Storyline

The stooges are discharged from the army and go to see their fiancée, but find they have been dispossessed and the wedding is off until they find a home. The boys have trouble finding a vacant apartment so they set up housekeeping in a vacant lot. Their housing problems seem to be solved until a farmer destroys their new home with a tractor. The stooges then build a house of their own, but the girls aren't impressed with the one room mansion and walk out on them. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

Trivia

Curly Howard's deteriorating health due to having experienced a succession of small strokes is quite obvious, as is evident in this film by his halting speech and slowed reactions. He would only make three more Three Stooges films before finally succumbing to a massive stroke during filming of the third one, ending his career. He did make an uncredited cameo in a 1947 Stooges short with Shemp, but retired after that. He would go on to suffer two more massive strokes, the final one ending his life in 1952. See more »

Good Three Stooges short!
26 September 2004 | by Movie NuttballSee all my reviews

The Three Stooges has always been some of the many actors that I have loved. I love just about every one of the shorts that they have made. I love all six of the Stooges (Curly, Shemp, Moe, Larry, Joe, and Curly Joe)! All of the shorts are hilarious and also star many other great actors and actresses which a lot of them was in many of the shorts! In My opinion The Three Stooges is some of the greatest actors ever and is the all time funniest comedy team!

I think this Three Stooges short is a very good one and really is an underrated one in My opinion. Judy Malcolm, Ethelreda Leopold, and Doris Houck are in it. Also there are appearances by Symona Boniface and Al Thompson. The Stooges are very good in this one. Curly is very different and very funny as well. There are many hilarious things in this one. If you are a Three Stooges fan watch this one!
