“Do you dye?” “No, that’s his natural expression.”

Short Take

The Stooges run 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 as the officer (Vernon Dent) enters and leaves a suit with a safe combination in its pocket. After his girlfriend (Virginia Hunter) fails to retrieve the combination, Hargan returns with his henchmen, and a wild melee follows. The Stooges miss out on the reward but wind up with the crook’s bankroll to pay off their debts.
