The stooges are actors who can't seem to find a job, so they decide to jump off a high building and end it all. On the roof top they meet three girl dancers with the same idea. Before they can jump, they meet a millionaire Broadway producer who hires them all for his next show. The rehearsal goes so well that he doubles their salary, but it all comes to naught when they discover that the "producer" is an escaped patient from Dr. Dippy's retreat. Written by Mitch Shapiro <>

The pill gag was originally written to have Curly Howard pop the pills into his own mouth, but his physical coordination was poor due to his failing heath. The gag, then, had to be changed and Moe Howard ended up popping the pills into Curly's mouth. See more »

Excellent Three Stooges short!
20 June 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

The Three Stooges has always been some of the many actors that I have loved. I love just about every one of the shorts that they have made. I love all six of the Stooges (Curly, Shemp, Moe, Larry, Joe, and Curly Joe)! All of the shorts are hilarious and also star many other great actors and actresses which a lot of them was in many of the shorts! In My opinion The Three Stooges is some of the greatest actors ever and is the all time funniest comedy team!

I have always liked this Three Stooges short. Its hilarious, it has very good acting, it has three beautiful actresses Doria Patrice, Ruth White, Nita Bieber which dance incredibly in this short film. The scenes where the Stooges play the instruments are funny and the music is fantastic! This is an excellent one! One of My favorites!
