Did You Know?

The reel where Shemp practices his dentistry was actually filmed for Merry Mavericks (1951) but was too long for inclusion as it ran, and too funny to edit or throw out. Merry Mavericks (1951) had come in ahead of time and somewhat under budget, so producer Hugh McCollum persuaded Columbia to allow him two days extra to film additional material to round it out, and used the dental school sequence to set up this short.See more »

Excellent Three Stooges short!, 14 October 2004
Author: Movie Nuttball from U.S.A.

The Three Stooges has always been some of the many actors that I have loved. I love just about every one of the shorts that they have made. I love all six of the Stooges (Curly, Shemp, Moe, Larry, Joe, and Curly Joe)! All of the shorts are hilarious and also star many other great actors and actresses which a lot of them was in many of the shorts! In My opinion The Three Stooges is some of the greatest actors ever and is the all time funniest comedy team!

A very good and different Three Stooges short. Vernon Dent, Margie Liszt, Dick Curtis, Slim Gaut, and Emil Sitka are in this one with The Stooges. I think that this one is so funny and the scenes with Dick Curtis are hilarious! I recommend this one!
