The Screen Gems television print mattes out Christine McIntyre's cleavage when her character goes into the office to find her grandfather murdered. However, it's not known if the theatrical version is unaltered. See more »
A very surprising pedigree...and well worth seeing.
"Pardon My Terror" was originally written for the Three Stooges. However, Curly's health was a mess, as he has a series of strokes and so the studio made it with Gus Schilling and Richard Lane. Incidentally, a few years later, the Stooges (with Shemp) remade this film as "Who Done It?".
The story begins with a murder or kidnapping...you aren't sure which. Private detectives Schilling and Lane are called to investigate.
At times, you will realize just how much like a Three Stooges film this is. For example, one of them is very Moe-like, the other very much like Curly in the dialog. As for Larry, both actors apparently split up his lines. And, at times, they even act a bit like the Stooges...particularly when there's physical violence...you can REALLY imagine Moe doing this.
So is it any good? Yes. If you love the Stooges, you'll likely love this. As for me, I am not a huge Stooge fan but enjoyed the film...and loved the ending!
