They learn that the Emir of Shmo has absconded with the contraband jewel. They journey to the stronghold of Shmo where they disguise as Santa Clauses and scare the ruler into giving them the diamond.

Good Three Stooges short!
19 October 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

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!

This is a good three Stooges short. George J. Lewis, Frank Lackteen, Vernon Dent, Helen Jay, Harriette Tarler, Diana Darrin, Suzanne Ridgeway, and Ruth White all performed well. There and many funny scenes here and The Three Stooges are hilarious! There is another short very similar like this one called Malice in the Palace. I recommend to see both of these Three Stooges shorts!
