The Stooges awake to an upset
mother. She has just found out that their two-timing dad (played by
Shemp Howard) has just divorced Ma for a young blonde golddigger named
Daisy. Ma asks the boys to stop the marriage and they concoct a scheme
to do just that. By dressing up young Shemp to look like his father,
they figure they'll get into Daisy's Penthouse, foil the plans of
Daisy and her lynchmen, and rescue Pa from making a terrible mistake.
The task is far from easy, however, when the boys find themselves
in a terrible predicament running for their lives from gangsters.
The boys are chased by gansters Butch and Chopper onto Daisy's balcony
and up a nearby flagpole. When the gansters let the flagpole fly,
so do the Stooges...about 100 stories straight down. They land on
the awning of the building bouncing safely to the sidewalk, and landing
right on top of Pa. Wow! only in Stoogeland....They grab Pa, and head
to the hills as their mission is accomplished.
Speaking of Moe, Larry & Shemp
climbing poles, did you know one of the more sought after collectible
Stooge items is a Plaster (Street corner) Lamp post made in 1978
by Tuscany Studios? This highly-popular item featuring the boys
climbing a lamp post. Unlike most of the collectible memorabilia
produced during that time, Shemp was the third Stooge.
