Trivia

Larry Fine's autobiography contains a photograph of Curly Howard as a chef in a deleted scene from this film. Curly had suffered a stroke a few years earlier and had left the act. He had clearly lost weight, and his face was disguised with a huge handlebar mustache. See more »

Quotes

Moe: There's only one 100-carat diamond, and it comes from Rootin Tootin's Tomb.
Shemp: That's government property.
Moe: Right, and if we return it, we'll get a big reward.
Larry: Yeah! Maybe fifty-thousand bucks. Boy, with that kind of money, we could rent a one-room apartment in Hollywood... maybe.

Malice in the Palace
20 October 2005 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite Shemp shorts, I think other fans would agree that this is one of the classics.

This takes place in the middle east where the boys are cooks. When two very important treasure hunters come in with a map for King Rutan-Tutan's diamond, they are very optimistic and ask the boys for their help. The boys agree and serve a dinner to the men, Larry being the head chief is in the kitchen alone with his two pets, a dog and a cat. When the boys and the men are discussing the plan, they hear the dog and cat screaming from a fight, and you know the assumption. But then something else goes wrong, the men find out that the diamond has already been taken and instead of running to retrieve it, they start crying. Moe takes advantage with Larry and Shemp and go to get the diamond back themselves.

10/10
