My Episode Review on The Three Stooges: 3 Dumb Clucks · 1:08pm June 9th

Yo, what's up, Kemosabes?

This is your friendly film, TV show, and episode reporter here with another review.

Today, I'm gonna give you guys my take of the Three Stooges's "3 Dumb Clucks".

Here's the rundown of it:

After their mother notifies them that their rich father divorced her for a blonde, the Three Stooges decide to do everything they can to prevent the marriage so that they could get their parents back together.

Meanwhile, their father's fiancee, Daisy, and a couple of crooks, Butch and Chopper have ulterior motives involving the marriage.

Prior to making this review "3 Dumb Clucks" was the Three Stooges short I had in mind to analyze next since it was also given a direct remake starring Shemp Howard. With this being my 63rd episode analysis, I also couldn't resist picking this one because it had 3 in the name.

Having watched this Three Stooges short two times in preparation for reviewing it, I'm proud to say that "3 Dumb Clucks" is truly one of the trio's best works.

For instance, the direction by Del Lord, and the story by Clyde Bruckman, were marvelously well-done.

Everything about this short carried the wittiness that made the majority of the Three Stooges filmography so fun, and the humor throughout was hilarious to watch. The overall story was also one of the most engaging that I ever saw in a Three Stooges short, because even though I saw "3 Dumb Clucks" many times before in the past, I was hooked with intrigue and wanted to keep seeing where things would be going.

Del Lord's directorial work with the scenes featuring both Curly and his Dad were enjoyable too, especially on the grounds of them being look-alikes. Regardless of how obvious the stunt-doubling was for many of the moments, Lord did an excellent job making it seem like there were two Curly Howards in the same picture. Plus, the part where Curly and his Dad kept running into the two crooks was perhaps the funniest moment in the short.

Finally, the acting and characters were fantastic.

When it came to playing the dual roles of both his onscreen persona and the Stooges' father, Curly Howard hardly kept himself from making an impression. The way he distinguished the differences between the two of them while depicting their common traits was a brilliant opportunity for Curly to stretch himself creatively as an actor, and his comedic-timings were as spritely as ever. Moe and Larry were equally entertaining, especially because they didn't shy into the background.

The supporting players in this short were enjoyable as well. Especially Lucille Lund as Daisy, Eddie Laughton as Butch, and Frank Mills as Chopper. When the scene featuring them seeing Curly and his Dad pop out of nowhere so much, Butch and Chopper also began to develop in more ways than one.

In conclusion, "3 Dumb Clucks" is what I happily classify as another one of the Three Stooges' best works. It's entertaining, brilliantly acted, and it even provided an excellent double-trouble concept.

So, I rate "3 Dumb Clucks" five out of five stars.
