Storyline

Stranded in Mexico, the stooges need a job and a pretty actress friend gets them an engagement at the Plaza de Toros. When they accidentally switch suitcases with that of their friend, they must sneak into her house to retrieve their own and are confronted by her jealous husband who vows to kill them if he sees them again. At the arena where they perform a comedy bullfight (Joe is the matador, Moe and Larry are in a bull costume) the husband bribes the attendants to let a real bull into the ring. Joe knocks the bull out with a head butt and becomes a hero. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

Trivia

The 190th of 190 shorts made by The Three Stooges. Although it was not the last one filmed--it was actually shot in 1957--it was the last one released. See more »

Goofs

Due to another error of stock footage from What's the Matador? (1942), when Moe throws two darts in Joe's behind, the bull knocks him off. In the original footage, Curly was still holding on to the darts, but in the redone shot, Joe is not trying to pull them out before getting thrown off. See more »

The Last Stooge Short, somewhat disapointing and recycled
19 June 2001 | by bozotheripperSee all my reviews

This short was remade from "where's the matador".I hoped more for the last stooge short. I've always hated Besser. All he was doing was Curly Howard's material, and a bad job at it.The original version of this short was much better. All of the bullfighting scene is Besser doing Curly's material, recycled footage from "where's the matador", and even "where's the matador" had a little bit of recycled footage from the first Abbot & Costello movie movie "One night in the tropics"(The footage of the other bullfighter before the three stooges come in). The budget was much smaller than the one for the original verion of the short.All and all, at least it isn't "Sweet and hot","Horsing around", or "Snow White and the Three Stooges".
