Trivia

The Maharaja routine performed by The Three Stooges starting 9 minutes in would later be included in their 1946 short subject, Three Little Pirates (1946) with Curly Howard again as the Maharaja. They recreated the routine once again in their 1963 feature film The Three Stooges Go Around the World in a Daze (1963) with Joe DeRita as the Maharaja. See more »

The Stooges and Ann Miller are the highlights of Time Out for Rhythm
7 February 2018 | by tavmSee all my reviews

I first read of this rare Three Stooges-Moe, Larry, and Curly-feature when reading the book "The Stooges' Lost Episodes" which loved the Stooges' routines here especially the "Maharraja of Vulgaria" one when Curly hadn't yet suffered his stroke as they say was evidenced when he later performed that in the Three Little Pirates short. Anyway, the Stooges aren't the only highlights here, tap dancer Ann Miller is introed by her glamorous legs first before we then see the rest of her in her maid outfit. No wonder Columbia gave her a long-term contract after she performed in this. Character actor Allen Jenkins Is also on hand doing fine comedy takes as well as occasionally doing a musical number as he does with Ms. Miller here. Crooner Rudy Vallee does occasionally sing with one of the numbers being with Joan Merrill who warbles a couple more solo. Besides the Stooges, Blanche Stewart and Elvira Allman also provide comic relief as secretaries Brenda and Cobina. Watch both teams during the rumba number near the end, what laughs! So on that note, I highly recommend Time Out for Rhythm for all the Stooges fans out there.
