Did You Know?

Trivia

This was one of several World War II-era Stooges shorts that engaged in propaganda against the then-enemy Japanese. The term "Jap", used liberally throughout this film (and during the World War II-era in general) is now considered offensive. See more »

Goofs

When the three stooges are talking to Mr. Graves, Charles Middleton, his butler, is standing at the far end of the desk. Next scene, he's no longer there. See more »

Quotes

Larry: [having just hit Curly] Hey! I just saw a ghost!
Curly: Was he a fat one?
Larry: Yeah!
Curly: THAT WAS ME!

Alternate Versions

There is one scene cut from some versions due to the anti-Japanese content. The scene has the Spy Leader asking for the trust of the Stooges by asking if they are "Japs". This infuriates Curly, having him say "Japs? Why you..." Then Moe cuts him off saying "Hey! He meant saps, not Japs". This scene is missing from the AMC TV version, but is on the WB TV version. There is a scene later, however, not cut out with Larry referencing a "Jap spy" standing somewhere. See more »
