An average stooge short, somewhat ruined by Curly's performance due to a stroke that he recently suffered and it clearly shows on this short.
The stooges start off as wallpaper hangers, the stooges boss Mr. Beetle tells the boys to do a good job and he walks into Professor Panzer's office, Panzer wants to find a human brain small enough to fit inside the skull of a gorilla, then there's a funny scene when Larry accidentally gets Moe's head stuck between a ladder and the steps break and when Curly and Larry grab some wallpaper and they cover Moe's face inside and after Mr. Beetle shows up, he gets angry after the boys doing an awful job and he decides to not only fire them, he decides to tear them limb to limb.
Then the boys enter inside Panzer's office and Panzer decides to do an experiment on Curly's head and he tells the boys that they'll be living the life of luxury as long as they live and the boys find the gorilla and they start running for their lives and there's a memorable scene when Panzer does a screen test on Curly's head and it's a bird coming out of the clock going cookoo then the boys decide to run from the professor.
This short was also the debut of former stooge soundman Edward Bernds as a director even though his next short Micro-Phonies was released before this one, on Micro-Phonies, Curly was in much better health compared to this short and the short was one of the stooge's greatest performances.
