Last Shemp Solo Short
9 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Shemp is a car salesman (a great occupation for him) who cannot get to his wedding on time and keeps getting in scrapes with the same couple through no fault of his own. This is the final Shemp Howard short before he rejoined his brother Moe and Larry Fine to become "the Third Stooge". In this short, Shemp seems to be a bit restrained and we do not get many of his hilarious ad libs. Not that he plays it straight, but he is nowhere as wild as in the previous year's "Mr. Noisy". Dick Curtis is Shemp's nemesis, while Vernon Dent and Emil Sitka contribute their welcome supporting performances. Okuda and Watz, in their book on Columbia comedies, consider this short to be one of the best in the Shemp series. It is pleasant and fast moving, but it does seem to soften both Shemp's character and the slapstick a bit.
