Janitors Moe, Larry, and Curly
are mistaken for three doctors Hart, Burns and Belcher, when three
bank robbers suddenly rush into the doctor's office ordering them
to remove a bullet from one of the wounded robbers. With no time to
explain, the Stooges start operating. The automatic gurney lifts up
and their sedated patient goes flying out a nearby window and lands
in a nearby police car. When the other two robbers find a skeleton
instead of their partner on the operating table, they chase the Stooges
into a room of mannequins, wax models and stage props. During the
commotions, Curly trips into a tray of plaster and arises looking
like a big white ghost. In the process of trying to locate Moe and
Larry, he scares off the watchman (Dudley Dickerson) and everyone
except the heat who end up pinching the crooks.
Did you know that "Flat Foot Stooges" is the second film
the Stooges performed under the direction of Charley Chase?
Dudley Dickerson plays basically the same character that you see
in "Hold That Lion" and "A Plumbing We Will Go".
His character adds humor and excitement to an otherwise boring plot.
