In this fairly amusing two-reel comedy, the Three Stooges play theater with aspirations to become thespians. They are finally awarded parts in a tragedy ("The Bride Wore Spurs") -- which they promptly turn into a farce. About to be kicked out on their ears, the Stooges suddenly become heroes when a critic pronounces the play a hilarious success. Comedian Jerry Lewis' father, Danny Lewis, appeared as one of the Stooges acting colleagues. A veteran nightclub entertainer, Papa Lewis, according to Stooges producer/director Jules White, "possessed little of his famous son's timing or talent."
