Jack Haley and Shemp Howard play pickpockets Elmer and Wilbur, who lift an antique pocket watch from a Navy Admiral. On the lam, they run into a Naval recruiting office and wind up enlisting. Failing in their attempts to convince the recruiting doctor that they're 4-F, our heroes wind up in the platoon of CPO Lambert (Lionel Stander). The bumbling recuits are soon banished to the recruits' center, where they mistakenly give a reluctant haircut and shave to a visiting European naval dignitary. Again banished, this time to garbage detail, the boys encounter the dignitary once more, but unknown to them, he's actually a foreign spy.

Shemp was paid $125 for this short.

Jack Haley ('Elmer') was a popular stage and radio comedian, who is forever immortalized to audiences as the 'Tin Man' from THE WIZARD OF OZ (1939).

Prolific character actor Lionel Stander ('Lambert') was blacklisted in the 1950s after the McCarthy hearings, but his career rebounded in the 1960s, and he's probably best remembered for costarring in the late 1970s - early 1980s television series HART TO HART.

HOW HIGH IS UP?

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!
