Gold mine 'salesman':
100,000 tons of pure gold. At $35 an ounce, think of it.
I can't. How much that in round numbers.
[Curly moves his head left to right with calculator sounds and ends with a ding, pulls calculator paper out of his mouth, reads it]
That's 80 billion, 61 million and 51 cents of a fraction.

This Three Stooges short isn't one of the more memorable ones, except it has the boys' mom in it. Who remembers what Curly, Larry and Moe's mom looked like? Not me, and I've seen this a few times over a 50-year period.
Actually, the answer is Monty Collins, an ugly guy in drag who plays "Ma Stooge." She/he looks more like "Ma Barker!" Outside of her-him, it's a lot of standard Stooge slapstick with the boys hitting each other and a ton of sound effects. Early on the trio squeezes into a tiny bathroom and Moe shaves Curly with a straight razor, which will make you wince a few times!
Vernon Dent, a regular in the series, plays a prospector with a beard. You may not recognize him, but his voice told me who it was.
