In one scene, Christine McIntyre discovers that Shemp Howard is not the "Cousin Basil" she thought he was, and slaps him around, then punches him and knocks him through the door. McIntyre, who was not a professional stuntwoman, was timid and had to be coaxed by Shemp into performing the scene believably. She leaned too far in when she "punched" Shemp, and actually did hit him, breaking his nose. The sequence was left in the picture. When it is watched in slow motion, Shemp can be seen falling down and opening his mouth like he was yelling in pain after the punch. See more »

A hilarious Stooge effort, one of Shemp and Emil Sitka's best.
I love this short. It's probably most famous for Emil Sitka's, repeated Stooge straightman, line "Hold hands, you lovebirds.". Some of my favorite moments are when Moe and Shemp are stuck in the phone booth, Shemp's critique of his student, and Christine McIntyre thinking Shemp's a cousin. You have to see this one, if you love Shemp, Sitka, and the Three Stooges.
