Trivia

This was one of several World War II-era Stooges shorts that engaged in propaganda against the then-enemy Japanese. The term "Jap", used liberally throughout this film (and during the World War II-era in general) is now considered offensive. See more »

Who threw that pie?
8 March 2000 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

"Professor I can't stand it any longer! Who threw that pie?!" You'll be asking yourself this same question while watching this great slice of comic mayhem. The Stooges are key figures in the breaking up of the Great Spy Ring in this short. But they are not spies. They are just simple salesmen who wander into horror, hell, and very funny situations. After assigned as bodyguards to a professor's house the boys meet up with skeletons, mummies, strange sounds, U.F.P's (unidentified flying pies) and the Devil?! Great piece of mystery/silliness that has it all. Look closely for Charles Middleton (Emperor Ming of the 1930's Flash Gordon serials.
