The Boys Just Sang For The 'Halibut'
14 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was unusual in that there was only one other actor in this movie besides the Stooges.

Actor Gene Roth wasn't a name I recognized but I sure remembered his voice as a guy who had played villains more than once in Three Stooges films. He was a big guy with a gruff voice, like Vernon Dent who starred in many Stooges films. When posting this review, I looked up Roth's resume and it's amazing; the man did a lot of work with many guest shots on very popular TV shows in the 1950s and 1960s.

Anyway, here we have the old microfilm-hidden-in-the-watermelon angle, something I've seen before in some previous Stooges war movies (or I've just seen this movie several times and didn't remember). Roth plays a Russian spy named "Mr. Bortch" who hid the film and uses the boys to carry the melons on board a ship. There, they wind up stowaways and all the gags are what happens in the small room they are in.

They pass the time getting seasick, banging either other on the head or making corny jokes like:

"We were known as 'The Fish Market Duet.' "

The'Fish Market Duet'?

"Yeah, we sang for the halibut!"

Anyway, the real action starts when the boys figure out their friend is not whom they think he is....and the fight is on!
