HALF-WITS HOLIDAY

Two professors take a page from George Bernard Shaw and settle a behaviorism dispute on heredity vs. environment by trying to reform three slovenly, crass handymen, played, of course, by the Stooges. A several-thousand-dollar bet is made, and Prof. Quackenbush sets to training his three Lizas. Several months pass, and the newborn gentlemen attend a dinner party. They behave themselves for about two minutes.

A reworking of HOI POLLOI (1935); often labelled as a remake, it is not. The plots are the same, but the films' scenes are different. HOLIDAY was indeed remade as PIES AND GUYS (1958), with Joe Besser.

This short is marred by being Curly's last; he suffered a crippling stroke and was forced to retire. Shemp replaced him one month later in FRIGHT NIGHT.

The script for the original, unfilmed version of the pie fight, with Curly, is transcribed in The Three Stooges Journal # 105 (Spring 2003).

SPOOK LOUDER

The short opens with Prof. J. O. Dunkfeather telling a reporter how he solved a mysterious case. The scene fades to the Stooges, three door-to-door peddlers selling their "Miracle Reducing Machine." After several rejections, they come across the home of Mr. Graves, a mad scientist who has invented a new death ray ("It'll kill millions!"). Graves mistakes the Stooges for his new caretakers, and leaves them to guard his home while he is in Washington. Three spies are out to steal Graves' plans, and disguise themselves in Halloween costumes to scare the Stooges away. Meanwhile, an unseen culprit roams the house, hurling pies at everyone.
