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.

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.
