Storyline

Larry, Moe, and Curly Joe work for an editor at a Boston wildlife conservation magazine. They make such a mess of the pressroom that their publisher gets rid of them by sending them out west to stop the slaughter of buffalo. Upon their arrival they find themselves being sought after by every notorious gunslinger in history, including Wyatt Earp, Wild Bill Hickcock, and Jesse James. Luckily, pistol-packing Annie Oakley, who has fallen in love with the handsome editor, agrees to protect them against the bad guys. Written by Robert Lynch <docrlynch@yahoo.com>

Did You Know?

Trivia

Emil Sitka's final film appearance with The Three Stooges. A regular in their films for decades, Sitka would actually officially become a Stooge in the early 1970s after Larry Fine was forced to retire, but he never made a movie in this role. See more »

Goofs

When the Stooges and Cabot are riding off in a wagon and the 'bad guys' come up on them in the armed stagecoach. Several shots from the armed stage hit the wagon though the stage and wagon they are approaching head on. The Gatling gun is firing out the side of the armed stage and could not possibly hit the wagon, even when pointed as far forward as possible. See more »

Quotes

Jesse James: Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fastest gun of all?
Narrator: Jesse James, you was best, til this new boy came out west.
Jesse James: That's a lie!

Possibly the best Stooges feature film

Some grown-up dialog -- "Look at all those fighting Indians" (and if you don't get the joke, then you never heard the original story about the Custer memorial) -- far-above-average acting and just generally good production values elevate this Stooges movie.

Of course there is the usual Stooges schtick, without which we would feel terribly bereft, and Joe DeRita shows he is a superb Stooge.

Emil Sitka played three parts! As is mentioned elsewhere, he had been a "Fourth Stooge" for so many pictures, he was slated to become a Third Stooge, to replace the ill Larry Fine, but no movie ever got produced.

That is a shame for him and for us, for us who loved the Stooges, and especially for us who loved him.

Most of the cast members, except for Adam West, were not very well known, but they showed some understated acting ability that proved their talent and demonstrated how good a Stooges movie could be.

The guys were lucky. So many other comics and comedy groups or teams declined, but their last picture might well be their best.

I hope everyone will get a chance to see this, for the sheer fun of it, and for the chance to evaluate the Three Stooges and their work.
