Moe is on trial for assaulting Curly and Larry with an ax. Moe relates how Curly and Larry took him on a hunting trip for his nerves. Out in the woods they confronted a bear which Curly and Larry stunned, and thinking it was dead, threw it in the back of their car, where it came awake, tossed Moe out and drove the car into a tree. The judge finds Moe not guilty and Moe promptly goes after Larry and Curly again with the ax. Written by

This was the first Three Stooges short to feature the Greco-Roman comic mask in the upper left-hand corner in the intros and closes. See more »
Curly is playing trombone, and properly holding the 2nd brace of the slide. When the slide goes flying and wrings Moe's neck, the 2nd brace is gone. See more »
[Curly is caught in bear trap, and Moe and Larry think the bear has got him]
Did you hear that? He's got him. He's got him.
You want the bear to eat him alive? Go out there and help him.
That bear don't need no help.
What are you, a coward?
Go on out and save him.
I'll go, but my heart ain't in it.

IDIOTS DELUXE (1945) is the last good Three Stooges short directed by Jules White before falling down into mediocrity. Considering the poor quality of all of White Stooges shorts after this one the credit for this one belongs to writer Elwood Ullman whose script is excellent. With no "poke in the eyes" jokes the two-reeler is effectively structured in flashback and features a lot of inspired gags and jokes. For once, Jules White does not milk the screenplay with protracted and unfunny gags. The version I have seen so far, in Argentina, is in Spanish; however, not even the poor dubbing can undermine the film qualities.
