Storyline

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.

Trivia

Nita Bieber, Gloria Patrice and Ruth Godfrey filmed a scene where they impersonate The Three Stooges, a companion piece to the Stooges impersonation of the girls as ballerinas. It was edited before the short was released. The mystery of the girls wearing suits in the final scene is thus explained. See more »

Charming
14 October 2010 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Okay, with 7 other reviews, why add another one. Because for this Stooge fan, a word I never remotely associated with their work popped into my head while watching Rhythm. In my little book, this is indeed a 'charming' entry—from the wink-and-nod playing to the camera to the absolutely beautiful three girl dancers. But I especially like that sequence on the ledge where the three boys and three girls sweetly find each other more enticing than a leap off the edge, and then celebrate with a charming little dance.

Also, the typical Stooge slapstick is nicely integrated into the girls' dance numbers, especially the hep-cat number. I suspect there's more music and less knock-about because of Curly's declining health. But whatever the reason, the writers and casting director manage to compensate in charmingly unexpected fashion.
