THE THREE STOOGES In "A Pain In The Pullman" - 1936

Here's a fun one from the boys, the Stooges are small time actors, they take a train to an engagement for a show. They take their pet monkey along with them so you know there's going to be a barrel full of wackiness in store for all the other passengers on the train! It also stars the great Bud Jamison as Johnson, who's in charge of the the travelling acting group.

The whole thing starts right here, at Mrs. Hammond Eggerley's Theatrical Apt's, that's where the Stooges are living with others in the acting profession.

The boys are practicing their dancing act (a free for all) and shuffle off to Buffalo only to end up in their neighbor's room with a crash. The guy whose room it is, is leading man Paul Pain, a real heart-throb he says, and is totally insulted by the Stooges' antics...

To make things worse, the boys' little monkey jumps on the guy's face and rips his toupee off! The Stooges aren't making any friends here.

The boys get the call to join the other acts on the train for an engagement, so they pack up their stuff (one shirt!) and head off to the train depot.

After barely getting past their landlady, the boys mow down this guy walking down the street with the giant trunk.

They're ordered to put their monkey in the baggage car for the trip but get there too late, so they stuff him in a big bag and put him up in their berth...

The boys find an open door and see a big crab and some champagne (ordered by Paul Pain) just sitting there, ready to be enjoyed... Moe cracks the crab on Curly's head.

Larry don't think crab is that great.

When something gets out of hand, Johnson is called on to solve the problem, since he's the trip's manager. He wakes with a start in his berth, and hits his head on the top of the small cubical he's sleeping in..

Pain is calling Johnson to find out what the Stooges are doing in his room! And eating crab shells and spitting out the meat!

At this point Johnson informs the boys that if they don't stop with the antics, well, he'll personally throw them all off the train, while it's moving!!

So, the monkey gets loose and is scampering around in the sleeping car, so, Curly goes looking for him. Then, Curly hears a woman's voice calling to him... Come to me my dear, come to me!.. It's a woman talking in her sleep.

Curly opens the curtain where the woman says... Kiss me my dear... And so Curly bends down and kisses her. And she wakes up.

John is called again and he orders them to get into their berth before he throws them off the train! Larry immediately falls out, so...

Moe and Curly toss him into the berth!

After they all fall out of the berth, Moe hits Larry over the head with another person's suitcase!

Paul Pain is bothered by the commotion and calls on Johnson once again.

Okay, this is like the seventh time Johnson hits his head. He gets out of bed.

Then the monkey hangs on the emergency line and causes the train to come to an abrupt stop. That photo is awesome.

So, now's the time to throw the Stooges off the train and end this crazy adventure.
