Another Stooge Classic, 7 July 2003
Author: Brian Washington (Sargebri@att.net) from Los Angeles, California

This is one of the funniest of all the Stooge classics. No wonder various elements of this short have been used in many Stooge shorts that came out in later years. I especially loved the scenes with the Stooges and Jose. Jose is the ultimate jealous husband. He is such a paranoid individual that he would probably kill a man just for looking at his wife. But the scene that really makes this film is, of course, the bullfighting scene, especially Curly's reaction that the bull is real and not Moe and Larry in a bull costume. That scene alone makes this a classic.
