Alternate Versions

Due to its violent content, the scene where Curly uses a climbing spike to get up to the top of the telephone pole was slightly edited where the spike pokes Moe's head, eye, and ear. Though some TV stations air the scene uncut, even when the short was released to TV in 1958 as part of the syndication package. See more »

One of the All Time Great Stooge Shorts
25 February 2003 | by SargebriSee all my reviews

This is one of my favorite Stooge shorts. I especially love it when Moe disguises himself as Hitler and does a flawless imitation of the "little sign painter". The boys showed that they were doing their part for moral in the dark days of World War II.
