One Of The Finest Three Stooges Short Films Of The Late 1930's!, 11 April 2010
Author: Humphrey Fish from United States

I first saw this Three Stooges short subject from 1939 a long time ago when one day I was flicking through the channels on television when I saw that this one channel was showing some Three Stooges shorts, and this one was the one that was coming on next, and so I got to catch this short from the beginning. I thought that this was one of the finest Three Stooges short films of the late 1930's! This is a very funny Three Stooges short that is really going to promise us a lot of laughs, and when I mead laughs, I mean laughs out-loud! This is probably the Three Stooges funniest short of the year 1939, along with Calling All Curs!

And of course there is what usually happens in a lot of the Three Stooges shorts, slapping, hitting, punching, kicking, you name it, it is there, abuse! The Three Stooges are among the most violent people I have seen on screen, this short is nothing compared to They Stooge To Conga, that one is very violent! But it wouldn't be the Three Stooges if there wasn't much violence or anything like that, because you have to have violence in a Three Stooges short!

To all people who are really huge fans of the Three Stooges, if you really want to see a very hysterical Three Stooges short that promises a lot of laughs, then you should watch this, because this one promises a lot of laughs!
