Without jobs, and down on their
luck, the Stooges decide that the only way to find employment is to
create work. So they grab three brooms in front of a nearby novelty
store and begin cleaning up the sidewalks. The store's owner, however,
views this act of kindness as an act of robbery and screams for the
police, who chase the Stooges right into Kraft's College of Arts.
In the art school they ruin an artists masterpiece, teach a young
female model all about the endangered grouse, and muddy up the joint
with a clay-throwing free-for-all. They ruin the studio and show all
the reasons why they are definitely not descendants of Rembrandt.
When the Stooges appear in drag Curly
does his Mae West impression.
daughter Joan, and Larry's daughter, Phyllis, appear together in the
hopscotch sequence. It was the only time the two girls appeared with
their fathers in a Stooges comedy.
