Three Smart Saps (1942)

The legendary slapstick team of Moe Howard (18971975), 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).
