Genie in a Lamp...., 24 December 2014
Author: simeon_flake

I think this short sets the record for number of uses of the broken glass sound effect. A classic 1951 effort by Edward Bernds--but then again, with one big exception (Merry Mavericks), Mr. Bernds didn't direct a bad short during his tenure with Moe, Larry and Shemp.

And I'll state that I don't mind Shemp calling the Genius of the Lamp "Amos." Believe me, when it comes to portrayals of African-Americans in old movies, I've seen much worse.

That image of Shemp in his zoot suit also ranks as one of Shemp's greatest stooge moments. And, the short is aided by the always welcome presence of exasperated straightman, Vernon Dent.

Overall--if you like Shemp--then "Three Arabian Nuts" should definitely be up your alley.
