Trivia

The same year this short was filmed, actor Emmett Lynn (the crazed guitar-playing old coot) was cast by Charles Laughton in the iconic "Night of the Hunter" in the role of Uncle Birdie. After 2 days of filming, Laughton fired Emmett, replacing him with veteran actor James Gleason.

Outtakes of one of Emmett Lynn's "Hunter" scenes can be found on the 2-Dvd set by Criterion. See more »

not bad for a western...
11 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

I'm not a big Three Stooges western nut, but this is good fare. The running gag of the old man singing & twanging on his guitar is a good one as is his enthusiastic post-wedding celebration, smacking Moe on the head with a bag of rice.

The short does get muddy in parts, as seemingly all Shemp westerns do. The gunfight with the Noonan boys gets a bit long in the tooth, although Moe & Joe Palma rolling on the ground in fast motion is very funny. Favorite thing from this short is one of the tombstone inscriptions: Momma loved Papa, Papa loved women; Momma caught poppa with 2 girls in swimmin'.

8/10
