Storyline

While Rusty Williams is away at college, he leaves his cousin, Shorty Williams, in charge of his large ranch. Shorty, more concerned with his prospecting ambitions, wanders into town looking for backers. At the Wagon Wheel Cafe, he encounters a couple of vagrants, Curly and Larry, who are just a step or two ahead of Sheriff Zeke, who have won some money at the roulette wheel and they immediately become prime prospects for backing Shorty's nebulous prospecting scheme. Meanwhile, June McGuire and Betty Vale, whose singing act has failed at the café, are packing for New York. Shorty, who has fallen for Betty, persuades the girls to go to the ranch. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Rusty has returned with intentions of selling the ranch. He tells Shorty, Curly and Larry to hit the trail, and instructs his cowhands, the Hoosier Hotshots, to round up the cattle for the buyer's inspection the next morning. Shorty, Curly and Larry inadvertently (of course) make a hole in the fence and the cattle... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Even many die-hard Stooges fans may have a hard time sitting through this one!
10 November 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While technically this film stars the Three Stooges, you'd barely notice it as instead of comedy, the film is more a limp song and dance film that looks a lot like a country-western version of "The Ed Sullivan Show". This is because it truly looks like adding the trio was more an afterthought--and the emphasis was certainly NOT on comedy. Instead, the film is all about some folks out west who have ambitions to become stars and spend much of the film annoying a poor guy on vacation in the hope that he'd take them to Hollywood. As a result, you hear LOTS of musical numbers--and all during this time you keep wondering when the Stooges are going to get a chance to do their stuff. There supposedly is more plot to the film than this--but there really isn't. None of ever gets funny and the film is simply dreadful--with washed out performances by Stooges who seem to have no idea why they are there in the first place. Amazingly dull.
