WHO DONE IT?

The Stooges are hired as detectives to protect John Goodrich from the Phantom Gang, but are tied up, causing them to be an hour late. Before they arrive, Goodrich is snatched by The Goon, a member of the Gang. The Stooges then arrive and search the house. They find Goodrich and have a fight against the Gang, knocking them all out.

Remade as FOR CRIMIN' OUT LOUD (1956), with extensive stock footage.

Writer/director Edward Bernds originally planned this as a Curly film entitled PARDON MY TERROR, but after Curly's stroke, that draft was given to Columbia comedians Gus Schilling and Richard Lane. The original script, as written for Moe, Larry & Curly, can be found in The Three Stooges Journal # 108 (Winter 2003) and # 109 (Spring 2004).

Trivia: In an issue of the Emil Sitka Fan Club publication The Fourth Stooge, Emil's diary reveals that while Columbia provided costumes for its actors, it did not provide footwear. Emil could not afford to have his only pair of dress shoes resoled, and in the closing scene, you can see that 'Councilman Goodrich' has a hole in his right shoe.

HOLD THAT LION!

The Stooges' inheritance from their late Uncle Ambrose has been stolen by crooked investment broker Icabod Slipp. The boys go to Slipp's office to subpoena him, but he beats each of them up, rips up their subpoenas, and takes off on a train with the boys' inheritance. The Stooges trail him, but before finding him they accidentally let a lion loose on the train. The boys finally catch up to Slipp, and the chase is on.

Curly Howard, who had retired, makes a cameo in this film as a snoring passenger.
