Fun Stooges Short

Goofs and Saddles (1937)

*** (out of 4)

Spoof of the Old West has The Three Stooges playing Wild Bill Hiccup, Buffalo Bilious and Just Plain Bill as the three are sent out to try and gather information on some cattle rustlers. This here is a pretty good short as it contains a nice amount of laughs as well as some funny physical stuff but I wouldn't necessarily call it a classic. The highlight would have to be a scene where the three dress themselves as trees so that they can spy on the enemy but they end up getting too close and one of the bad guys things he sees a rabbit jump into the bushes. Axe and gun play soon follow. Another nice sequence is a poker game where the Stooges start cheating without knowing the man they're playing with just killed three other men for doing the same thing. The nice shoot out at the end makes for an entertaining way to spend 20-minutes.
