An Interesting Shemp Solo Short

Shemp and Daphne play two actors, Cook and Butler, who happened to get canned at the same time a wealthy socialite and her husband need a new cook and butler for a party. You can guess what happens from here. The short is great, with the female playing the violent leader role, although she takes her share of bumps, too. Shemp is great, as always, especially when stuffing a turkey and trying to wear a tuxedo shirt that won't stop rolling up. It's interesting that all of the gags that Shemp uses while stuffing the turkey predate the Stooges' (Moe, Larry, Curly) use of the same gags.

The film is a bit hard to find, as most of Shemp's solo stuff is, but if you can track it down it's worth a buy. Seeing a young Shemp do the boxer shuffle (which he calls "the IL' razzmatazz"), get slapped around by his female companion who is half his size, and getting drunk while trying to figure out which barrel contains brandy would be worth any price!
