Episode Summary

EDIT

The Stooges go overboard wrecking a hotel room and incurring charges, after winning a contest and what they think is $50,000, but turns out to be $4.76 after taxes. They plan to marry rich widows, who are really gold diggers themselves, for their money, but are soon discovered.

  • Curly wins $50,000 in a radio contest and soon the Stooges start to live on easy street. But gold-digging widows and the IRS have other plans.

    This always has been and always will be one of my all-time favorite Stooges films. The Stooges are top-notch, and pull every slap, eyepoke, and silly routine off with grace and dexterity. The highlights are undoubtably the opening scenes, involving the replacement of maple syrup with sticky glue. Seeing Larry dump boiling water on Moe's face is painful, but also hilarious. Curly's antics and one-liners are funnier yet, especially his slogan for Stix-Fast glue.

    The second reel is a bit slower in pace, but is stuffed with zany hilarity, everything from breaking an antique bed to smashing a Ming vase, to soaking three philandering widows with ice. Curly squirting champagne out of his ears is enough to crack me up. Don't miss this Three Stooges classic!!moreless
