WHAT'S THE MATADOR?

The Stooges are out-of-work actors who manage to wrangle themselves a job putting on their gag "bullfight" act during a fiesta in Mexico. On the bus trip to Mexico City they meet a beautiful senora named Dolores, and when they run into her jealous husband at the bus stop Dolores mistakenly ends up with their suitcase instead of her own.

The Stooges search the city for Dolores, and eventually stumble on her home. They try to get their suitcase back, and end up chased by her husband. When he later sees them at the bullfight, he arranges to have a real bull released into the arena while the Stooges are doing their act.

Remade as SAPPY BULL FIGHTERS (1959) with Moe, Larry & Joe Besser.

Costar Suzanne Kaaren (Dolores) was a guest of the 1991 Three Stooges Convention in Philadelphia. See The Three Stooges Journal # 59 (Fall 1991).

THREE SMART SAPS

Wedding plans for the Three Stooges are cut short when the father of their fiancees is wrongly jailed, and the inmates take over the prison where he was the warden. Moe comes up with a plan for them to get into jail and bust the father out. After some unsuccessful attempts to get arrested, they wind up walking through the front door of the county jail. To expose the criminal operation, the Stooges go undercover as gentlemen at the inmates' formal party to take pictures as evidence.
