Storyline

Set in a western town, the stooges are working as waiters in a saloon with the three girls they hope to marry. The proprietor of the saloon is a crook who, with his partner, has buried $40,000 of stolen money. The boys go prospecting in hopes of raising enough money to pay off the debts of their fiancée father, who owes money to their boss. They dig up the stolen money, which the crooks recognize as their loot and abscond with. A wild chase ensues, ending with the bad guy's car crashing into the Sheriff's office.

Goofs

At one point Moe does the eyes-poke on Curly, and the choreography is performed very poorly so the phoniness is blatantly apparent. See more »

Looking for a phrase
30 April 2005 | by (Essex, Maryland) – See all my reviews

I know I've seen this one a million times,BUT Is this the one where Curley says"Ain't Nature Wonderful"?I have a tapeworm's lunch bet on it! According to your guidelines, a comment have to be 10 lines or more. I don't think anyone of the Stooges shorts had more than ten lines of dialog, and you want 10 lines of comments? That's stretching things a little, don't you think, unless of course, the one's submitting comments are a bit on the long winded sort. I'm having difficulty stretching this request longer then I have proceeded so far. I still need two lines in order for this request to go through. I've already over burnt the toast for the tapeworm lunch, on the pure premise that I will be losing this bet in the first place, because this isn't the type of site I was looking for. A place where Stooge devotees could get an answer to questions that goggle doesn't even possess. Is that 10 yet?Well I'll be a monkey's uncle. It rottenly is! And I know that was spelled wrong, Spelt, if you're from the U.K.
