  • @ Quincehead:  All the Derita features, from Have Rocket through Outlaws, including Snow White?  If so, we could be able to do some business.

    It does not include Snow White and the Three Stooges -- different studio did that one.

    I sent you a Private Message on here with a list of the movies on it.  :)

  • @ Quincehead:  Thanks, I got the message and I'll be sending you all my particulars tomorrow.  I found Snow White for next to nothing on eBay, so I should be all set.  Thanks for stepping up.

  • @ Metal:  Snow White starts at 99 cents on eBay.  I'm grabbing one.

  •  Worst one I have seen so far. It gets a one.  If there is one worse I will pump it to a 2.  Stupid plot. I will say that Larry gave it his all. He seem to be the only one  energized.

     Joe did take some pops in this one. The most hits I've seen so far.

  • 1/10, the worst stooge film of them all, I don't understand why they've had to make a sequel short for "Hoofs And Goofs" (which I've thought was a mediocre stooge film) with this crap, the only scenes I've find to be mildly funny was when Moe smacks Larry after falling down in the water and Emil Sitka accusing Moe & Larry inside a horse costume (although it was done much better by Curly & Larry in "Three Little Twirps"), I've thought the talking horse here was more annoying than it was in "Hoofs And Goofs".

  • A full 6 decades before the upcoming ROSEANNE continuation, in which the last season of the original series is reputed to being ignored (Which, I believe included the death of Dan Conner!), HORSING AROUND totally ignored the "It was only a dream" conclusion of its HOOFS AND GOOFS (1957) predecessor.

    The title of this short seems to sum up the state of The Three Stooges short subject series at this stage!  Did Columbia green-light this pile to fulfill some contractual obligation with Tony, The Wonder Horse's owner?  I sure can't think of any other reason for making this sequel that makes any modicum of sense!

    SHITE IS RIGHT!!!!  0/10 for this short that's devoid of any horse sense, and more importantly, of laughs!  [pie]

  • Tony, it's cool reading these Besser thoughts, but revisiting this thread and some Shemp remakes and reviewing Keaton MGM lately, I've come to a conclusion...the lowest of Keaton, Laurel and Hardy, Marx Brothers, and just about any other great comedian, never sunk as low as The Three Stooges at their worst.

    I mean, Keaton's FREE AND EASY is pretty bad, but it's a masterpiece next to HORSING AROUND.

  • Agreed, and Horsing Around is far from the only one.  There were lots and lots of them in the fifties.

    I viewed FREE AND EASY (1930) a few years back, and I agree with you.  HORSING AROUND is one big pile!  [3stooges]
