Goofs

When the prosecuting attorney stands up to suggest Curly testify to what he saw (after sitting down on Moe and Larry's tic-tac-toe game), he clearly is not moving his mouth to the words, which one should be able to tell when he turns his head to the right. See more »

Quotes

Defense attorney: Mr. Howard, kindly tell the court what you know about the murder of Kirk Robbin.
Curly: [to the Judge] Well, it was like this, Mr. Court...
Defense attorney: Address the judge as "Your Honor".
Curly: [to the Judge] Well, it was like this, my honor...
Defense attorney: "Your honor", not "My honor".
Curly: Why? Don't you like him?

Disorder in the court!
28 July 2007 | by Little-MikeySee all my reviews

Why Columbia Pictures chose to let this classic fall into public domain while maintaining and renewing its ownership of "Woman Haters" is truly a mystery to me.

The result of Columbia Pictures' not-so-wise logic is that this short has been appearing and reappearing on budget videos and later on budget DVD compilations, usually coupled with "Brideless Grooms" (which was pretty good) and "Malace in the Palace" (which was OK).

This comedy short is truly a classic. The slapstick is non-stop and it is impossible to say who really stole the scenes.

Was it Curly when he took the stand? ("Raise your hand, take off your hat, put your hand here") Or was it Suzanne Kaaren, with her million dollar legs? (Yes, she really had her legs insured for a million dollars.) The Stooges also show off their musical talent which translated to musical comedy. (Did the late great Spike Jones get his idea from this film?) A laugh riot for all...
