Storyline

The stooges are street cleaners who find some valuable bonds and return them to their owner. The man is so grateful that he offers them a big reward if they can find an honest man with executive ability. Their search leads them to a woman who's fiancée is honest, but he's in jail. The boys decide to commit a crime so they can go behind bars to find him. In prison the boys locate the man and help him escape, only to find out that their benefactor is a con man and on the way himself to the slammer. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

So Long Mr. Chumps (1941)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Decent Three Stooges short has the boys working as street cleaners who come across some bonds. They decide to return them to their owner who gives them the job of trying to find an honest man. The boys are able to find an "honest man" but he's in jail on false charges so they must find a way to get arrested and get to him. SO LONG MR. CHUMPS isn't going to be mistaken as a Stooge masterpiece but there are enough small laughs to make it worth viewing for fans of the series. Some of the best jokes happen while the boys are trying to find that honest man and use a wallet with money to try and catch one. This leads to a couple funny moments including one where a dog turns out to be the only honest man they find. The stuff in the jail is pretty much the type of violent scenes you'd expect to see in a film like this. We get scenes where Curly gets knocked upside the head with a hammer and of course Moe puts his eyes out a few more times. The big breakout sequence contains a small number of laughs as well. If you've never seen a Three Stooges short before it would probably be best to start with one of their classics but if you've seen all the better known stuff then this one here isn't too bad.
