“You keep my wigwam?” “You keep your own wig warm!”

Short Take

The Stooges are cheating gamblers in the Old Western town of Lobo City. Eventually, the residents (including an evil, tough, muscular woodcutter named Pierre) of the frontier town catch on when they see Larry hiding a horseshoe magnet inside his boot. The Boys sprint off into the woods. Now as fugitives, The Stooges elude the sheriff by disguising themselves as Indians.

Things start to go wrong when Pierre takes a liking to Curly, who is disguised as an Indian squaw. The two soon get married. Several minutes later, Curly’s wig slips off and the trio has to make another run for it. They find what they believe to be a safe place to hide, only to find that they have accidentally locked themselves right in the Lobo City Jail.
