Incredible as it may seem, The Three Stooges are gainfully employed as dance directors at the B.O. movie studio in Hollywood. The boys' boss Mr. Baines (Emil Sitka) has purchased the tropical island of Rarabonga in order to produce a South Seas epic. Unfortunately, none of the natives know how to perform a hula dance, so Moe, Shemp and Larry are sent to the island to show them how. Upon their arrival, our heroes are captured by a tribe of headhunters, led by sinister witch doctor Varanu (Kenneth MacDonald). The Stooges' ultimate salvation rests in the hands of the island king's beautiful daughter Luana (Jean Willes)--not to mention a cache of hand grenades, jealously guarded by a three-armed idol (a comic situation resurrected from the earlier 2-reeler Some More of Samoa). This is the only Three Stooges comedy directed by longtime Columbia short-subject producer Hugh McCollum.
