Did You Know?


The Three Stooges perform a famous vaudeville routine known as "Slowly I Turned" (aka "Niagara Falls"), which Bud Abbott and Lou Costello performed in Lost in a Harem (1944), released the same year as this short. See more »


During the "Niagara Falls" skit in front of the shipyard workers, Larry blows his line. The skit is supposed to start off with, "Slowly I turned, step by step, inch by inch", but Larry says "inch by inch" as the second line instead of "step by step", as Moe does. See more »


Flo: Who are you, and what are you doing in here?
Larry: Well... we came up here to break your neck.
FloMaryShirley: [threateningly] Oh, yeah?
Curly: Wait a minute! That's before we saw you.
Moe: You see, we live in the room below. We was rehearsing our act, but you were dancing and...
Curly: [pointing to a spot on his head] The chandelier hit me in the head.
Flo: Oh, what an awful lump.
Curly: That's no lump, that's my head.

Another Very Funny Three Stooges Short This Is!
11 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had no idea that this Three Stooges short even existed until I bought the Three Stooges Collection Volume Four, and after I watched a lot of the other ones like They Stooge To Conga, I watched this one, and another very funny Three Stooges short this is! I was laughing myself silly while watching this short! And like with a lot of other Three Stooges, I was in pain from laughing, this short is not one of their funniest, but it is still really hysterical and laugh-filled! This is actually in my opinion one of their best of the year 1944, I am not knocking some of the others of 1944, but this is one of their best in my opinion!

You are really going to love this Three Stooges short when you watch this, like a lot of Three Stooges shorts, you are going to be just laughing and laughing away when you see Moe, Larry, and Curly!
