Great Three Stooges short!, 13 July 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 has always been one of My favorite Three Stooges shorts! The entire thing is extremely hilarious! The scene where Curly performs music in the radio and the restaurant scene is great and when the Stooges come out of the building dressed as high officers are so funny! Bud Jamison as usual puts on a great performance! This is a super funny Three Stooges short!
