AN ACHE IN EVERY STAKE

The Stooges portray incredibly klutzy ice men who accidentally cause Mr. Lawrence (Vernon Dent) to smash not one but two birthday cakes. When they drive Mrs. Lawrence's cook and maid to quit, the Stooges volunteer to prepare the dinner, not knowing who her husband is!

The flight of stairs used in this comedy were long a topic of discussion by fans. Their definitive location, and the story of their discovery, was reported in The Three Stooges Journal # 98 (Summer 2001) and # 99 (Fall 2001).

Partially redone as LISTEN JUDGE (1952). The turkey stuffing gags were performed 7 years earlier by Shemp Howard in his Vitaphone short subject A PEACH OF A PAIR (1934); the director of that film was Lloyd French, AN ACHE IN EVERY STAKE's screenwriter.

CALLING ALL CURS

The Stooges are veterinarians treating a rich lady's dog Garcon. Two men, posing as reporters, come to check out the Stooges' clinic. They are really dognappers who capture Garcon and hold him for a $2000 ransom. The Stooges then search for Garcon and arrive at the home of the dognappers for a showdown.
