In this short, Curly tries to pack a land line phone into a suitcase. When asked why he replies "in case we get a call while we're gone." To which Moe calls him an imbecile. This scene foreshadows the concept of a cell phone, approximately 30 years before the first one was made by Motorola in 1973.See more »

Some More of Samoa (1941)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

The Three Stooges play tree surgeons who are offered a job by a crazy old man who is in love with his special tree and wants the boys to find it a mate. The Stooges head off for a jungle where they find the tree but with it are cannibals and an alligator. SOME MORE OF SAMOA isn't a classic and there are many dry spots throughout it but there are enough laughs scattered around to make it worth viewing. If you're new to the trio then it's best that you don't start here since it really doesn't show the boys at their very best but fans should get enough laughs out of it. I think the highlight of the film comes towards the end when the tree falls into the mouth of an alligator and the boy have to find a way to get it back without losing any of their limbs. The scenes with Curly attempting to get it back are quite funny as are the scenes where the cannibals are about to cook him after he refuses to marry the chief's extremely ugly sister. The first half of the show is pretty much misses in regards to laughs, although the surgery sequence with the old man got a few chuckles.
