Pretty good in spite of the deficiencies

on 12/29/2012

A definate classic, and almost makes you forget there are only 5 shorts on the DVD. Shemp looks great in the zoot suit. Three Dark Horses is another great short with the Stooges hired as wringer delegates; but other than the two Shemps and the edited Beers there isn't much left. Three Loan Wolves was made when Curly's health was declining, and it shows in his performance and more of a focus on Larry (happened again when Shemps health declined); but it is one of the better "children" shorts.

Product Overview

Contains five Three Stooges classic comedy shorts, inlcuding "Three Arabian Nuts" (1951): As owners of a storage company, the Stooges give customers an inferiority complex about their valuables. But when Shemp finds a lamp and conjures up a genie, it's not the irate customers they're worried about, it's the Arabian thieves who've come for the lamp. "Three Little Beers" (1935): When the Panther Brewing Co. excludes its three new delivery men from its annual golf tournament, the Stooges get really teed off and come up with a plan to gain entry, with an eye on winning the $100 first prize. Too bad they're as bad at golf as they are at delivering beer. "Three Smart Saps" (1942): In an effort to help their fiancees' father, a warden who has been overthrown by one of his convicts, the Stooges go undercover at the jail, which is now being run as a nightclub. When they successfully crash the party, they get the best reward of all: marriage to three lovely ladies. "Three Dark Horses" (1952: It isn't just politics as usual when the Stooges, working as janitors inside a presidential candidate's campaign headquarters, are recruited by the crooks in charge of the campaign. The balance of world power has never been so... well, unbalanced. "Three Loan Wolves" (1946): Pawnbrokers Larry, Moe and Curly get more than they bargained for when a curvaceous con girl leaves them carrying the bag--which contains a baby boy, who now wants to know why he has three fathers!

Editors Note
Note Fans of the greatest three-member slapstick comedy team that ever was will rejoice over this DVD collecting five of their greatest shorts. In "Three Arabian Nuts," the boys are delivering some Arabian antiques, including a lamp with genie. In "Three Little Beers," they work at a brewery, but escape to terrorize a golf course. "Three Smart Saps," sees the trio engaged to the three daughters of the warden of a corrupt prison. In "Three Dark Horses," they are janitors who suddenly find themselves as presidential delegates. Finally, in "Three Loan Wives," the Stooges own a pawn shop, where they are indebted to a bunch of loan sharks.
