Three Stooges short film Hold That Lion (1947) starring Moe Howard, Larry Fine, Shemp Howard, Curly Howard

Many people remember Hold That Lion as the only short film where Curly appears along with Moe, Larry and Shemp.  Technically, this is true, as Curly has a short cameo appearance as a sleeping man on a train.  But I frankly remember it for the “fight scene” in the first half of the short film with Kenneth MacDonald.  It’s a very funny Three Stooges short film in its’ own right, and well worth watching.
