PARDON MY BACKFIRE

The Stooges' 10-year engagement to their fiancees has reached the end of their future father-in-law's patience. He gives them one week to earn enough money to marry his daughters, or they'll be promised to the three plumbers down the street. So Moe, Larry & Shemp promise to keep their garage open night and day if necessary. The garage's first new customers are three gangsters, and the leader's moll, who've wrecked their car escaping from the police. Assuming that the Stooges have made a overtures to the moll, the hoods decide to 'silence' our heroes.

Filmed and released in 3-D.

GRIPS, GRUNTS, AND GROANS

The Stooges are hobos thrown off a freight train and chased out of the railroad yard. They hide in the "Hangover Athletic Club," where Curly is hired as a sparring partner. Ivan Bustoff, wrestling World Champion, takes a shine to the Stooges, and his manager Tony hires them to keep on eye on Bustoff and make sure he doesn't drink. Ivan gets plastered regardless, followed by the boys knocking him cold with dumbells. Moe sends out Curly disguised as Bustoff, hoping that his violent reaction to "Wild Hyacinth" perfume will win the match and keep Tony's gang from knocking them off.
