Stooges Wiki

Three Little Sew and Sews is the thirty-sixth Columbia Pictures short subject starring the Three Stooges.


The Stooges knock two foreign spies (Phyllis Barry and Harry Semels) cold in Three Little Sew and Sews.

The Stooges are sailors employed in a ships' tailor shop. The three steal some officers' uniforms in order to go ashore. While pretending to be an Admiral, Curly and his "aides" (Moe and Larry) are tricked into stealing a submarine by a pair of spies. The Stooges eventually capture the spies, but whilst reenacting the capture for the real Admiral, Curly accidentally detonates a bomb. The last scene shows the Stooges as Angels being "pursed" by the angry Admiral/Devil.




  • When Curly opens the top of the sub, the strings directing the torpedoes become visible.
  • Strings are also clearly visible in the final scene where the Stooges have become angels
  • At the beginning of the short, you can hear the director telling Curly to get out of the tub.
