  • Trivia

    • Early in the film, Mr. Smellington violently throws a basket at Curly, and Curly barely catches it. Just a few moments later, Curly pulls an undmaged pie out of the basket. It is unlikely that the pie could have survived such rough handling.

    • Although the Stooges are on a 20-story building in the middle of a city when they plan to jump and kill themselves, trees can be seen in the background in some rooftop shots.

    • The yell of the offscreen man hit by the hammer is the distinctive yell of actor Bud Jamison, who supported the Stooges in many of their films of the 30s and early 40s. The yell was obviously dubbed in from another film, as Jamison died in 1944.

  • Quotes

  • Notes

    • The Stooges dress as ballerinas to introduce the girl's ballet number. A similar introductory scene with the girls dressed as the Stooges was filmed but cut from the final movie.

    • The song Swingeroo Joe (played by Walsh and the Stooges) is actually called Chambers Boogie.

    • This film's working title was "Acting Up".

  • Allusions

    • The "medical examination" sketch that the Stooges perform is modelled after a similar routine performed by Buster Keaton and Monty Collins in the Columbia short General Nuisance (1941).
