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 Mitch Shapiro <>

Familiar Territory, But Still Has Its Moments
13 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
