| The stooges don't miss a beat...
Well, there's no doubt that Shemp Howard had some large shoes to fill in the wake of Curly, but "Fright Night" in my eyes shows that Shemp was definitely the right man for the job in being the new "3rd stooge."

In fact, Shemp was so good, that it makes me wonder what the rest of the stooges career would have been like had they sought out comedians like Shemp, who had their own style instead of replacing him with guys who fit the Curly mold--short, fat and bald.

Getting back to this short, Shemp must have had a great time filming this one, seeing as how it revolved around his favorite sport of boxing. In fact, I believe Shemp himself said that this was his favorite of all his stooge films.

While "Fright Night" is not exactly perfect, I would say that the Shemp-era stooges got off to a great start and the roll would continue for several shorts after this one, and a few that were all- time classics.
