Goofs

During Shemp's "death scene" after the poisoning, actress Christine McIntyre has a hard time keeping a straight face. (I suppose one could argue that her character was delighted over the soon-to-be-successful murder, but to me it looks like genuine out-of-character smirking.) See more »

Three Stooges detectives take on murderers and "The Goon."
9 December 1998 | by trivia-2See all my reviews

One of the very best Three Stooges shorts ever. A spooky house full of evil guys and "The Goon" challenge the Alert Detective Agency's best men. Shemp is in top form in the famous in-the-dark scene. Emil Sitka provides excellent support in his Mr. Goodrich role, as the target of a murder plot. Before it's over, Shemp's "trusty little shovel" is employed to great effect. This 16 minute gem moves about as fast as any Stooge's short and packs twice the wallop. Highly recommended.
