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 »

High Noon Parody
4 September 2003 | by (St. Thomas, USVI) – See all my reviews

The Three Stooges play a triple version of Gary Cooper's role in this "High Noon" parody. In this version, the guy who plays and sings "Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling" is visible, and he gets his guitar smashed over his head for his efforts (and rightly so). In retaliation, he pulls out a miniature ukulele and continues to grate Moe's nerves. This short is not among the Stooges' best; it's just too silly.
