This is the first of several shorts from The Three Stooges involving a dumbwaiter, usually involving Curly Howard accidentally destroying the floor of the elevator, causing injury to Larry Fine and Moe Howard (and to himself in real life, on two separate occasions). The dumbwaiter would reappear in Nutty But Nice (1940). This is also the first of 16 Stooge shorts using the word "three" in the title. See more »
The gangsters, who are trying to enter the room where The Three Stooges are hiding, clearly push the door open a couple of times. However, on the Stooges' side, the door does not open at all. See more »

Three Little Pigskins was another funny Three Stooges outing from their early years
What I'm now reviewing here is the fourth Three Stooges short made for Columbia Pictures in which Moe, Larry, and Curley (as it was originally spelled at the time) get mistaken for actual football players and get asked to play in a game. This is the first time the boys get involved in a "mistaken identity" plot and boy, whoever makes that blunder usually regrets it soon enough! Incidentally, additional interest for this short is provided by the fact that this is one of the earliest film appearances of one young woman named Lucille Ball. She, and a couple of other young ladies, seemed game in participating in some of the shenanigans with the boys which makes what they do to them a little fun to watch. My favorite scenes, though, involve seltzer water, a dumbwaiter (basically a hand-held elevator), and many of the dumb football plays involving the boys. Not as hilarious as the first three they did but Three Little Pigskins is funny enough to recommend to any Stooge fan that just can't get enough of Howard, Fine, and Howard.
