The stooges are mistaken by a gangster for the "Three Horsemen of Boulder Dam", famous football players. Hired to play for his team, they blow the big game and get it in the end. Lucille Ball has a nice part as a gun moll.
The Stooges are beggars in suits. They are hired to advertise the upcoming game at Boulder Dam in football uniforms, when they are mistaken for 3 great players by a gambler. But the trio can't turn down the big $ offer.Written by

Gangster mistake the Three Stooges for professional athletes and get them involved in a football game with big cash on the line. Here's one of the better shorts from the series with non-stop gags, although most of the gags come from the first half of the film and not the second half that deals with the game. The various misadventures inside the girl's apartment are terrific and especially they escape down the shoot.
Now available on Columbia's 2-disc collection, which features over 20 shorts.
