As much as I love Curly, I never complain seeing Shemp in a Three Stooges film.
Shemp made me laugh almost as much as Curly, sometimes even more. He had tremendous footwork, able to make great pratfalls or dance around like some rubber-legged Muhammad Ali-type boxer. He shows it early on in this story by collapsing while walking out of the doctor's office.
The only solution to Shemp's ailing leg is a trip out West, says his doctor. Make sense? No, but these stories never did. In this case, it gave The Boys a chance to make some laughs by being cowboys.
Except for the first minute-and-a-half, this is all Old West gags and some of them are still clever. Almost all the action takes place in a saloon, where we get shootouts, crooked card games, jail breakouts, the U.S. Calvary (which "has never been late in the history of motion pictures," as stated in here) and more!
Jock Mahoney, who starred in a short-lived but excellent 1950s TV western called "Yancy Derringer," guest stars in here as "The Arizona Kid." He's billed in here as "Jacques O'Mahoney."
This was a very enjoyable Three Stooges film, and a very fast-moving one.
