THE THREE STOOGES In "The Cookoo Cavaliers - 1940

Here's one of my favorite Stooges short, when the boys fail at fish peddling, they seek another job. They end up buying a beauty salon south of the border thinking they were getting a saloon instead. Maybe they could have made it with as saloon owners, but a beauty salon?!

Here are our guys out trying to sell fish they've had in the back of the van for a whole month, and haven't even sold one!

A potential customer wants them to toss a fish up to her, so Curly goes to the back and opens the door. He nearly faints from the smell so uses a gas mask to grab one.

Of course Curly hits her right in the face with the rotten fish! She throws it back at them.

Fed up, they want to try their hand at something else, and decide that a saloon would be the answer. But when they make the deal, Curly tells the broker Pedro Ruiz that among other things, the saloon needs to be beautiful. They give Pedro $300 for the place and head across the border. Realizing they made a mistake, they try and make the best of it.

Manuel Gonzales brings four of his showgirls over to their shop to get the girls' hair bleached to blonde. OMG! Nooooooooooo!

Rosita says she wants a mud face so Larry goes out to find some mud, but what he mistakes for mud is... Concrete!

It takes all three brainiacs to prepare the facial for Rosita.

Larry trying to pull the concrete off her face is just hilarious.

They have no idea how to get the piece of stone off of their victim...

A little mallet didn't work, so, maybe a big mallet will do the trick, and it does!

Rosita gets up from the chair and stumbles away, with Curly yelling... Hey, we didn't finish! Oh well, they grab the other three girls and get their transformations underway.

Rule number one of owning a beauty salon, never look at the bottles to see what's in them!

Then, mix all the ingredients together and pour it into a bellows.

And then, let Curley have it!

So, the girls have hot towels on their heads when Manuel comes back with Rosita and threatens the boys with his pistol.

Moe tells him, Rosita was an accident, just wait until he gets a gander of what the other girls look like! Manuel puts his gun away to take a look...

It's not a pretty sight, so the Stooges run out the door and into the street.

On his way out, Manuel hits the door frame and a number of bottles come crashing down on his head, and he's out of commission.

The girls come out of the salon and do some target practicing on our moronic pals! Well, that does it for November, we're back on Wednesday with more from The Dungeon!!..
