A Truly "CLASSIC" Stooges moment, featuring the underrated LARRY!
2 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

When Moe jumps back in sheer horror at the unexpected sight of Larry (who just got plastered with a bag of white baking flour all over his face and hair) and then asks the frightfully scary looking stooge at the end of the short: "how much would you charge to haunt a house?" -- and Larry, assuming that Moe must be serious, and not wanting to pass on a good job, responds by asking -- "how many rooms?"; Moe angrily strikes poor Lawrence across the face, making for a truly classic Stooge moment! I laughed at this moment as hard as I laughed at all the great Curly classic moments in other shorts! Larry's contribution to the overall comedic effect of the Stooges is subtle, but very real, as evidenced by this classic moment! See also the short where they are celebrating the fountain of youth that they just invented and are enjoying some cake; Lawrence tries to steal some icing off the top of the cake but he gets caught by Moe as he is about to swallow it, so he wisely decides to ask Moe if he wants a taste as he reaches his hand out to Moe, as if Moe would lick it off his hand -- of course, Moe, looking supremely indignant, is totally mortified and immediately wallops Lawrence with a smack across his outreached hand, pushing the icing and cake into his face while saying, "No, You Keep It" -- the sound effect of this smack across Larry's face (not to mention the sight of all that cake and icing smearing into Lawrence's nose) is so loud and has such a great echo effect that it adds to the humor of the moment beautifully!
