Great one!
11 March 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I like this one and this is one of My favorite ones with the Three Stooges! I think Christine McIntyre was as good always! All of the actors were good which included Herbert Evans, Charles Knight, Jimmy Logan, Theodore Lorch, and George Pembroke! I like the spooky theme of this one like some of the Three Stooges shorts! It has a good mystery to it! The Stooges especially Moe are hilarious in Hot Scots! One of the funniest parts in the short is when Moe and Christine McIntyre were dancing and she was giving the Earl's treasures to Theodore Lorch in disguise! One other part in it is when the Stooges introduce themselves to the Earl and Shemp is getting knocked on the head by Moe's cane! The Stooges Hot Scots is a hilarious spooky Three Stooges Short! Like some other spooky type Three Stooges shorts this is a great Three Stooges short to watch over again around Halloween time!
