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 »

One of the best Three Stooges shorts of all time!, 3 August 2004
Author: Movie Nuttball from U.S.A.

The Three Stooges has always been some of the many actors that I have loved. I love just about every one of the shorts that they have made. I love all six of the Stooges (Curly, Shemp, Moe, Larry, Joe, and Curly Joe)! All of the shorts are hilarious and also star many other great actors and actresses which a lot of them was in many of the shorts! In My opinion The Three Stooges is some of the greatest actors ever and is the all time funniest comedy team!

This one is arguably the funniest of all the shorts. Plus this is one of My all time favorites! I love Ann Doran's Countess character just not because she is beautiful but also because she is very classy and she is always serious. Also the beautiful Lorna Gray performs quite well here. Three Sappy People is filled with great acting by not only the Stooges but also the other cast members which include Don Beddo, Bud Jamison, Beatrice Blinn, Richard Fiske, Eddie Laughton, and Victor Travers! I think that this is one of the greatest Three Stooges shorts of all time with great acting by everyone, it has beautiful women, and some of the most hilarious scenes ever seen on film! This is a very special Three Stooges short! Its a great one for Stooge for fans to watch and I strongly recommend it!
