Independent Films, Film Profiles
Cash and Carry is the 25th short subject starring American slapstick comedy team the Three Stooges. The trio made a total of 190 shorts for Columbia Pictures between 1934 and 1959.The film opens with the Three Stooges, as prospectors, coming home to their shack in the city dump. Finding it inhabited by a young woman and her crippled younger brother, Jimmy, they decide to help raise the $500 needed for a leg operation for the boy. They immediately find a can full of money ("canned coin," as Curly calls it), which turns out to be the $62 the boy and his sister have already saved for the operation. Two con-men cheat the Stooges out of the $62 and their car for a map they claim will lead to a treasure. Following the map, the Stooges drill into the United States Treasury, where they are arrested. The film ends happily when President Franklin D. Roosevelt learns of the plight of the boy and the Stooges. He both pardons the Stooges and pays for Jimmy's operation.
