The stooges are janitors working in the offices of Doctors Hart-Burns and Belcher. Some crooks arrive seeking medical attention after their boss has been wounded in a shoot out with the cops. Mistaken for doctors, the boys are forced to operate on the wounded crook, but instead they accidentally dump him out the window into a passing police car. The rest of the gang chases them into a store room filled with dummies where the cops finally catch the bad guys.Written by

A Gem Of A Jam may not be one of the very best short films starring The Three Stooges, but, all the same, it does contain some hilariously priceless moments of pure slapstick mayhem that will surely tickle more than just your funny-bone.
When it comes to the comical antics of Curly, Larry & Moe, our boys are in mighty good form here in a Gem Of A Jam. As expected, the face slaps, the eye-pokes, the belly wallops and the one-liner insults are all delivered fast and furious as only The Three Stooges could possibly deliver them.
Here in "Gem", Curly, Larry & Moe are after-hours office cleaners making things all spic'n'span in the workplace of Doctors Harts, Burns & Belcher.
Following Curly getting his head temporarily stuck inside a fishbowl, The Stooges' work is rudely interrupted by 3 gun-toting thugs who barge into the office and (mistaking The Stooges to be doctors) demand that they drop everything in order to remove a slug from Joe's shoulder.
Not being the sort to argue with anyone who's pointing pistols at them, The Three Stooges' silly shenanigans quickly shifts into high-gear when Joe gets dumped right out the window and Curly falls straight into a trough of liquid plaster, only to emerge as a walking statue once the plaster has completely hardened on him.
Yep. You can be sure that there are some genuine bell-laughs to be had in a Gem Of A Jam.
If you're a fan of The Three Stooges you won't be disappointed by this wild and wacky tale.
