A reworking of Hoi Polloi (1935); often labelled as a remake, it is not. The plots are the same, but the films' scenes are different. This film was indeed remade as Pies and Guys (1958), with Joe Besser. See more »
There's a hair in my soup.
You're crazy. That's a crack in your plate.
I never saw a crack go that way.

Well, that's neither hair nor there.

This short is indeed, like all the shorts, a classic. I couldn't help but see at the end, after watching, Moe was noticeably not himself. I've read many times about the stroke that poor Curly suffered during the making of this, and you can see in Moe's delivery of his lines that this event's eating away at his heart. I can't imagine how he must have felt when just minutes earlier his brother was being rushed away to the nearby emergency room. Moe did say in an interview,despite his inner heartbreak and not knowing if Curly was alive or dead, that "The show still must go on". And being the professionals they were, Larry and Moe finished the short without Curly. The Three Stooges were without a doubt the most amazing and groundbreaking actor/comedians of all time. And just like the old saying goes, "People like this come once every thousand years". God Bless Them, and may They Rest in Peace.
