The stooges are tailors, and are heavily in debt to the Skin & Flint finance company. When the boys read about the big reward for a fugitive robber, they think it could be the answer to their problems. The bank robber conveniently ducks into their shop and leaves a suit with a safe combination. After his girl friend fails to retrieve it, the robber returns with gang and a wild fight ensues. The boys miss out on the reward but wind up with the crook's bankroll and can pay their creditors.Written by

Terry Hargan's bankroll mysteriously reappears in his secret compartment in his sport jacket at the end, after originally his girlfriend had pulled it out to (re)buy his jacket and pants, then (apparently) pocketed the rest of it. See more »
That is the toughest spot I ever tackled!

Three Blind Mice
Written by Thomas Ravenscroft See more »
Lary, Moe, and Shemp are tailors in debt to the Skin & Flint finance corporation which is threatening to repossess their equipment. The radio announces a large reward for the capture of fugitive safe cracker Hargan. Hargan sneaks into the shop to hide as a mannequin while pursued by Detective Sharp. Hargan manages to escape but he leaves behind a piece of paper with a safe combination. He sends his girlfriend Flossie to retrieve it.
The boys try their best but it doesn't have the same slapstick hilarity as with Curley. The shredded coat bit isn't that funny at first but it gets much funnier when the guy returns. It does get into hilarity when the three goons come into the shop. It's just so stupid that it gets to be funny. It's funny when other characters are even stupider than the Stooges.
