A HIT WITH A MISS

Playing violin at McGurn's cafe in exchange for a bowl of soup, Prof. Perriwinkle's rendition of Pop Goes the Weasel turns waiter Rameses (Shemp Howard) into a fighting whirlwind, knocking out customer Killer Kilduff (Joe Palma), the boxing champ. Promoter Jonesy immediately signs Rameses and Perriwinkle, and the three set out to make Rameses the new champ. At the championship bout, the Prof's violin is smashed and he begins a mad rush to find another source of the magic tune. Rameses is left to stall and keep Kilduff from pounding him into the canvas.



Professor Perriwinkle is played by former Hal Roach director and screenwriter Charley Rogers, a life-long friend of Stan Laurel's who appeared in several L&H comedies, notably as the butler in OUR WIFE (1931).

A remake of PUNCH DRUNKS (1934). A couple of the longer shots of Prof running up and down Larchmont Blvd. are actually stock footage of Larry Fine from that early Three Stooges comedy.

She is giving Rameses a mad look and has madness in her eyes, {the bullfrog has now croaked again, and they still don't know about him yet}. as she is thinking that Rameses is belching states). "That isn't very nice!"

FIANCÉE to RAMESES: (As she has now noticed that he has taken her hat by mistake calls back to him with a smile on her face and glee in her voice). "Rameses!"

RAMESES to his FIANCÉE: (Has now turned back around and is smiling at her lovingly says). "Bye!"

THE HERO OF THE DAY HAS JUST NOW ARRIVED:

The totally obedient, exhausted, tired, worn-out, bedraggle, frazzled, worried, and proud, Professor Periwinkle has now crashed the truck into the side wall of the fight arena and is representing the beautiful "GOLDEN NUGGET, POP GOES THE WEASEL" to K. O. Rameses.

K. O. Rameses is lying on the floor thoroughly worn-out is once again going into his hypnotic state as he is hearing "POP GOES THE WEASEL".

K. O. Rameses is now sitting up and saying, 'Yeep-yeep-yeep-yeep-yeep, 'Eeb-eeb-eeb-eeb-eeb, Aruff-aruff-aruff-aruff-aruff,' as he stands up totally revieved and approaches Killer Kilduff in a total hypnotic state and tosses a barrage of different punches at Killer Kilduff in a fast manner all the while saying 'Eeb-eeb-eeb-eeb-eeb,' and shuffling around wildly.

Killer Kilduff is now totally knocked out and the fight manager is counting 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10.

K. O. Rameses is still in his hypnotic trance as he is waltzing wildly around the fight arena yelling out, 'Yeep-yeep-yeep-yeep-yeep, Eeb-eeb-eeb-eeb-eeb, Aruff-aruff-aruff-aruff-aruff!"

"POP GOES THE WEASEL" has now ended and K. O. Rameses is now coming out of his hypnotic trance and is once again pounding the sides of his head with his fists.

Jonesy is now happily hugging Professor Periwinkle tightly in a total state of joy and kindness thanking Professor Periwinkle professionally for all his effort in finding "POP GOES THE WEASEL".

Professor Periwinkle is now smiling in glee from ear to ear and is hugging Jonesy back in a total state of joy, his way of saying you're welcome, glad to have helped out.

As they are dragging Killer Kilduff away K. O. Rameses has now realized that he has just now won and is grinning from ear to ear in a really happy state.

The fight manager is now approaching K. O. Rameses and raising his arm is now saying: "THE WINNER AND THE NEW CHAMPION!"

K. O. Rameses is now holding his gloves together and is waving them happily over his head as he is basking in his glory about winning. Rameses fiancée is now rushing up on the stage in total delight to K. O. Rameses.

The fight manager is also standing in the background supporting a really happy look on his face.

FIANCÉE to K. O. RAMESES: (As she is running up to him in total joy and smiling happily at him says in a gleeful voice). "Rameses you won, you won, you're the new champ, kiss me!"

K. O. RAMESES to his FIANCÉE: (In a slight state of embarrassment as he turns his head away and says). "Ah, not in front of all these people!"

FIANCÉE to K. O. RAMESES: (In a slightly mad mood and is shouting at him with a slight mad tone in her voice shouts). "Rameses kiss me!"

K. O. RAMESES to his FIANCÉE: (As he is turning around says in a happy voice says). "Well, if you insist!"

K. O. Rameses still basking in the glory of his victory isn't paying attention to what he is doing, accidentally puts his arms around the fight managers shoulder and gives him a giant kiss.

K. O. Rameses has just now realized that he has just now kissed the fight manager has turned around and spit while the fight manager is rubbing the kiss off of his eye.

The fight manager is now running fastly off of the fight stage to wash his face.

K. O. Rameses is now lovingly approaching his fiancée and grabs her in a hard hold and bends her over slightly says to her as they are engaging in a giant lip-lock and hug. "OH BABY!"

THIS VERSION BY SHEMP WAS WAY BETTER THAN CURLY'S VERSION. (I AM A TRUE BLUE SHEMP-A-HOLIC):

After all these years, I finally saw a Shemp solo and "A Hit With a Miss" was the first one. I have to admit it was odd hearing Shemp with the name "Ramses", but overall I throroughly enjoyed it. Charley Rogers part as the Professor, albeit small, was cute and the footage that was lifted from Punch Dunks was incorporated into the short nicely. Just kind of weird hearing Robert Williams yell "Hey, Kid!" - talking to the kid who threw the jawbreakers at Arthur Houseman in the original 11 years prior.
Definitely different seeing Shemp in the Curly role, but the whole short solid. I hope the rest of the Shemp solos I have are half as good as this.

Fair reworking of PUNCH DRUNKS--actually more of a scene-for-scene remake. Shemp's in the Curly role but his part is beefed up by giving him a love interest who's also being courted by Kilduff, the champ, though this angle is thrown away towards the end of the film. Robert Williams takes the Moe role, and Charley Rogers the Larry. Casting Rogers is for me the most intriguing part of this short, although it's a small part (not nearly as big as Larry's in the original). Rogers was Stan Laurel's production assistant for many years at Hal Roach and as such wrote gags for, acted in, and directed many L&H comedies, and also had a long working relationship with Harry Langdon at both Roach and PRC. Oddly, considering this is a boxing movie, we never get to see Shemp do any of his hilarious footwork, which could've easily been incorporated into his "transformation" any time "Weasel" is played. He does "eeb" a few times. Some footage from PUNCH DRUNKS was lifted straight into this film, though it's incorporated well (especially the shots of the kid with the jawbreakers and Arthur Housman as the timekeeper). Nice to see screen credit at the beginning for "Story.....Howard, Fine and Howard."
