On his way to Red Mesa to insure mine owners against loss from raids on their ore shipments, George O'Brien is ambushed by the raiders, and is accidentally saved by the Three Stooges who run a traveling variety store. O'Brien sells mine owner John Sawyer and his foreman Sandy Evans on allowing him to insure and guard their shipments since they have no help from the bumbling sheriff. He hires to Stooges, Laura Mason and Doc Mason, Laura's ex-physician-turned-drunk grandfather. O'Brien's first move is to trap the bandits headed by saloon owner Taggart and his henchman Clete by using the Stooges to inform Taggart that O'Brien will escort the gold shipment, but George plans on having the Stooges take the actual shipment in another wagon. His plans backfire when Doc Mason, drunk in Taggart's saloon, accidentally informs Taggart of the real plans.Written by

This is a rare gem if you get to see it. The Three Stooges were locked into a contract at Columbia for about 23 years that severely restricted their activities outside of their well known shorts. This was a rare opportunity for them to show what they could do when given the chance. They were comic relief but their part was important in this feature western. It was made by the director who directed them at Columbia and I think they enjoyed getting to stretch their wings and do a feature film. A lot of people have said they did not have the talent to carry feature films like Laurel and Hardy and the Marx Brothers but this showed that if they had gotten the right material, they could have pulled it off. If you can find Gold Raiders, it is worth watching.
