Great Three Stooges short!, 28 September 2004
Author: Movie Nuttball from U.S.A.

The Three Stooges has always been some of the many actors that I have loved. I love just about every one of the shorts that they have made. I love all six of the Stooges (Curly, Shemp, Moe, Larry, Joe, and Curly Joe)! All of the shorts are hilarious and also star many other great actors and actresses which a lot of them was in many of the shorts! In My opinion The Three Stooges is some of the greatest actors ever and is the all time funniest comedy team!

This is a hilarious Three Stooges short in My opinion. The Stooges are so funny. Jean Carmen, Lucille Lund, and Earlene Heath all perform well and they look excellent! Bud Jamison and James C. Morton were good. Also appearing is Bobby Burns! There is another Three Stooges short with Shemp very similar like this one called A Missed Fortune. I strongly recommend both!
