In Days of old when a stooge was bold?
11 February 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Some years later this Three Stooges short subject was remade as Knutsy Knights with the same cast just about. I guess we can call this the director's cut. It's also rated a couple of notches higher than the remake.

Moe, Larry, and Shemp play a pair of wandering minstrels who befriend Jock Mahoney, a poor, but humble blacksmith in love with King Arthur's daughter the fair princess Elaine played by Christine McIntyre. She loves him, but it's that class thing.

Who does want to marry her is the evil Black Prince Vernon Dent who plans to usurp Arthur himself once he's in the family. Not that I'd look to Moe, Larry, and Shemp for aid and assistance, but they're the blacksmith and the princess have. And they do come through, kind of, sort of.

Some nice gags, especially that cake which seems to have the storage capacity of a TARDIS.
