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 <>

Did You Know?


One of four shorts from The Three Stooges to fall into the public domain after their copyright was accidentally not renewed in the 1960s. The other three are Disorder in the Court (1936), Brideless Groom (1947) and Malice in the Palace (1949). That is why these four shorts are always featured on low-priced Stooges videos and DVDs and are never featured on any legit Stooges compilations. See more »


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 »

The Three Stooges at their very best!!!!
21 April 2000 | by (Brooklyn, NY. (Where I'm from originally.)) – See all my reviews

I've been a fan of The Three Stooges for as long as I could remember. Shemp rules! In this episode our heroes play tailors who are trying to pay off a debt, and they are pursued by ruthless gangsters.

The scene where Moe, Larry, and Shemp beat up the gangsters was one of their greatest moments, ever! I grew up watching comedy teams of the past and back then and even now I'll always think The Three Stooges are funny! I also like Laurel and Hardy and The Marx Brothers, too!

I have other favorite Stooges episodes, but this one tops them all! I give it 5 out of 5 stars!
