Alternate Versions

The part where dozens of golfballs fall out of Curly's pants was cut from the "Three Smart Saps" DVD, which is part of the "Three Stooges" collection courtesy of Columbia/Tristar Home Video. The scene only ended after Moe bops Curly on the head, and the rest of the scene was cut out, too. However, this short was re-released on DVD in October of 2007 completely uncut (and properly restored/remastered) as part of the "Three Stooges Collection Volume 1: 1934-1936" DVD set. See more »

it really is one of the best 3 stooges short
18 January 2006 | by DenebSee all my reviews

this is definitely one of my favourite 3 stooges short. i've watched it over and over again and laugh out loud every single time.

i watched 3 stooges as a kid every Saturday morning with my dad, and am only just rediscovering them. watching them now, i didn't think i would like them, as i've grown up and my tastes have changed -- and it's true -- i love the 3 stooges now!

the title is a little misleading, as most of the action occurs on the golf course and not with the stooges' job as beer delivery men.

one thing that makes this short so good is that the stooges split up and create havoc on the golf course on their own, in their own equally funny way. this lets Larry and Curly, for instance, make trouble without Moe there to stop them.

my favourite line in this short has to be when the stooges noisily approach a man who is just about to tee off, and the golfer asks them to be quiet - and Moe replies: "oh, you've got secrets, eh?"
