Storyline

The stooges are potters in ancient Rome during the reign of Emperor Octopus Grabus. When the emperor orders all beautiful red-headed women to be brought before him so he can select a wife, Diana, a pretty red-head, seeks refuge with the stooges. Some soldiers find Diana's hiding place and they are all brought to the palace where the stooges escape and try to pass of Curly as Diana, having broken the emperor's glasses. Their ruse fails and they're caught by the palace guards as they try to escape. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>
