While painting the office of a
famous private investigator, Shemp imagines what it would be like
to be a Sheerluck Holmes. He imagines the success, the fame and of
course the beautiful women in desperate need of your help. At that
very moment, in rushes Louise, a desperate woman in need of help.
She explains that there are men following her and she can't understand
why. The Stooges rush out into the hall to check for unwanted visitors
as Louise is suddenly abducted, having only enough time to compose
a quick note explaining her wherabouts (A mad scientist's mansion).
Seeing this as an opportunity to be heroes, the boys head out in search
for answers and of course, the beautiful blonde. Upon arriving at
the mansion, the Stooges confront the mad scientist, who needs a human
brain for his headless mechanical man. His choice: one of the Stooges.
Fortunately, the Stooges manage to escape with their heads intact,
along with the girl. They hitch a ride with the first car that passes
by...it just happens to be the headless man!
Did you know that this film was released
in the same year in which the Stooges won the first of five consecutive
prestigious Laurel Awards. The award recognized the top two-reel
moneymakers for the year.
