The stooges are photographers for Whack magazine ("If it's a good picture it's out of Whack") who, after messing up an assignment, are sent to the country of Vulgaria to get a picture of a death ray gun. In Vulgaria the penalty for taking pictures in is death, and the boys soon wind up in front of a firing squad. Curly's last request is a giant cigar and by the time he's done smoking it all the soldiers are asleep and the stooges make their escape. Written by

Here, the boys - "Click, Clack and Cluck" - pretend to be newspaper cameramen and are given the assignment of taking some pictures of a Hollywood celebrity couple
The boys were in prime condition in the early 1940s and they are fun to watch in here. It's just a little weird watching this in early '08 with all the Britney Spears-paparazzi nonsense. The Stooges look like such innocents compared to the modern-day piranhas.....but the mentality is the same. Invade someone's privacy? No problem. However, it's funny when you see things like Curly's head on a platter on top of a dinner table. Anything to get the picture!
By the way, Stanley Brown and Marjorie Deanne are great as "Percival DePuyster" and his gorgeous wife. Unfortunately, their scenes are completed after just two-and-a-half minutes.
Most of the movie takes place in "Vulgaria," a place our Dimwits are assigned after they mess up in the dark room. They are assigned to take some photos there because "No cameras are allowed, under penalty of death," the boss figures he has nothing to lose by sending these three idiots.
Most of this Three Stooges short are a bunch of continuous slapstick gags. Some are still funny to this day; some are stupid, but they come so frequently, you just go with the flow.
I did laugh out loud at a number of things Curly said and did. I think he was a comic genius, and I don't say that about many people. In one scene, the boys are lined up to be shot. "Hey, wait a minute," says Moe. "According to International Law, we are entitled to a last request."
"Yeah," says Curly, "this is Request Night!"
When the boys ask for "a last smoke," Curly pulls out a three-foot cigar!
Bud Jamison, a frequent contributor to the Stooges films, is a hoot with his fake Eastern European accent.
