A couple of bungling idiots (Jimmy Durante and Jack Pearl) are abandoned in the deep jungles of Africa by Baron Munchausen.

Meet the Baron is a delightful comic romp from people who know good, zany comedy. Jack Pearl is positively lovable as the phony Baron Munchausen. His over-exaggerated tales are a genuine treat! Jimmy Durante is just as fun, playing a typical nitwit wiseguy who helps Pearl pull this scheme off.
"Isn't this humiliating?! Hiding under a bed, and not a husband in sight!"
But I'm here to talk about the Three Stooges (and Ted Healy, by association), and if you're looking for some good material from our boys, I'm here to tell you you'll find it here! The group even gets the highlight of the entire movie, when a woman's shower room breaks, and our handy man heroes have to fix it amidst scantily clad ladies completely blindfolded!
Its stuff like that which reminds me of why I'm a fan of this group. Thank you to Meet the Baron for sequences that fun. Thank you to Meet the Baron for being a wild pleasure even on its own. And most of all, thank you Meet the Baron for the shower room musical number featuring nude girls with water jets covering their naughty bits. You know I enjoyed that.

This is a very funny movie, and not just because Healy and the Stooges are in it. Jack Pearl and Jimmy Durante make a great comedy duo and provide alot of laughs. And what many have said is true, when the Stooges show up they steal the show. Their attempt to fix the water pipes for the girls shower is hilarious.! Getting this and "Gold Raiders" on DVD is well worth your money. "Vas you there Sharlie?"

This is a funny classic movie to begin with, with radio star Jack Perl playing the phony Baron Munchausen, and Jimmy Durante as his sidekick. It would be worth watching anyway, but the Stooges REALLY make this film a treat, and practically steal the show.
