Good one!, 9 August 2005
Author: Movie Nuttball from U.S.A.

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 is one of My favorite Three Stooges shorts with Curly! All Appearing in this short are Suzanne Kaaren, Harry Burns, Dorothy Appleby, Eddie Laughton, Cy Schindell, John Tyrrell, Bert Young, and Don Zelaya! This one is so hilarious! Curly has a great performance here and in My opinion its one of his best. There is another one similar like this with Joe Besser called Sappy Bullfighters and I strongly recommend both of these classic Three Stooges shorts!
