You know you're in trouble when cheese ends up being the biggest laugh-getter!
While I am not a huge fan of the Three Stooges, I do appreciate their early films with Columbia. They tended to be funnier and far fresher than their films they made starting in the late 40s--when remaking and even remaking their remakes became the norm. Additionally, while his humor sure ain't sophisticated, the early films feature Curly--who was a heck of a lot funnier than his later replacements.
"Horses' Collars" is their fifth film for Columbia. It begins with the trio begin hired as detectives and they are sent out west on a case. There they meet a nice young lady who is about to lose her ranch unless the boys can help her. Naturally, they agree to help her and hilarity follows.
Unfortunately, this short has a lot of energy and nice settings but very, very few laughs. Considering it's big laugh-getter is Curly's reaction when he smells cheese, you know it's not a funny film. Worth seeing if you are a big fan and the worst of their earlier efforts for Columbia.
