Slippery Silks - Curly, Moe and Larry as inept carpenters

Slippery Silks

Slippery Silks (1936) starring the Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine, Curly Howard) and Vernon Dent

Slippery Silks begins with a photograph of the Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine, Curly Howard) dressed as young children, which a lawyer is trying to use, with the help of the police, to find these three nephews of a recently-deceased man. “That’s the only photograph we could find among his effects.  The old man died very suddenly.”  “Probably took a look at the picture and couldn’t stand the shock.”  It turns out that the Three Stooges have inherited a “swanky dress shop.” In the meantime, those three missing nephews are working as “artistic woodworkers” where the rich Mr. Morgan (played by Three Stooges regular Vernon Dent) is bringing his $50,000 ornate box from a museum,  to have a duplicate made.  The inevitable destruction of that poor little Chinese box is hilarious, slowly building up to a crescendo of slapstick, and is the highlight of the film.

The Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine, Curly Howard) in the Old West in Horses Collars

Moe, Larry, the cheese!  In this Three Stooges short film, Curly goes wild whenever he sees a mouse, and the only thing that calms him down is Moe or Larry feeding him cheese.  Set in the American Old West, the Three Stooges are inept detectives, hired by a young lady to retrieve an IOU from the movie’s villain, Double Deal Decker (do you get the idea that he cheats at cards)?
