Policeman: War, eh?
Larry: No, banana peel.

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.
