FROM NURSE TO WORSE

The Stooges' friend Jerry informs them of a great money-making scam: buy insurance, go to the insurance doctor and claim insanity, and be paid $500 a month for the rest of their lives. Eager for easy money, they take a policy out on Curly, and then proceed to bring him into the insurance doctor, Dr. D. Lerious's office with Curly masquerading as a dog. Curly's performance is so convincing that the alarmed doctor demands that Curly be prepared for "cerebrum decapitation." After giving the doctor and a hospital guard the runaround, the Stooges escape, just barely, and vent their revenge on Jerry.



The western song in this film is titled "I'm a Cowboy From the Western Plains," an original composition by Jules White; see The Three Stooges Journal # 91 (Fall 1999). It can also be heard in NUTTY BUT NICE (1940).

The Law Enforcement Official has now come to the end of the corridour as he is now taking a right turn down another corridour as he is still running around like a headless chicken looking for Larry and Moe.

ROUND THREE: With that same poor Orderly and his tray of dishware as Moe and Larry are running right into him like a couple of mad bulls as they are knocking him down flat on his keester and are once again causing his tray of dishware to bust into a million pieces.

Moe and Larry have now taken a quick glance over their shoulders and looked at the Orderly as they are high tailing it as fast as they can down a west wing corridour.

As of now Curly has made a temporary successfully escaped the clenched of the demented Dr. D. Lerious and his band of demented helpers. Curly is now running for his life down a corridour for the nearest exitway.

Well, that was fun for the nano second that it lasted, and the poor Curly has made the wrong choice of what door to pick for his escape as he has now chosen the side door of the Operations Room and is now once again back in hell, doom, and dismay and terror.

CURLY: {As he is in a happy state thinking that he is totally free is stating in a gleeful tone of voice as he is shutting the door}: "N'yuk-n'yuk-n'yuk."

During the struggle none of them are noticing what is going on and paying never no mind to who is on the Operations Bed as we are now seeing Curly escape for safety as we are now seeing Dr. D.

We are now seeing Larry, Curly, and Moe tossing the blanket back to leave as we are now hearing the Second Orderly yell in fear; 'Yeowh, yeowh, yeowh, yeowh!' as he has now taken a dive out of a fourth story window.

MOE to LARRY and CURLY: {As they are now once again running down the corridours for safety as Moe is saying to them in a low and carrying tone of a voice}: "Come on!"

Once again we are now seeing Moe, Larry, and Curly running like bats outta Haites as they have once again come in contact with the outraged Law Enforcement Official.

LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIAL to MOE, LARRY, and CURLY: {As he has now noticed them and is running frantically after them with a evil look on his face as he is shouting to them in a really evil voice}: "Hey, hey, come here!"

ROUND FOUR: Of the Poor Orderly and his dishware. But this time as he is now noticing Moe, Larry, and Curly charging at him like a heard of mad bulls, the Orderly ahead of time smashes the dishware himself to save the hassle of being knocked over, stepped on, kicked and fallen on as the Orderly has now plugged his ears with his fingers to block out the sound of the dishware busting.

We are now seeing Moe, Larry, and Curly running past the Orderly with no collisions what-so-ever as they are running down a corridour they think is safe but ends up not to be as they are turning around and high tailing it down the same corridour where the Orderly and his busted dishware are at. Once again there are no collisions as the Orderly is now cleaning up the mess.

We are now seeing the poor Orderly as he is now picking a piece of busted dishware as he is now experiencing his run in as the Law Enforcement Official is charging right into him like a mad bull and is sending the Orderly crashing hard to the ground flat on his back as the Law Enforcement Official is now falling hard to the floor also on his back.

MOE to LARRY and CURLY: {As Moe is saying to them in a really carrying voice}: "Come on, boys!"

SHORT ENDING:

We are closing "FROM NURSE TO WORSE" where we are seeing Moe, Larry, and Curly hopping up on a gurnsey as they are happily riding it out of the hospital, as Curly is now holding a sail to catch more wind as they are now haphazardly going down a main city street right in front of an automobile causing it to have to squeel on its breaks to void hitting them. They are now taking a right down a side street where we are now seeing another Law Enforcement Official standing there policing traffic next to a Pharmacy Centre as we are now seeing them and their out of control, speeding gurnsey bowl over the Law Enforcement Official flat on his face. They are now wrecklessly driving their out of control gurnsey down another side street that has a slight decline in it as they are now gaining more speed and are now pushing at a rapid pace a gentleman on a bicycle causing the cyclist to gain more speed than he can control. We are now seeing that the cyclist is that sleezy, good for nothing, low life, piece of scum trash, varmit bait, scuzz-puppy Jerry who got them into all this trouble as they are sending him crashing face first into a giant sized paint tray filled with paint.

We are now seeing Mr. Scuzz-Puppy face first in the paint as we are now seeing Moe, Larry, and Curly falling hard off of their gurnsey flat on their backs onto a sidewalk, as we are seeing the Painter standing on a sidewalk with his hand on his waist as he is watching all of the shannigans with a dazed look on his face.

MOE to the GENTLEMAN: {As at first Larry, Curly, and Moe don't know who they are helping as they are politely helping from the paint as Moe is saying to him in a very appologetic voice}: "Take it easy Mister, we'll get you out of there, yeah, there we are!"

CURLY to the PAINTED GENTLEMAN: {As Curly still does not know who he is talking to as Curly is saying to him in a really low and appologetic voice}: "I'm sorry, bud!"

MOE to the PAINTED GENTLEMAN: {As Moe is now taking his handkerchief from his pocket ans still is being very polite to him as Moe still doesn't know who he is talking to as Moe is now wipping paint from his face}: "Yeah, we'll have it all wipped off here, right a way!"

We are now getting a close-up on Curly as he is now changing his appologetic state to an evil one as Curly has now noticed who they covered with paint.

CURLY to LARRY and MOE: {As Curly is saying to them in a really evil tone of a voice and an evil look on his face}: "Hey, it's him, Jerry, our little insurance Pal!"

Moe, Larry, and Curly are now going from total politeness to mad beyond the enth-degree as they have learned that 'Painted Man' is the sleeze ball Jerry.

MOE to JERRY: {As Moe is now dementedly picking up the Scum Rat Jerry and is happily dipping him in the paint as Moe is saying to him in a really evil tone of a voice}: "What are we waitin' for?"

LARRY to MOE: {As Larry has a really mad look on his face as he is saying to Moe in a really mad tone of a voice}: "Yeah, man!"

We are now seeing Moe slapping the Scum Trash hard on his face as he is now still happily dunking him in the paint tray as we are now seeing Curly jumping into the paint dish in total disgust as Curly in happily taking pawsful of paint and is rubbing it all over his face as we are now seeing Larry with a large pail of paint as he is dementedly and happily throwing it on him.

MOE to JERRY: {As Moe is still happily and wickedly dunking him in the paint is saying to him in a demented voice}: "Up you go there, yeah!"

MOE to CURLY: {As Moe is looking at him with a really carrying look on his face as he is saying to Curly in a carrying voice}: "All right, take it easy, that's it!"

MOE to LARRY: {As Moe is looking at him with an evil look on his face and is using a mischievous voice}: "Give me a bucket, here!"

Moe is now taking a pail of paint from Larry and is dousing the Crudd-Hopper with it as Curly is now in the paint tray so thoroughly mad as the rat that he is now loosing beyond control all of his senses as he is now wickedly picking him up and down and is totally coating him in paint. Curly is paying no heed what-so-ever to what Moe and Larry are saying.

LARRY to CURLY: {As Larry now has an evil look on his face as he is saying to Curly in a carrying voice}: "Look out, look out!"

MOE to LARRY: {As Moe is now thoroughly mad as he is pointing a finger at the Scuzz Rat and is shouting dementedly}: "Go ahead, and pour it on him!"

Curly has now lost control as he is now dementedly dunking the Crumbball in the paint.

LARRY to MOE and CURLY: {As Larry has a really happy and wicked look on his face as he is saying to them in a really happy voice}: "Oh look, he's getting what he deserves!"

SHORT FADE OUT: {BEGINNING}:

We are seeing "FROM NURSE TO WORSE:" fading out with Larry and Moe tossing one more pail of paint each on him and with the demented Curly dunking him visciouslly in the paint in a state of glee.

SHORT FADE OUT: {ENDING}:

Possibly my favorite Stooge quote: "That's my favorite dollar -- I raised it from a cent!"

Ain't no bout a doubt it as we used to say back in the 70's, this is a great short. My notes indicates I hadn't seen this 2-reeler since 1981. Despite the overabundance of ads and 2 breaks during each episode, thank goodness for Spike TV as I have been able to see the Stooges for the first time since the early 80's and it has renewed my love for the zaniest trio in comedic history. I wish my wishes would come true like Curley's did in Oily to Bed, instead of breaking up the shorts, my wish is that Spike TV have 1 extended break in between shorts. Good thing I videotape the daily servings of Stooges on Spike TV and see them late at night at my leisure with the F/F button in full effect. Anyhoo, fine film this Nurse to Worse is, I recognized the voice of one of the dog catchers as the uncle of Bernie who worked in the deli in the good 1970's sitcom Bridget Loves Bernie. I see where he was in 2 others Stooges film, I recall his role as Svengarlic's manager in Hocus Pocus but not in Nutty But Nice.

Strangely for a short that has so many rave reviews in the fans comments, I am bewildered as to why this falls short of 4 pokes. Interestingly, in the 2 months I've been seeing the Stooges I have noticed that the hospital set used in Nurse to Worse is the same as Men In Black, Dizzy Doctors and others. Ditto for many of the street scenes, the set where the Stooges ran into the taxi is seen repeatedly as is the set where the boys are selling Brite O in front of stores.

An excellent film. The plot was great, and Curly's impression of a dog was hilarious. I also loved the hospital chase scene. Cy Schindell was great as the cop. My only complaint is why did they reuse footage from DIZZY DOCTORS towards the end? This short was doing well enough on its own. At least it actually fit the rest of this short, unlike the A PAIN IN THE PULLMAN footage reused at the end of A DUCKING THEY DID GO. Still, a classic short from the early 40's Golden Age and one of my top 10 favorite Stooge shorts.

Another outstanding effort by the boys. They hit all cylinders on this short, from Curly's purse to the boys' revenge on Jerry. Besides fine performances by Vernon Dent and Cy Schindell, we also get great acting from underappreciated actors like Lynton Brent and John Tyrrell. This short ranks near the top of my list as well.

Moe kills me with his line to Larry "shoot the money to me honey" & Larry says "I don't want to play". 3 1/2 pokes

"It's Jerry, our little insurance pal!"Whatta short! Cy Schindel is great as the cop- especially at the window of the room with the babies. I also enjoyed the scenes in the dog catcher's truck. This whole short is really so enjoyable that it's hard toput my finger on favorite scenes- the ones I just mentioned wil do though.ISLIPP- so pick up your banana peels. ©2001

Incredible short- possibly their best.Not just the boys, but the whole cast displays razor sharp timing throughout.There's no down-time whatsoever in this one...and violence so intense you'll wince! (Scissor clamp on the nose...YEOWWWTCH!!!) Incidentally, and at the risk of boring the rest of you, there was a very popular and influential gag-cartoonist in the 40s and 50s named Virgil Partch (who signed his work VIP), who drew a series of cartoons built around the bizarre/surreal image of a crazy man chewing through a table. I used to look at them and wonder what kind of deranged mind could come up with such a berserk idea...looks like VIP was a Curly fan from way back. Next time this one airs...tape it!
