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

Lesser Three Stooges short has the boys in the town of Valeska trying to sell clothes to people who don't want them. Soon they find themselves in the middle of a war but thankfully for them the town is prone to earthquakes. This short starts off pretty flat and never really picks up as we get one lazy joke after another and none of them contain any major laughs. The only bright spot in the short is when the boys are locked up in prison and they're given weapons to escape but of course they're too dumb to do much good with them. Other jokes that don't work include a strange looking horse, a murder attempt on the boys and the side plot of the earthquakes. The earthquake effects are poorly done but they're nearly so bad that they have a bizarre charm to them. I'm sure fans of the boys will want to check this out just so they can see everything they've done but don't expect any laughs.
