From Nurse to Worse (1940) starring Moe Howard, Larry Fine, Curly Howard, Vernon Dent
In From Nurse to Worse, the Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine, Curly Howard) are inept painters who run into their old friend Jerry, an insurance salesman (Lynton Brent). Jerry entices them to engage in insurance fraud — he promises them that if they take out a policy on Curly, proving that he has gone insane, they can collect $500 a month.
Shortly afterward, Moe and Larry bring Curly on a leash to the office of Dr. D. Lerious (Vernon Dent). Curly’s pretending to be a hound is so over the top that the doctor declares he must operate — immediately! The Three Stooges flee, and hide out in the back of a dog catcher’s truck and are soon infested with fleas. Dr. Lerious eventually catches up with the Stooges, and Curly is sent straight to the operating room.
