A professor bets one of his colleagues that he can turn the stooges into gentlemen within 60 days. With the aid of his pretty daughter, the professor tries to teach the boys proper etiquette. After many frustrating attempts, he introduces the stooges into society at a fancy party. At first things go all right, but the party soon degenerates into a wild pie fight. Written by

How would you boys like to make $1,000?
Who do you have to murder?
Oh, nothing like that. All you have to do is let me make gentlemen of you.
[the Stooges all flinch in horror]
No, no! Not that!
Our father would never forgive us.
There ain't been a gentleman in our family for fifty generations.

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.
