  • Policeman Stooges have to track down a serial killer to keep their jobs.

    9.0
    A fun Stooges short that is something of a forgotten piece. The gags are fun and fast-paced, but nothing in this short really sets it apart as a classic.



    The beginning is pretty fun, especially the verbal gags about the "wooden leg". Connie Cezon provides some great support as a female pickpocket, mainly her ogling of Shemp. Ferris Taylor is nothing special in his role of chief BA Copper.



    The second reel paves the way for more vebal schtick and a gunfight climax. Benny Rubin sticks to his typical ethnic parodies, but falls flat portraying an organ grinder with an English accent. Phil Arnold is a major plus as a struggling actor using lots of large words, which leads to great verbal banter with the Stooges. The climax with Murray Alper as the killer is very long and overdone, and really not a good way to conclude the film. A pretty decent example.moreless
