1947

The Three Stooges (Moe, Larry, Shemp) are tailors and are heavily in debt. Could a big reward for the capture of a fugitive bank robber answer their financial prayers? You can find more information regarding this film on its IMDb page.


Sing a Song of Six Pants is the 102nd short subject starring American slapstick comedy team The Three Stooges. The trio made a total of 190 shorts for Columbia Pictures between 1934 and 1959.

Plot

The Stooges run a tailor shop that is about to be repossessed by the Skin and Flint Finance Corporation. When the Boys hear about a big reward for fugitive bank robber 'Terry "Slippery Fingers" Hargan' (Tiny Brauer), they think that catching him might end their financial woes. Hargan conveniently ducks into their shop as the officer enters and leaves a suit with a safe combination in its pocket. After his girlfriend (Virginia Hunter) fails to retrieve the combination, Hargan returns with his henchmen, and a wild mêlée follows. The Stooges miss out on the reward but wind up with the crook's bankroll to pay off their debts.

Production notes

}
The title is a takeoff on "Sing a Song of Sixpence," the classic English nursery rhyme. The name of the tailor shop is "Pip Boys," a parody of the auto service chain Pep Boys originally opened in Philadelphia in 1921.
Sing a Song of Six Pants was remade in 1953 as Rip, Sew and Stitch, using ample recycled footage from the original.< name=solo/> It is one of four Stooge shorts that fell into the public domain after the copyright lapsed in the 1960s (the other three being Malice in the Palace, Brideless Groom, and Disorder in the Court). As such, these four shorts frequently appear on inexpensive VHS or DVD compilations.
