Not a good ending to Jules White's career
1 March 2016 | by (Chicora, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

The GIRLIE WHIRLS was Columbia's final attempt to create a new series of two-reelers after the Stooges left the shorts department in 1957, when they completed their final filmed short, FLYING SAUCER DAFFY. Unfortunately, this new series produced only one two-reeler, TRICKY CHICKS, which is the low point in Jules White's swan song when he left Columbia in 1958 when studio head and tyrant Harry Cohn passed away.

Muriel Landers is the star of this dreadful short, but she would be better known for the co-starring role she had in SWEET AND HOT with the Stooges. Landers is a nightclub singer who is mistakenly suspected of being an enemy agent, by two FBI men (Dick Wessel and William Leslie). Pretty much, that's the whole plot. Even Benny Rubin shows up doing an unfunny portrayal of a Texan millionaire. Boy, Jules was really slumming with this one.
