When Moe and Larry are done shaking hands after they find out all the oil is gone, stock footage from Oily to Bed, Oily to Rise (1939) comes in when Curly rises up with the oil and Moe and Larry are still shaking hands. See more »
I consider nearly every Besser stooge short to be a complete throwaway, but this is an exception imo, and it's all due to everyone's favorite middleman, Larry. For whatever reasons during this time period, Porcupine seems to give it his all in this particular episode, more than making up for the man-child antics of Joe, and playing brilliantly of Moe during the outdoor scenes when the 2 stooges are mining for uranium. Too bad that this rare bit of actual "comedy" from the 57-58 preiod couldn't have been their last short instead of the sh**-fest that is "Sappy Bullfighters".
