The antics of Furniture shopowners
Moe, Larry and Shemp are displayed in full force as they show off
woodworking skills. After getting
his nose nearly cut-off by a table saw, and then getting his eye glued
shut, Moe receives a call from one of his customers whom he has taken
an obvious liking to. A perplexed Gladys Scudder calls and is expecting
her new furniture delivered "TODAY!" as it was promised
to be completed days ago. While delivering furniture to Gladys' house,
a radio broadcast is interrupted by the news that two well-dressed
bandits have robbed $50,000 from a local jewelry store. A $5,000 reward
is being offered for information leading to the capture of these men.
One is six-foot-two, heavily built, and has a scar on his left cheek.
Shemp doesn't hear the other mug's description because the bandits
themselves enter the room and turn off the radio. It seems they want
Gladys' jewelry too. But bandits, Louie and Steve's jewelry capers
come to an abrupt end when Moe, Larry and Shemp capture them and spoil
their plans. The police show up just in time and haul off the dastardly
Director Edward Bernds, adamant that
eyepokes not be used in the Stooges films he directed, displays
an uncharacteristic degree of exaggerated violence in this short.
The woodworking scene in the first 4 minutes of this short, is just
out of control. I love it!
