The Stooges are itinerate tinkers who are not above "creating" work, and are caught punching holes in workers' lunchboxes and have to run away. They end up on a skyscraper construction site and pass themselves off as "the best riveters that ever riveted," where they get put to work... on the 97th story!

Bruce Bennett played Tarzan in a 1938 serial under his real name, Herman Brix. He later enjoyed success in several film classics through the 1950s, among them THE TREASURE OF SIERRA MADRE (1948) and MILDRED PIERCE (1945).

A transcription of a deleted sequence with Lucille Lund, and a couple more scenes that did not make the final cut of HOW HIGH IS UP?, is presented in The Three Stooges Journal # 123 (Fall 2007).

In the construction site scenes, several of the actors have multiple roles, changing their wardrobe slightly as needed from scene to scene... in the line of job applicants turned away, riveters, and girder crew.
