  • Moe and Larry fake a photo of a flying saucer to win a contest and end up in jail. This leaves Joe to snap a picture of a real one.

    A Stooges Cinderella story. You really have to root for Joe the underdog in this one. It also has a very happy ending, often uncommon for a Stooges film. Moe and Larry act as villians, demonstrating a wonderful two-man chemistry. Gail Bonney is perfect as their trashy, chain-drinking aunt. Their belittling of Joe is sad and painful, making Joe's revenge all the more sweeter. The bit where Joe thinks that deepsea divers are Martians, and his antics in attempting to take photographs are worth some laughter. The alien effects are lackluster, but what can you expect? This was the final short filmed, and an enjoyable one at that.
