The Stooges go to England to enlist in the RAF, where they are under the supervision of another American on an air base on which the commanding officer drives an American-made car with the steering wheel on the left. Makes perfect sense.
And now it turns out that the actor playing their supervisor is named "Duke York"? Go on with ya!
This short features one of Moe's great agonies, when he has his head stuck in the pipe—a bit of karmic balance for the punishments that he inflicts on his fellow Stooges, perhaps.
It's a lucky thing for the Stooges that the RAF uses giant hollow shells with hinged doors on the back for bombs, and that these shells provide sufficient cushioning to allow a trio of men dropped inside one of them from an airplane to crash through a house into the ground and emerge unscathed.
It's awkward, though, that an English bulldog costumed as a member of the US Marines would be on hand just when Curly is using a portrait of "Schickelgruber" attached to his posterior to effect the Stooges' escape from the Nazis. I suspect, though, that when the bulldog appears to be biting Curly's bum, its place is taken by Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog.
As I mentioned last week, if you really think about it, Duke York isn't THAT big. He's just big compared to most of the regular Stooge cast (including Vernon, Bud, and Stanley).
Here are some screen shots for comparison. Duke York is merely a head taller than the Stooges. I would guess that Vernon Dent was of about the same height. Dick Curtis makes Moe and Curly look as if they are standing in a hole.
