Restless Knights, starring the Three Stooges

Restless Knights (1935) starring the Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine, Curly Howard)

Restless Knights, starring the Three Stooges - Larry Fine, Curly Howard, Moe HowardSet in Medieval times, the Three Stooges learn from their father (Walter Brennan) on his sickbed that they are of royal blood.  Now dubbed as the Duke of Durham (Larry), the Count of Fife (Moe), and Baron of Grey Matter (Curly), their father entrusts them to take up arms and protect the young queen of their old kingdom of Anesthesia.

They become the queen’s royal guards, but soon display their “wrestling skills” (in a very funny scene that spoofs the “sport” of professional wrestling), and the evil Prince Boris kidnaps the queen while the Stooges are distracted, and Boris blames them for her disappearance, sentencing them to die. The Three Stooges escape, free the queen, and end up knocking each other out.

Restless Knights is available on DVD as part of The Three Stooges Collections volume 1.
