Did You Know?


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 »

Hiliarious! The Laughs Are Big!
16 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I bought The Three Stooges Collection, Volume Seven, I was finally able to see this short film, and what did I think of it? Let me tell you what I thought of it, I thought that this was hilarious, the laughs are big all throughout this short! This is one of the last great Stooge shorts, because except for a few more after this one, everything seemed to be going down hill. This is one of the greatest Stooge shorts of their later years, and it is also one of the funniest Stooge shorts with Shemp! And also, this is probably one of the funniest Stooge shorts overall! And considering that I own this on DVD, like I mentioned above, I can watch this whenever I want!

Some people may not agree with me on this, but I think that out of all of the years the Stooges made short films, the weakest was probably 1956, the second being 1954. Because in 1954, there were only two shorts made that were not remakes of earlier ones, this was one of them, the other is Income Tax Sappy. Whereas in 1956, there were no original shorts made that year, all of them were remakes. For the love of god why where they? WHY?! But anyway, this short is still hysterical all the same!

You are probably going to find this hysterical if you are a fan of the Three Stooges, because it is fill with a lot of very big laughs! Well all in all, this is one very hysterical Three Stooges short film that has become another favorite of mine! Watch this some time, because you will find it hysterical!
