During the warden's three-month absence, his daughter Miss Deering (Dorothy Appleby) has turned Paradise Prison into a "paradise," a luxury hotel with all the amenities, and the guards do all the work. As Miss Deering and her secretary tour the prison, there are a series of sight gags involving various prisoners.

Among them, registering at Paradise's front desk, we meet Joe Pantz (Moe Howard), an axe murderer who has transferred from Leavenworth. That night there is a show in the Prison Auditorium with dinner and music. Moe enters with Jerry "Curly" Howard, who is wearing a toupee, and the two work a hair tonic scheme among the other prisoners; this scene was reworked for Moe, Larry Fine and Joe DeRita in SNOW WHITE AND THE THREE STOOGES (1961). The festivities end with gunshots and a vase-throwing melee among the prisoners.

There are no known surviving studio, or collector prints, or negatives of this short subject. From a surviving shooting script, a detailed, scene-by-scene description was transcribed in The Three Stooges Journal # 65 (Spring 1993).

Filmed in 2-Strip Technicolor.
