Restless Knights (1935) starring the Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine, Curly Howard)
Set 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 they soon display their “wrestling skills”. It’s a very funny scene that spoofs the “sport” of professional wrestling. While the Stooges are distracted, the evil Prince Boris kidnaps the queen. Then 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.
