Stooges Wiki

Movie Maniacs is the thirteenth Columbia Pictures short subject to star the Three Stooges.


The boys are stowaways on a train box-car filled with furniture bound for the "Hollywood Storage Co.," and they hope to break into movies together and become stars. They arrive at the Carnation Pictures Studios. Fuller Rath, the studio general manager, previously received a telegram from the Home Office telling him that a certain "Mr. Smith and his two assistants" will arrive to take over the supervision of the studios. He mistakes the Stooges as the executives and gives them free reign over the studios, where they proceed to disrupt and destroy the production of a romantic drama.
