SOCIETY MUGS with Shemp Howard and Tom Kennedy is a near frame-for-frame remake of the classic 1938 Three Stooges comedy TERMITES OF 1938. Shemp & Tom are exterminators who are accidentally called upon when a society matron's maid dials their phone number instead of an escort service. Shemp & Tom show up dressed to the nines, not knowing that they were wanted as escorts. The fun begins after the fancy dinner, when the boys separate and proceed to violate the guests and turn the fancy house into a shambles. Although COLUMBIA continued to re-tool and remake earlier comedies that had starred other acts, they continued to produce fresh material as well for their 2-reel comedies. All in all, a decent short, but still a faint reminder of the original short w/Moe, Larry and Curly.
