One of the best Shemp short and Stooges shorts PERIOD!, 15 September 2003
Author: Movie Nuttball from U.S.A.

This is one of the best ones with Shemp and its one of My favorites Stooges shorts! The story is good and the actors Stanley Blystone, Gene Roth, and Emil Sitka were really good and funny! The fight scene with Shemp punching Blystone and the other familiar face is excellent and its similar to the one in Calling All Curs and Crash goes the Hash! This is a great one and its funny every time you watch it!
