When one of the henchman accidentally knocks out the other with a block of wood. Cy Schindell, via archive footage, is heard saying "I'm sorry. Really, I'm sorry, I didn't mean it.". This was to cover up him saying "boss". as Tiny Brauer played Big Mike in the original version, while Frank Sully plays the part in the remake. See more »
The Three Stooges (Moe, Larry, Shemp) are boxing trainers forced by their boss Big Mike to de-condition their star prize fighter "Chopper", because the boss has bet a load of dough on the big galoot losing the match. This was one of the latter shorts by the aging Stooges which relied on recycled old footage from a previously produced film. In this case, most of the running time is taken from 1947's FRIGHT NIGHT (which had also been Shemp's first comedy with The Stooges). However, the new scenes shot for this re-issue are very funny and for my money make this redo an even better experience than FRIGHT NIGHT! New scenes include: the boss playing practical jokes on the Stooges by having them smoke exploding cigars; Moe's fingers getting jammed in a door (Moe: "I think I broke my eye-poking fingers!" ... Larry: "Good, now you can't poke us in the eyes! > POKE <- Owwww! I hadda open my big mouth!"), and Moe nervously swallowing and choking on a cigar when Big Mike sneaks up behind him. *** out of ****
