Storyline

The stooges are sailors working in a ships' tailor shop. When they can't get passes to go ashore, they steal officers uniforms and go to a party with Curly passing himself off as Admiral Taylor and Moe and Larry as his aides. Two spies, one of them a beautiful woman, trick the stooges into stealing a new submarine. The boys turn the table on the spies and capture them. When the real Admiral shows up, Curly's reenacts the capture and accidentally detonates a bomb, blowing them all to kingdom come. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

A Very Entertaining Stooges Short
19 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a wild and very funny Three Stooges short. Some of the best lines, which have to be seen rather than explained here, are - no surprise - by Curly, who seemed to be at this peak around this team. He was flat-out hilarious in here, in on almost all the gags....and there were a lot of funny lines in here, as well as the normal amount of sight gags.

The Stooges are tailors on a Naval Base and they wind up impersonating an admiral and his staff. They are in-and-out of trouble the entire time, from both the American officers and the spies (presumably German, although this was made a couple of years before the U.S. entered WWII.) What's neat is that Curly finally gets some revenge on his two partners, and has them thrown in jail for awhile.

From Curly drinking gasoline and having bombs fly into his arms to the hot babes flirting with the guys to the outrageous last scene with the angel outfits, this was a winner! Curly says some very smart things in here, too. For instance, a hot female spy is flirting with him, massaging his head. Curly is getting excited. "Oh, Admiral," she coos, "don't you trust me? "Sure, but I don't trust myself," says Curly in a very unintentionally profound statement.
