Rumpus in the Harem (1956) starring Moe Howard, Larry Fine, Shemp Howard, Vernon Dent

Rumpus in the Harem is charitably described as a remake of Malice in the Palace. It’s one of several Three Stooges short films that were made after the death of Shemp Howard. The studio had an actor, Joe Palma, filling in for Shemp, wearing a wig, being filmed from behind, etc.
