  • Determined to cash in on an insurance policy, Curly pretends to be a lunatic who believes he's a dog. Things fall through when the doctor wants to operate on his brain.moreless

    The spotlight is on Curly. He really carries this film, particuarly his abilities to express both wild animal impressions and rough physical stunts, as well as some great one-liners and verbal gags mpre commonly assiociated with Shemp, such as "raising a dollar from a cent."



    Moe and Larry both have fair bits of material to perform, mostly avoiding Cy Schindell as they run wildly throughout a busy hospital. Dudly Dickerson shines in a brief apperance as a spooked orderly. Moe's stunt double, Johhny Kascier, also shows off some rough stunt work as the orderly who is constantly being plowed into.

    The very much underrated Lynton Brent has little comedy to do, but stil holds his own as a shyster villian. A pretty impressive entry,and one of the many classics of 1940.moreless
