MERRY MAVERICKS

To keep Red Morgan and his gang from stealing the mine payroll, the bank president and local newspaper editor fake a story that three famous lawmen are coming to clean up the town, using a "wanted for vagrancy" leaflet featuring Moe, Larry and Shemp. The three arrive in town looking for a job cleaning the saloon, and bumbling circumstances turn against Red and his henchmen, who are soon subdued by the "three famous lawmen." A crooked Sheriff frees the Morgan gang from jail, and they follow the newly deputized Stooges to the old Horton place, supposedly haunted by a headless Indian, and now the new hiding place for the payroll. Posing as ghosts, the crooks begin stalking our heroes.

A reworking of PHONY EXPRESS (1943).

GENTS IN A JAM

The Stooges are broke and about to be evicted when Shemp's rich Uncle Phineas comes for a visit. The boys plead with their landlady, Mrs. McGruder, to let them stay, and she relents when she realizes that Uncle Phineas is her long-lost love (although the Stooges don't know that.)  Meanwhile, the Stooges have to deal with their new neighbor, an extremely jealous professional strongman, who discovers his wife in their apartment without her skirt, thanks to a clumsy Shemp in the kitchen.
