MOONLIGHT AND CACTUS

On shore leave from the Merchant Marines, Tom Garrison, four buddies, Stubby, Slugger, Punchy and Lucky (Eddie Quillan, Murray Alper, Shemp Howard, Tom Kennedy), and the ship's band (The Mitchell Ayres Orchestra) head for Tom's San Diego cattle ranch. The local agricultural school is running the ranch during Garrison's absence, and Tom is shocked to find that all the students are girls, led by ranch foreman Lou Ferguson (Elyse Knox), housekeeper Abigail (Minerva Urecal) and Patty, Maxene and Laverne Andrews as the ranchhands and entertainment. While Tom was away, cattle have been disappearing. Tom and Lou hire neighbor Pasqualito (Leo Carrillo) and his Indian friend (Frank Lackteen) to help track down the thieves. Actually, it's Pasqualito that's behind the cattle-napping.

Meantime, Punchy, Stubby and Slugger are determined to get back the money they lost to Lucky in craps, involving the Andrews Sisters in their schemes. After Lucky falls for Patty, one of Punchy's (Shemp) ideas has him dressing in drag as Patty, and serenading Lucky while he tries to pick his pocket.

OILY TO BED, OILY TO RISE

Widow Jenkins has just sold her farm to three swindlers. Meanwhile, Curly has the uncanny talent of having his wishes come true, and when he wishes for a car, the boys find one... the swinders' abandoned car. Driving to the Jenkins farm, they're treated to a nice meal and greeted by the woman's three beautiful daughters. To repay her for the hospitality, the Stooges attempt to fix the water pump and accidentally discover that the farm is sitting on an oil well. Realizing that the widow's been swindled, the boys set out to stop the crooks and win the hearts of her three daughters.
