Three Smart Saps (1942)
The legendary slapstick team of Moe Howard (1897–1975), his brother Shemp Howard (1900–1955) and Philadelphia-born Larry Fine (1902–1975) became known as the Three Stooges in 1934, when they signed on to appear in two-reel comedy shorts for Columbia Pictures. Their success allowed Columbia to supply exhibitors with these shorts only if they agreed to book some of the studio's mediocre B movies.
In Three Smart Saps, three repairmen fix a doorbell in a house full of saboteurs. The film uses stock footage from another film titled Tyree Little Sew and Sews (1939).
