The stooges are potters in ancient Rome during the reign of Emperor Octopus Grabus. When the emperor orders all beautiful red-headed women to be brought before him so he can select a wife, Diana, a pretty red-head, seeks refuge with the stooges. Some soldiers find Diana's hiding place and they are all brought to the palace where the stooges escape and try to pass of Curly as Diana, having broken the emperor's glasses. Their ruse fails and they're caught by the palace guards as they try to escape.

Did You Know?
This was the first of two shorts directed by frequent Stooges writer Harry Edwards, but the experience was not very pleasant. Edwards was deemed an incompetent director by the cast and crew. Edwards had a explosive attitude towards the cast saying they couldn't act, etc. It was also the only short where stuff was filmed over a period of weeks, due to this. Del Lord was brought in to shoot more footage for the film, as a result. See more
