It's a wedding or the stew pot, 14 July 2014
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York

I noticed that Some More Of Samoa was released three days before Pearl Harbor. Soon enough the American movie going public would be inundated with films about the Pacific War and enough films showing a less humorous view of the South Seas.

But in this short subject we have the 3 Stooges now in the profession of tree surgeons. That's like giving the job to a professional arsonist.

However a millionaire client whom they persuade that his rare tropical tree deserves a mate sends the boys on a trip to the South Seas that they make by row boat.

They can get a tree, but the chief's ugly sister likes Curly and he has to marry them. Otherwise the boys are the main ingredient in cannibal stew.

A bad dilemma in this funny short subject.
