Trivia

Scotland Yard scene is lifted from "The Hot Scots" (1948). The rest of this short mostly consists of footage from "Crime on Their Hands" (1948). See more »

Goofs

The inter-cut old/new footage of Shemp does not blend. Old footage has him dressed neatly, with a nicely knotted tie, and buttoned vest and suit jacket. New footage has the tie loosely knotted, and vest and jacket unbuttoned; he is about 20 lbs. heavier. See more »

Good one!
14 June 2004 | by Movie NuttballSee all my reviews

The Three Stooges has always been some of the many actors that I have loved. I love just about every one of the shorts that they have made. I love all six of the Stooges (Curly, Shemp, Moe, Larry, Joe, and Curly Joe)! All of the shorts are hilarious and also star many other great actors and actresses which a lot of them was in many of the shorts! In My opinion The Three Stooges is some of the greatest actors ever and is the all time funniest comedy team!

This Three Stooges short is an excellent one. Kenneth MacDonald and Christine McIntyre are good together in this one and also in their separate scenes. Cy Schindell was also good. The Stooges are as funny as ever! There is another Three Stooges short very similar like this one called Crime on Their Hands which it has an alternate ending.
