Storyline

The stooges are icemen who, while delivering ice to a house on the top of a high hill, destroy several cakes that a wealthy man is trying to bring home. When their antics cause the servants at their customer's house to quit, the boys are hired to take their place and prepare a dinner party. What they don't know is that the party is for the man whose cakes they wrecked. When Moe's gas filled cake explodes and the man realizes who they are, they must leave in a hurry.

Trivia

The turkey stuffing gags were performed 7 years earlier by Shemp Howard in his Vitaphone short subject A Peach of a Pair (1934); the director of that film was Lloyd French, this movie's screenwriter. See more »

An Ache in Every Stake (1941) stars Moe, Larry, and Curly as ice men delivering frozen water to hot people.

Curly said it best when he said, "Why don't you just get an electric icebox that does away with work, worry, and bother?" Curly's hilarious turkey stuffing/preparation bit is in this! Two potatoes diced! Can of peas! Pinch the salt! Loaf of bread well soaked!

Larry also is funny breathing in natural gas...I almost fell over!

They end up ruining two cakes of the judge (Vernon Dent) and destroying the judge's birthday party dinner.

This is one of my favorite stooge shorts that is right up there with Three Little Beers! Watch for it on TV or Columbia Home Video.
