Alternate Versions

The public domain version of this had the Columbia logo cut out, instead music plays over the black screen and then cuts to the title card. Also the "The End" slide has it replaced with a later version most likely from the Shemp era, although that same slide with music was seen on the 1956 short "Creeps". See more »

Quite possible the funniest short they did.
30 November 2003 | by cptchipjewSee all my reviews

Disorder in the Court is truly one of the funniest shorts The Three Stooges ever made. The timing and delivery of the jokes was pure perfection for Larry, Moe and Curly. Some of the "special effects" were pure hilarity, such as the scene where Larry flings the bow from his violin, removing the stenographer's toupee.

This short is truly a testament to brilliance of their slapstick. Almost 70 years later, and The Stooges are still being televised and sold on video and DVD.

For anybody that wants to familarize themselves with the Stooges, or for any fan that wants 20 minutes of unstoppable laughter, Disorder in the Court is perfect.
