The stooges are managers of “Chopper”, a beefy boxer, and they bet their bank roll on his next fight. When a gangster tells them to have Chopper lose or they’ll lose their lives, the boys decide to play along. They try to soften Chopper up by feeding him rich food and having him spend time with their friend Kitty. The fight gets canceled when Kitty dumps Chopper for his opponent and the two boxers engage in some pre-match fisticuffs that result in a broken hand for the opponent. The stooges think they’ve put one over on the gangsters, only to have the bad guys corner them in a deserted warehouse. Instead of being rubbed out, the boys capture the crooks and get a reward.

Film Review

"There goes Shemp with a left jab. There goes Shemp with a right uppercut. There goes Shemp with a haymaker! There goes Shemp." That's right, Three Stooges fans, Shemp Howard is back with the famous slapstick trio following a solo career that lasted more than a decade. "Fright Night," directed by the incomparable Edward Bernds, marks Shemp's first Three Stooges short at Columbia Pictures, and it happened to be his personal favorite. After all, this short deals with one of Shemp's favorite pastimes: prizefights! In "Fright Night," the Stooges are the proprietors of Muscle Manor, where they train the heavyweight boxer Chopper Kane (Dick Wessel).Here are my favorite highlights from this outstanding short. The overhead shots of the lengthy chase sequence between the Stooges and a gang of mobsters inside a warehouse is some of the most exciting chase footage ever seen in a Three Stooges film; during all the commotion, one of the gangsters named Moo…

Shemp makes a welcomed return to The Three Stooges, though Curly’s stroke was a terribly unfortunate incident. Shemp (with Moe) was one of the original 1922 Stooges (Shemp left in 1932) and here, in 1947, he shows that he still had it. "Fright Night" starts off somewhat slow but, from the night of the fight (just under halfway through the short) till the end, the short is a lot of fun, and Shemp’s performance is hilarious. With his return, Shemp brought the Stooges to a more out-of-place human level, whereas Curly was pure animal. Shemp’s gruff old uncle-like attitude made him much more accessible than Curly, and Shemp was also a much better actor (Curly always sounded like he was reading his lines). This short catches The Three Stooges returning to their original lineup, and the shorts were much better for it.

When Clyde Bruckman devised the scenario for FRIGHT NIGHT, it featured Curly Howard’s character since he was still one of the Three Stooges. By the time filming began, he had left the team due to illness and Shemp Howard replaced him. There’s no indication in the resulting film, however, that Shemp was shoehorned in at the last minute. Without trying to imitate his brother Curly, he asserts himself as a Stooge, his buffoonery smoothly meshing with Moe Howard’s browbeating and Larry Fine’s flakiness. It’s no surprise that Shemp effortlessly interacts with his partners as if he’s been with them for years. After all, he had been with the team before Curly stepped in.In FRIGHT NIGHT, the Stooges are fight managers who try to elude gangsters. Director Edward Bernds deftly executes the slapstick without resorting to tasteless violence. The short is peppered with funny gags, particularly a sequence where Moe manipulates an unconscious thug like a puppet to distract a pursuing thug. F…
