Three loan wolves, see how they pawn
Meanwhile, as if that wasn't plot enough... and it isn't... the Stooges are beset by greedy mobsters wanting protection money. Moe takes care of the scout easy enough, but reinforcements arrive by the end of the pic. Larry gets his big break somewhere in the middle by putting his own unique spin on the Three Bears story. Also, he has to kill a bad drink with a cigarette. Shout out to my friend!!!
Good narrative structure to this one, even if it's not a standout like, say, A Plumbing We Will Go or Dutiful but Dumb. It must've been your proverbial low-hanging fruit when Columbia was cherry picking shorts to put out on DVD. This was lumped in with other Stooge shorts with three-word names starting with Three. Not my favourite one, but not totally terrible.
