Yes, this is a 1946 short subject featuring stooge-to-be Curly Joe DeRita. Most people will agree that DeRita added nothing to the Three Stooges and was only there because of a fleeting resemblance to Jerry "Curly" Howard. This film proves that he was never funny. DeRita is even sluggish here in his youth. He had a full head of hair, similar to Shemp Howard. He tries to imitate Lou Costello, but he just doesn't have it. As for the humor, it is the typical Jules White violence for the sake of not being boring comedy. The closing gag has Joe putting his "son" in a washing machine where lawn mower blades have replaced the agitator. Jules White at his grisliest!
