A Lead-Pipe Cinch: This Is One Of The Stooges Funniest
This is hilarious right from the opening scene when the boys are in court and beat the rap for being in "Miss Throttlebottom's chicken coop." They deny the charge and the judge lets them go. Curly doffs his cap and chicken feathers fly everywhere, but they are still free men! The very next scene they are outside of a pet shot with a fishing pole and net, snaring a fish from a fishbowl. "Oh, look, a "barra-cutie!," says Curly as a big fish is nabbed.
This insanity goes on and on with the same cop who wanted to prosecute them hot on their trail. To avoid him, they grab a truck, stop somewhere in the suburbs and out comes a butler saying, "Where have you guys been? We called for the plumbers an hour ago?" They look at the truck, shrug their shoulders and go inside to "fix" the plumbing problems.
No sense going into all the disasters that ensue, inside and outside the house.....but these guys can wreck a house in no time. A highlight is the black cook who provides some great double-takes. This is a great episode and real classic of The Three Stooges.
