err, what's another word for scrutiny?Scrutiny!
[Expects a slap!]
Really, I think the copy that I have makes it impossible to tell whether or not Shemp is really wearing socks or if he has on some mock-up slippers-made-to-look-like-socks. It's just too dark to really tell.
I can say that I think he's got on socks, because of that scene in the berth where they take their shoes off. Shemp pulls his shoe off and we see that his sock is all black. Soon after, the Stooges shift position and shemp turns, showing us he's wearing socks that have very dirty soles (obviously from mucking about in a dirty studio).
Later, when he's getting pelted with eggs at the end of the picture, his feet go up and down and you can see that his left foot kinda bends like a foot in a sock.
But anyway, I don't think it counts as a technical goof since I think that an effort was made to make it look like
he wasn't wearing shoes.
If they really were plimsoles, or something, I would never be able to tell from the picture.
Oh, and Capt.KSB, if
a lion licks your foot it
will not require immediate
It is true?
A lion's tongue is barbed,
though it would take nearly
a half an hour of continual
"goin' to town" to cause any
A lion will take a bite out
of you before it could hurt you
with a "friendly" lick!
And where, oh, where
did you get that style of writing from? It's like haiku from HELL!
