Did You Know?

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 »
Dr. Bright:Well boys, how did it go?
Curly:We rubbed it on a man's car, and it took the paint right off. That polish ain't no good.

Dizzy Doctors (1937)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Classic Three Stooges short has the boys being threatened by their wives to find jobs or move out. The boys are eventually hired as salesmen and they start passing around what they think is spot remover but it does a lot more damage than that. This is another classic from the Stooges even though the second half isn't nearly as funny as the first. I think the first half features some of their greatest gags, which starts off with the boys sleeping in until eleven, eating breakfast for five minutes and then getting back into bed. Curly eating the soap is one highlight but most of the great gags happen on the streets as the boys start selling. The "spot remover" actually removes clothing from a cops uniform and removes the paint from another guys car and these are the biggest laughs of the film. Another great gag is the cop thinking Larry is missing a leg, which is actually just through a fence.
