Storyline

The stooges make a whole batch of homemade beer, but get tossed in jail when Curly sells some to a policeman. Their minor indiscretion turns into a forty year sentence when a barrel of beer Curly has hidden under his coat explodes while the boys are being photographed. In prison, the stooges get into more trouble with the warden and wind on the rockpile when they try to escape. Finally released as old men with long gray beards, the first thing Curly wants is a bottle of beer. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

Unreal, but it's the Three Stooges.
17 August 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is a humourous Three Stooges short. Do not take lessons in making beer from the Three Stooges. The short drags in parts and is not funny in parts. Watch it if you haven't anything better to do. The Stooges were starting to show their age in the 1940's, and this is one of the better one's from that time.
