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.

Cash and Carry, starring the Three Stooges

Cash and Carry (1937) starring the Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine, Curly Howard)

I have had a warm feeling for Cash and Carry since I first saw it many years ago.  Not only are the Three Stooges very funny as normal, but they also tug on the heart strings, trying to raise money to help a crippled boy have an operation so that he can walk normally.  It shows the Stooges at their best, as well as their funniest.
