The stooges are traveling salesmen stranded in Valeska, a tropical country prone to earthquakes. Having no luck selling fur coats to the natives they are arrested when they receive a telegram instructing them to "get rid of present wardrobe" and an official thinks they are planning to assassinate president Ward Robey. With the help of Rita, a beautiful revolutionary, the boys escape a firing squad, and are sent on a mission to deliver important plans to the revolutionary leader. When they deliver a rolled up calendar by mistake, they are once again heading for a firing squad but are spared when Rita arrives with the real plans. Written by

For those of you younger cinema fans don't think for one moment that this Three Stooges short Saved By The Belle has anything to do with a school named Bayside out in California. This film takes place in some unnamed South American country where our three intrepid heroes are salesmen trying to sell winter apparel in the tropics. The country also is on a shifting tectonic plate where sudden earthquakes seem to happen at the strangest and most opportune times for The Three Stooges.
Their antics manage to aggravate hotel owner LeRoy Mason when they can't pay their bill. Of course the company that gave them this territory won't provide them transportation back until they get rid of their winter stock. But they manage to endear themselves to South American siren Carmen Leroux who is involved in the revolution that's brewing. She gives them a mission, like is this woman out of her mind?
Western fans might recognize LeRoy Mason he was in many a western at this time usually as a bad guy, he was in several John Wayne films for Republic and Monogram. The short is directed by silent screen comedian Charley Chase and he brings the best out in Moe, Larry, and Curly.
