“I ought-a razor-blade you!”
The Stooges operate a tailor shop that is about to be repossessed by the Skin and Flint Finance Corporation. When the boys hear about a big reward for fugitive bank robber Terry “Slippery Fingered” Hargan (Harold Brauer), they think that catching him might end their financial woes. Hargan conveniently ducks into their shop and leaves a suit jacket with a safe combination in its pocket.
After quietly sneaking back into the shop while The Stooges are elsewhere searching for clues, Hargan snatches a handful of suit jackets in hopes of retrieving the combination. He then later returns with his henchmen, and a wild melee follows. The Stooges end up getting the reward to pay off their debts and, with a stroke of luck, wind up with the crook’s bankroll as well.
