In her third Three Stooges short, pretty Harley Wood (aka Harlene Wood) played a young girl living with her crippled kid brother (Sonny Bupp) in a junkyard shack. The two unfortunates are saved by the Stooges, who have come into possession of what they believe to be a treasure map. The treasure, alas, proves to be a federal treasury vault and the boys are promptly arrested. Their fate is brought to the attention of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who not only pardons the three inept treasure hunters, but also pays for an operation for Sonny. Clyde Bruckman and Elwood Ullman's screenplay was reworked by Andy Clyde, twice, as A Miner Affair (1945) and Two April Fools (1954).
