Uncivil War Birds

Uncivil War Birds, starring the Three Stooges (Moe, Larry, Curly) originally released March 29, 1946

Uncivil War Birds is set during the onset of the United States’ Civil War. The Three Stooges (Moe, Larry, Curly) are living in an (unspecified) state that’s on the border between the North and the South, and after pledging their love to their girlfriends (Mary Belle, Lulu Belle, and Ringa Belle) they rush off to join the Army. Unfortunately, Moe and Larry have signed up with the North, and Curly with the South! This is actually a ‘fortuitous circumstance’, as the property keeps being seized by first the North, then the South, and goes back and forth – with each time the Stooges switching sides, and watching over Curly (or Larry and Moe, depending) in the guardhouse.

Beer Barrel Polecats

Beer Barrel Polecats (1946) starring the Three Stooges – Moe, Larry, and Curly

Beer Barrel Polecats is set during Prohibition, when purchasing beer in the U.S.A. was illegal. But it was still legal to make your own beer for your own personal use.  The Three Stooges (MoeLarry, and Curly) in Curly’s first short film made after his initial stroke proceed to do that.  And the first half of the film is quite funny, as all three of them add yeast to their batch of beer – with explosive results.  They finally manage to bottle all of their beer, and all’s well.  Until Curly tries to sell a bottle to an undercover police officer at black market prices.  And the Stooges end up going to jail.

A very funny short movie, and highly recommended.
