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 »

Weak effort
4 February 2002 | by (San Ramon, CA) – See all my reviews

This short has the most basic plot ever, and the fighting throughout this short drags on and gets tiring after a while. Also, Moe's wrath seems to be extremely limited in this short, another strike against it. The fighting does have funny moments which helps, but not enough.

Grade: D+
