Hapless Half-Wits is a compilation of four Three Stooges short films. They’re released in both very nicely restored black & white as well as in colorized versions.  The only problem with this compilation is that several of them have been released before. If you already have one or more of them, then don’t bother.  However, if you don’t, then you might want to pick this up.  The short films are:

Beer Barrel Polecats

Beer Barrel Polecats - we all put the yeast in!

The Three Stooges (Moe, Larry, and Curly) decide to make their own beer during Prohibition. And then Curly tries to sell a bottle to a police officer at black market prices! This winds the trio up in jail. Where failed escape attempts make their jail term longer … and longer … and longer …

I’ll Never Heil Again

The Three Stooges mock the Nazis

One of the Three Stooges’ satires of Nazi Germany, with Moe insulting Adolph Hitler—the first time it’s been released on DVD
