While filming the scene where the bazooka of soot backfires in Moe Howard's face, the special effects man put too much pressure on it and when it backfired, Moe got some large chunks of soot lodged underneath his eyelids, and it took several hours to clean them out. Moe suffered a similar injury in 1939's "Oily to Bed, Oily to Rise" when he got what resembled oil shot under his eyelids. See more »

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!
