April Fool's Day: Three Stooges in Sing a Song of Six Pants (1947)

The Three Stooges (Moe & Shemp Howard and Larry Fine) are tailors down on their luck when a crook on the lam becomes a customer in their store. A delinquent customer, to be sure, but the chaos that follows will have the bad guys wishing they could "Sing a Song of Six Pants":

Supporting player Joe Palma would figure prominently in later shorts. After Shemp passed on, Palma was brought in when they needed to mix in new material with recycled scenes from earlier films involving Shemp. Something they are doing with "Furious 7", opening Friday, in that the late Paul Walker's brothers are serving as doubles for him in some scenes that had to be completed after his death.

Rating: A-.
