Beau Jesters, 9 February 2011
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York

In this short subject, Moe, Larry, and Curly find themselves as starving artists in a Parisian flat wondering how they're going to pay 8 months of back rent. When the landlord knocks for his rent, the Three Stooges slip out the back way.

Only these three would think that the sign French Foreign Legion was just a French adjunct of the American Legion. The thought of these three in World War I boggles the mind as well. They go in for a loan and come out members of the Foreign Legion.

After that Wee Wee Monsieur becomes a spoof on exotic foreign legion films and military films in general. Curly has the same problems Lou Costello had in Buck Privates with marching. And when they have to rescue their captain, why Curly is positively adorable as a harem maiden to the sheik.

A real good one, especially since this one spotlights Curly.
