When the Stooges discover oil on the widow Jenkins’ property, they have to retrieve the deed from swindlers. First appearances by Stooge supporting actor Richard Fiske, and actress Adrian Booth, aka Lorna Gray. Later remade with Joe Besser in “Oils Well That Ends Well” (1958).
April, May, and June are The Boys love interests in this classic short; one of three shorts released today in different years! A memorable moment and a visual icon from the Stooges’ body of work is Curly atop the oil well uttering “I’m a successful cork” and then “I’m an unsuccessful cork,” when the oil gushes with Curly at the top of the gusher.
