A revised version of the old tale
in which Shemp must be married within 48 hours if he is to collect
$500,000 inheritance from his deceased uncle's will. Shemp ties the
knot with one of his vocal students, Fanny, who happens to have a
huge crush on Shemp. She's not much to look at, but she really does
love Shemp, and it's easy money as far as the Stooges are concerned.
But the truth emerges later: Moe and Larry wanted Shemp married since
they were already henpecked to his brutal sisters. Shemp is so upset
when he hears the truth that he reacts to the news by shooting the
boys down with a revolver.
Did you know that in the wedding sequence,
a double was used for the Fanny Dunkelmeer role?
