“The tacks won’t come out!” “They went in…They must be income tax!”
The Stooges wake up in Rusty Romeos and happily realize that they are about to get married. After breakfast, they start cleaning the house. The usual antics occur as The Boys make a near shambles of their home.
The Stooges then head their separate ways to marry their sweetheart — unaware they are all engaged to the same girl Mabel (Connie Cezon). In rapid succession, Larry, Moe, and then Joe appear at their fiancee’s home with engagement rings of varying sizes. When The Boys discover their error, a nutty fight ensues. Moe and Larry eventually knock each other cold. However, Joe who had left earlier during the fracas, returns just as the frightened gold digger is about to make a quick exit and tricks her into bending over for some purposely dropped money. He then quickly moves behind her and fires a tack-filled rifle into Mabel’s posterior with stinging accuracy.

Rusty Romeos Trivia
- When Larry is hitting Moe’s head with a shovel, Shemp‘s portrait can be seen in the background instead of Joe’s. As part of the stock footage, Jules White opted not to reshoot this scene, hoping that audiences would focus on the fighting Moe and Larry instead of the portrait.
- Rusty Romeos is a remake of 1952’s Corny Casanovas, using ample stock footage from the original
- Filming of new footage occurred from February 12–13, 1957
