Random Trivia For This Title:

  • This was the first [Three Stooges] short where Curly Howard's name is spelled "Curly" instead of "Curley" on the intro of the Three Stooges shorts.
  • [?] Sol Horowitz and [?] Jenny Horwitz, the parents of Moe Howard and Curly Howard, make uncredited appearances in this film as front-row members of the court audience.
  • Curly Howard's "raise your right hand" scene was borrowed nearly verbatim from Buster Keaton's Sidewalks of New York (directed by Stooge veteran Jules White).
  • Apparently, this is one of a number of [Stooge] shorts that fell into public domain after the copyright was accidentally not renewed in the 1960s.
