This is another wild and wacky Three Stooges from their Columbia Pictures days. Although it was now 1941, this one still had the zany look and feel of the '30s episodes. In other words, it was pure lunacy and fun to watch.
In just 17 minutes, the boys go from window washers to dentists to refugee children in little kids' outfits (which you have to see to believe!) Along the way, you get tons of slapstick gags and totally outrageous behavior, with credibility stretched the max. The latter was perhaps never more so than this Stooges story because everyone believes these 40-year-old guys are six-year-old!
There are a lot of familiar faces in this one, people who played in a number of Three Stooges shorts, and they are all fun to watch. Emory Parnell was especially good as "Ajax." Richard Fisk, who plays the dentist ("Dr. I. Yankum") is best remembered as an Army drill sergeant who the Stooges drove nuts in a couple of episodes.
The dentist scenes, by the way, will make you squirm. The sound effects are incredible. It is "Marathon Man" but with laughs!
