Overview

The plot to this particular Three Stooges short actually makes some sort of sense! The boys are singing waiters, known as the "Hilarious Hash Slingers," at Ye Colonial Inn. Two doctors who are having lunch are delighted at their antics and think that perhaps they can cheer up a sick little girl who is pining for her father. The father, a bank cashier, disappeared with three hundred thousand dollars' worth of bonds and is believed kidnapped. The Stooges show up at the hospital dressed like little girls but while their act makes the doctors and nurse laugh, the child barely notices. So the Stooges decide to find the girl's father, armed with the following description: he's 40 years old, 5'10" in his stocking feet, has a bald spot and an anchor tattoo, and can yodel. The boys accost a number of strangers on the street, checking for bald spots, pulling off shirt sleeves to look for tattoos and measuring for height. Eventually their search narrows when they hear yodeling. It's just a radio, but it happens to be coming from the room where the father is being held captive. The Stooges find the father and overpower the crook who's present, but before they can make their escape, the rest of the gang shows up. In the nick of time, they take the dumbwaiter to the basement. They try to find a way out and battle the crooks, who have found them, in a hilarious set of blackouts as lights keep getting turned on and off. The bad guys are finally vanquished and the little girl is reunited with her father. Back at Ye Colonial Inn they watch the Stooges sing a song (pie fight included).

    Another wild zany comedians

    The 3 Stooges are truly wild & zany when it comes to slapstick comedy. They insult every intellectual pretensions & skewer the silly fads of their day. Tragically, one can see Curly Howard already was sick & less able to maintain his brand of comedy. Still, for those who thoroughly enjoy the insane nonsense these guys put out, the shorts are still just as funny today as they were then.

    It's almost like rediscovering them all over again...

    I read this year that all of the Three Stooges shorts have been in the process of being released in pristine condition and in chronological order.

    Because of that, I picked up this set as a 'test case' which (along with the 1937-1939 set) represents the golden period of this great comedy trio...and I'm so glad I did!

    Channel 11 in St. Louis started broadcasting all of the Stooges shorts in 1973 when I was 12. It was the first time any of us seventh grade boys had ever seen Curly and, of course, it turned our world upside down. EVERYBODY started to imitate the great Curly Howard - and my love affair with the Three Stooges began.

    Even at age 48, the timeless antics and silliness resonates. They were part of my youth and these are STILL enjoyable to watch.

    I hope to pick up ALL of the editions prior to Curly's stroke in 1945 when his health took a very visible turn for the worse. Although the episodes with Shemp aren't as funny, they're still great entertainment when Hollywood KNEW how to produce slapstick, innocent fun for people of all ages!

    THIS is slapstick

    The Stooges were the ultimate in slapstick back in the 30's thru the fifties. Although many episodes simply ended without much of a resolution this was absurdist comedy in its truest sense. No one in their right mind slaps their friends across the face, pokes their eyes etcetera, but that's what's so brilliant about the Stooges. They're an inspiration to comedy after them Peter Sellers comes to mind. Much can be learned about their tactics through books and these DVD's and they're released in their original chronological order. Get your Nyuks and buy this for yourself or any Stooge fan you may know. Or be a knucklehead!
