Trivia:
It has long been claimed that, during the cream puff fight, Lorna Gray (Sheri Rumsford) had a cream puff accidentally lodged into her throat. However, Miss Gray has said that the story is exaggerated. She was quite surprised at its impact and accuracy (as seen in her eyes, on-screen), but says she was never in any distress or required any medical attention.See more »

Notable for a particular car seen in the short, 2 February 2009
Author: boatista24 from United States

In this great Stooges short we see a rare treasure indeed - worth many thousands of dollars today - a Springfield, Massachusetts-built 1928-1931 Rolls Royce Phantom I with left-hand drive. The car is an unusual one, in that the coach-builder apparently built the body into somewhat of a cabriolet - the top is longer than that of a roadster, but shorter than a full phaeton. The car appears to have only two doors, the normal Phantom I wire wheels have custom complete color-coded wheel covers, and the car is painted an unusual color (not black). Having built many detailed models of this chassis with several body styles, the example in this Stooges short makes it a treasure beyond the great humor that made seeing it possible.
