The Plot…

Shemp is on the verge of a nervous breakdown.  He is hallucinating and nothing seems to help.  In desperation, Larry and Moe call in Dr. Gesundheit (Sitka).  If he can’t help Shemp then it’s back to the  sanatorium.  Let the good times roll.

Thoughts (beware of spoilers)…

Larry Fine considered this his favorite of all the Stooges’ shorts.

Muhammad Ali was famous for saying, “I’d fight that chump in a phone booth.”  There is an extended scene with our boys fighting Vernon Dent in a phone booth!

Scrambled Brains (1951) rates 3 of 5 stars.
