The time of the armored car robbery was 9:30, according to the clock in the police car that receives the call reporting the crime, but when questioning Shemp at the police station later, the Police Captain demands to know what he was doing at 11:00. See more »

Now then, I gotta a couple of questions I wanna ask you!
Yes, and so of I. Did you or did not take that quarter out of my shoe last night?
On my honor, Moe I didn't do it.

Only The Ending Saves This Weak Re-Hash Of Routines
This is not one of the better Stooges efforts, with more a re-hash of comedy bits they had done in the past with Curly. Routines such as the cracker-swallowing clam in the soup was performed by Moe, who literally imitated Curly with the noises and facial gestures. Of course, Moe is no Curly so it's not funny. Been there, done that - and much better.
Christine McIntyre who, along with Vernon Dent, played in a million of these Stooges movies, plays a restaurant owner who is broke but is befriends by the boys after she bails them out of a jam with the police. The cops had accused the Stooges of being crooks on the lam. Obviously, it wasn't them, but they are dragged down to the station and given lie detector tests, which is probably the best part of the film. Anyway, "Gladys" (McIntryre) vouches for the boys and they, in turn, help her out at the café and then later go to a country house she is interested in buying or selling (I forget, to be honest). That's when we get the wild finale with the real crooks and a cleaver-wielding ghoul named "Angel" chasing our boys. Those chase scenes with the Stooges and scary characters are always funny. It's too bad the rest of the film wasn't as entertaining as the last three or four minutes.
