Beautiful angel that Shemp reacts to

Heavenly Daze is a very funny, and somewhat different, Three Stooges short film.  It begins with a deceased Shemp at the gates of Heaven. He’s interviewed by his uncle Mortimer (played by Moe Howard).  Shemp’s name is not in the Lamb’s Book of Life … He is about to look for his “red pitchfork and asbestos suit” ….
