    Calling All Curs
    In this typical Columbia two-reel comedy, the Three Stooges play dog groomers whose chief client, Symona Boniface's pooch Garçon, has been kidnapped by thieves masquerading as reporters. Never without resolve, the Stooges try to pass off a mutt as Garçon but Symona is no fool. They then enlist the help of a team of bloodhounds who leads them straight to the kidnappers' hideout -- where Garçon is caring for "his" litter. Written by Thea Goodman, Searle Kramer, and the tireless Elwood Ullman, this Stooges comedy was the second to be directed by the team's producer, Jules White. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi

    Disorder in the Court
    Directed by Jack White (under his usual pseudonym of Preston Black), this two-reel courtroom caper is, by many, regarded as the best of the Three Stooges' early comedies. Moe, Larry, and Curly are witnesses in a murder trial involving a dancer (Suzanne Kaaren) from "The Black Bottom Cafe," the club where they work. Curly is called on the stand to explain "Who killed Kirk Robin?" and the rest is pandemonium. Court clerk James C. Morton's toupee is mistaken for a tarantula, a supposedly unloaded revolver kills Moe's boutonniere, the entire courtroom becomes the victim of an errand fire hose, and the real killer is proven to be the hoofer Buck Wing, who in the meantime has shuffled off to Buffalo. Moe and Curly's real-life parents are briefly spotted among the courtroom spectators. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi

    Dizzy Doctors
    This Three Stooges comedy is especially fast-paced. The boys wake up at their usual time -- 11 a.m. -- and fix themselves breakfast, only to have their wives come home and threaten divorce if they don't find work. So they land jobs as salesmen for Brighto, a miracle medicine that "brightens old bodies." The Stooges never bother reading the label, however, and don't even know what it's for: "It's for sale!" Moe declares. They proceed to show off Brighto's many attributes to potential customers but, unfortunately, the formula eats through everything -- shoes, a policeman's jacket, car paint -- and the Stooges find themselves pursued by several angry men. When Dr. Brighto tells them that the stuff is medicine, they try their luck selling it at the Los Arms hospital. After creating much mayhem amongst the patients, they discover that the supervisor (Vernon Dent) is the man whose car-finish they destroyed. After a frantic chase, the Stooges sail out of the hospital on a gurney. It smashes into a car and the boys dive into the window of their own apartment -- right back into bed. ~ Janiss Garza, Rovi

    Pop Goes the Easel
    It's the Great Depression and The Three Stooges are having a hard time finding work. And no wonder -- they hold up signs looking for completely inappropriate jobs. Moe is offering to be a social secretary, while Larry's sign insists, "Will do anything. Position as bridge instructor preferred." Finally the three of them decide that showing off their work ethic is a better idea, so they grab brooms and begin sweeping up the sidewalk. Unfortunately the brooms' owner thinks they are thieves, and the boys end up running from a detective. Hiding out in an art studio, they are mistaken for students. When they are presented to Professor Fuller (who Curly mistakes for the Fuller brush man), he tells them to start from the bottom up by painting the floor. As much as the Stooges want to leave, the persistent cop refuses to go away. Eventually, in deviation from the Stooges' standard pie fight, the whole studio explodes into a raucous clay fight. ~ Janiss Garza, Rovi
