  • After Ichabod Slipp steals their inheritance money, the Stooges track him down to a theater, and aim to get their dough back.

    Because the Stooges were becoming old, and Shemp's health was failing, stock footage became commonplace in the 1950's Stooge shorts. This short, although it has stock footage, deserves to be a classic in its own right.



    Much of the material in the opening five minutes is all old material from 1947's "Hold That Lion!". The material is not as funny the secind time around, but luckily, we don't have long to wait before the new stuff kicks in.



    The theater sequences are a riot! The Stooges get plenty of time to run wildly around, and Kenneth MacDonald and Tom Kennedy both get in on the action. The fight scene is very long, but does contain numerous chances for Moe to take physical punishmant and Shemp to use some great one-liners. The ending is silly and surreal, but also hilarious. If you can track it down, it's worth it.moreless
