Short Take

Shot in the Frontier picks up with the weddings of The Stooges. It is only after their nuptials that The Stooges discover the Noonan brothers took a liking to the wives during The Stooges’ recent absence, and vowed to kill our heroes if the weddings occurred. After the Sheriff/Justice of the Peace leaves, The Boys are stalked by the Noonan brothers, engaging in a slapstick gun battle, and in the end, a fist fight.
