The Good, the Bad, and Shemp !!!!!!!!
2 June 2006 | by revdrcacSee all my reviews

I always loved it when the Stooges travelled to the wild & wooly west. They were definitely fish outta water when they confronted the owlhoots of the frontier west. Shemp is excellent in this short, one of 17 or so western shorts the Stooges appeared in.

Moe and Larry are as dependable as always, dishing out the slaps, oneliners & eyepokes to the bewildered cowpokes they encounter. Christine was fantastic as Nell and added great support in this one.

They just don't make western comedy like this any more. The knuckleheads made this one memorable. Good script and appropriately hammy performances. Go west, young stooge !!!
