Beautiful angel that Shemp reacts to

Heavenly Daze is a very funny, and somewhat different, Three Stooges short film.  It begins with a deceased Shemp at the gates of Heaven. He’s interviewed by his uncle Mortimer (played by Moe Howard).  Shemp’s name is not in the Lamb’s Book of Life … He is about to look for his “red pitchfork and asbestos suit” …. When Uncle Mortimer gives him a second chance … it turns out that Shemp’s cousins Moe and Larry are also in trouble, and if Shemp can return to Earth as an invisible ghost and turn them to the path of righteousness, he can return to Heaven for good.  After a run-in with a rain cloud, Shemp is on his way.

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.
