The stooges are tramps looking for handouts. Although the boys are down and out, Curly seems to get everything he wishes for.

The boys winds up at the Mrs. Jenkins' house just in time for a free meal. To repay Mrs. Jenkins the boys try to fix her well and instead unleash an oil geyser. Learning that Mrs. Jenkins has been swindled, the boys go to retrieve the deed before it can be recorded. They find the bad guys and after a wild fight recover the deed. The boys return the deed to Mrs. Jenkins and marry her daughters; April, May and June. Written by

After the boys marry the sisters Moe says that now a set of quintuplets would make everything perfect, Curly says that they will just honeymoon in Canada. This is a reference to the Dionne quintuplets who were born in Corbiel Canada in 1934 and were the first known set of quintuplets to survive infancy. See more »

A few familiar faces appear in this Three Stooges short subject where the boys make an interesting discovery of oil on the property of a widow with three marriageable daughters. Funny thing is these daughters certainly didn't look desperate enough to consider Howard, Howard and Fine as husband material.
One of the best visuals in a Three Stooges movie occurs here when after taking apart a pump and cleaning it out the boys strike oil. They make it look so easy, but as the gusher explodes out of the pump, Curly who had been sitting on it is carried up by the force of the gusher and is sitting on top of it. Don't worry, but that Stooge ingenuity gets him down.
Dorothy Comingore two years away from being Susan Alexander in Citizen Kane plays the widow with the marriageable daughters. Two of the swindlers who try to cheat Comingore of her farm are perennial western villain Dick Curtis and future B picture lead James Craig.
Oil wildcatters the world over wondered what they were doing wrong after seeing this.
