Set in the old west, the stooges become marshals in a town with a high death rate for lawmen. The boys set out prevent a marriage between the villain Blackie and the heroine Nell, who's father Blackie has kidnapped. The stooges manage to defeat Blackie and his henchmen, but when Nell's father learns she promised to marry Curly if he could save her, he decides death would be a preferable fate. Written by

Sticks And Stones Will Break My Bones But Names.......
This was a very funny episode with a lot of laughs, which included insults, lots of action, a ridiculous romance and all kinds of goofy things.
Here's an example of the names and name-calling in just the first six minutes of this Three Stooges western episode, which takes place in "Deadman's Gulch:"
"Badlands Blackie, Skullbone Pass, Coney Island Curly, Mashed Potato Head, Over-sized polecat, egghead, dirty double-crosser, skunk, porcupine, dummy, numb-skull, rat" and "old billy-goat." Yeah, Moe is responsible for most of the insults.
Curly is in his prime here, complete with squeaky voice, a bunch "nyuks" and gobble-gobble sounds and good physical slapstick.
If Curly can capture Blackie and save Nell's father, she'll marry him.
Good luck, Curly!
