The stooges decide to get some easy money by having Curly slip on a bar of soap in a hotel lobby so they can sue the owner. Curly slips as planned but the hotel turns out to be run by an old lady who is about to lose her lease to the evil landlord. The stooges decide to help her fix up the place and start by beating up the landlord and stealing his watch. After their usual antics in renovating the place, the hotel is ready for the grand re-opening. The stooges put on a big show with a famous critic in attendance. Their corny act goes over poorly until Curly accidentally puts on a magicians coat and becomes a sensation and the place is a success. Written by Mitch Shapiro <>

Curly's suggestion that Grandma see a "single feature" was a reference to the fact that double features were by now crowding short subjects (including "The 3 Stooges") off the bill. See more »

Hilarious one!
13 June 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

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 one here is one of the funniest and cool Three Stooges shorts ever! I love the dance Curly has with Dorothy Appleby and the all of the scenes with Eddie Laughton! Look for Bud Jamison, Vernon Dent, Symona Boniface, John Tyrrell, and Victor Travers! The music in this short film is excellent! I strongly recommend this classic!
