The stooges are tailors, and are heavily in debt to the Skin & Flint finance company. When the boys read about the big reward for a fugitive robber, they think it could be the answer to their problems. The bank robber conveniently ducks into their shop and leaves a suit with a safe combination. After his girl friend fails to retrieve it, the robber returns with gang and a wild fight ensues. The boys miss out on the reward but wind up with the crook's bankroll and can pay their creditors. Written by

When Shemp is hung onto the rotating suit hanger, as he punches and kicks the bad guys the sound is accelerated indicating the shot was filmed at a slow action speed, and later projected in fast motion. See more »
That is the toughest spot I ever tackled!

Shemp, give me a hand here!
I can't now. I gotta finish my pants!

The Stooges, in this short, are "The Pip Boys: Lary, Moe & Shemp." (Yeah, that's the way they spelled Larry on their front door. They are tailors and sell new and second-hand clothes.
The story involves the boys trying not to be foreclosed and a bank robber who is on the loose. If the Stooges can somehow catch the crook and get the reward money, they could stay in business.
Like a number of these shorts involving Shemp - who I did really like and think was funny - a lot of the routines are re-hashed stuff that were done in prior "Curly episodes." Nonetheless, Shemp adds his touches.
Also similar to many, this short only really starts cooking the last 5-6 minutes when chaos usually erupts. In this case, it's at the store when the crook and his pals return to look for a missing safe combination and some cash stolen out of his sports-coat.
Overall, a "fair" episode, but not a whole lot we haven't seen before.
