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.

Very good Three Stooges short! Christine McIntyre and Dick Curtis are great in this short!
30 September 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!

This one is a very good Three Stooges western short. The Stooges are really good. Christine McIntyre and Dick Curtis put on a great show here. She looks excellent and she puts on a great performance as a pitiful character. Curtis looks good and different without his trademark mustache. His Blackie character is a great villain. Also appearing are Hank Bell, Steve Clark, Budd Fine, Joe Garcia, Ethan Laidlaw, Blackie Whiteford, and Victor Travers. I recommend this Three Stooges short!
