The Stooges are quitely minding their own business in
jail when their Ma sends them a letter informing them of their Pa's
plans to wed a young philly named Daisy. Knowing that she's probably
a gold-digger, the Stooges break out of jail to prevent such a disaster.
Daisy, who's linked with two gangsters, Butch and Chopper, plan to
kill Pa and collect his money. Hmmm, they saw that one coming a mile
away, so Curly, who resembles his father (he plays dual roles), doubles
for Pa at the wedding in Daisy's penthouse. Complications arise, however,
when the real Pa arrives during the wedding. As a result the two crooks
chase the Stooges up a flagpole, break the pole, and watch the trio
fall two stories below on top of Pa, who just happens to be in front
of the hotel.
One of the funniest bits in this short was the scene where the Stooges
were in the hat shop looking to get Curly dudded up to look his
best for the wedding. I won't describe the scene, but keep an eye
out for it the next time you see the short.
Curly's part as a dual-role of himself and his Pa was a great idea
that I felt was underused in this short.
In the remake Up In Daisy's Penthouse (1953), Shemp plays Old Man
