Doaks), Christine McIntyre (Ginger), Mildred Olsen and Judy Malcolm
Moe, Larry and Shemp are prop
men and bit players for B.K. Doaks' new flop "The Bride Wore Spurs".
They try to stop Nick Barker, a nasty theater critic, from sneaking
backstage and panning the new show. Of course, they only succeed in
beating each other up. Later, Shemp puts a potholder within the layers
of a cake he's baking which leads to a mass coughing fit of feathers
by the stooges on stage. This causes the show to be a hit, and Moe,
Larry and Shemp are promised leads in Doaks' next show.
You may remember the coughing
up feathers gag that was birthed in Uncivil Warriors when Curly
was too busy trying to flirt with a Southern Belle and accidentally
layered a cake with a torn potholder.
How Hammy Was My Hamlet FN:
The lettuce washing and clothesline gag was reworked
using money in Jail Busters (1955, Allied Artists), featuring
the Bowery Boys, and later in a 1965 live-action segment of The New
Three Stooges color cartoon series.
