Storyline

In this 100% FICTIONAL film, in which no one plays "Self." Carol Lawrence (Gale Storm), an aspiring singer, goes to a new night club owned by Danny Warren (Phil Regan), whose father Daniel Warren (Russell Hicks (I)') doesn't approve of the club and wants Danny to join him in the family business. Carol is suspected of being a process server and is thrown out of the club. An extremely long arm of coincidence leads her to the elder Warren's office and he hires her as a process server. She returns but gets a singing job this time so foregoes serving the cease-and-desist notice. The Three Stooges are on hand as waiters and Connee Boswell, Louis Jordan, Will Osborne and Mary Treen provide the music and songs in addition to Gale Storm on "Oh, Buddy" and "On the Sunny Side of the Street."

Curly: I knew it! I could see it was love at first sight.
Moe: Quiet, feather-brain.
[hits him in the head]
Moe: It ain't that kind of an attachment. She's a process server.
CurlyLarry: A what?
Carol Lawrence: Oh, please let me explain. I did start out to serve Danny with this paper, but after you were so kind to me and I met Danny, I just couldn't.
Moe: Sounds good.
Carol Lawrence: Oh, you've got to believe me. I wouldn't do anything to hurt Danny. Here, I'll prove it to you.

a lot of swinging...and not just from Moe
4 November 2014 | by beauzeeSee all my reviews

the stooges take a small departure from their usual high powered rough house antics and the change will not detract 99% of Stooges fans...I looked that up!

good screenplay, smoothly directed...with great musical spots, talking about Louis Jordan and Gail Storm.

something about a struggling club run by a rich man's kid...Dad wants the whole enterprise to fail to teach his Son a lesson. but the very cute Gail swings in (she's the recently hired bearer of bad news) and the kid is gaga.

the stooges are the enforcers > they will cause as many impediments as possible to block the foreclosure, as they can...with an emphasis on keeping Gail (six years shy of "My Little Margie") in the "spotlight".
