Stooges Go to the Ducks
Ducking They Did Go, A (1939)

*** (out of 4)

Decent short has the Three Stooges running into con men who convinces the boys to go out and sell memberships to a fake duck hunting club. The boys end up selling to a bunch of police so when they take them to the club they learn that there aren't any ducks so they must do their best to come up with some. This is yet another pretty good short that manages to have quite a few laughs even if the end result isn't one of the best in the series. There are several funny moments here but one of the highlights has to be when Curly accidentally shoots a hole in the boat they're in so Larry shoots another to let the water out. Another funny site is when Moe is bent over hunting not knowing there's a duck on his back, which of course Larry sees and tries to shoot. The start of the film deals with the boys stealing watermelons and getting caught. This early stuff isn't nearly as funny as we get some gags repeated from previous films (which granted, did happen a lot). Fans of the series will no doubt find this to be a funny one but if someone's new then they'd probably want to start off with one of the better classics.
