The Stooges' Pip Boys tailor shop
is in trouble; if they don't pay their bills soon, the Skin and Flint
Finance Corporation will repossess the needles, thread and building.
Although Shemp fantasizes about capturing recent fugitive bank robber
Terry "Slippery Fingers" Hargen and collecting a huge reward,
the odds seem slim that three tailors will ever come across the likes
of such a notorious mastermind. Hargen, in fact, has ducked into Pip
Boys, where he is forced to pose as a motionless dummy while the Stooges
remove his clothes for tailoring. He later returns for his coat, which
contains the combination of a safe he plans to crack. A colossal battle
ensues in which the Stooges make expert use of their steam press and
irons, finally uncovering enough cash in the unconscious Hargen's
pocket to pay Skin and Flint for a hundred tailor shops.
New footage includes one scene which
was changed to the Stooges rummaging through Hargen's trousers for
fifty-dollar bills. The segment segues to two new scenes of the
Stooges searching the shop for his whereabouts and receiving reward
money for his capture. In the new footage, Jules White cast a double
as Terry Hargen, a role originally played by Harold Brauer.
