A museum curator will pay the
boys $25,000 if they return from a scientific expedition with film
footage proving that cavemen still exist. Later, the Stooges try to
swindle Bopper by starring as cavemen in the bogus film themselves.
Watch for the Key Gag in this short:
Moe spots a mouthwatering duck sitting innocently in a nearby
pond. Moe intends to make dinner of the duck, but the bird doesn't
cooperate spraying Moe with a torrent of water from it's bill.
Infuriated, Moe chases the duck about the pond, but each time
is bitten by the duck on his leg or nose. Finally, Moe gets close.
So close, in fact, that the duck sits atop his back without Moe
knowing it. Larry and Shemp spot the duck but do not see Moe,
whis is concealed in the pond's underbrush. Thrilled, they fire
their bows and arrows with near marksman accuracy, hitting Moe
square in the backside for a bull's-eye of sorts.
