Editorial Reviews

Six two-reel shorts, including:

Calling All Curs (1939) Veterinarians Moe, Larry and Curly have gone to the dogs, but when they attempt to replace a priceless pooch that's been dognapped while under their care, they really wind up in the doghouse. They're barking up the wrong tree if they think they can get away with this scheme!

Disorder in the Court (1936) When a sexy nightclub dancer is put on trial for murder, her only hope is three star witnesses: Moe, Larry and Curly. The Stooges are only too happy to help, but when they show up in court to testify, their antics disrupt the proceedings, and the defense never rests.

Dizzy Detectives (1943) Rookie gumshoes Moe, Larry and Curly kick off their new careers with a case that proves to be way over their heads. It seems a gorilla is committing a series of burglaries, and they may be the only ones to catch him. Can they crack the case before the big ape really goes bananas?

Flat Foot Stooges (1938) A crooked fire truck salesman finds himself in hot water when he sabotages one of Fire Chief Kelly's trucks. While Larry, Moe and Curly pamper Chief Kelly's fire truck-pulling horses, a blaze engulfs the firehouse and puts the firefighting Stooges to the ultimate test.

Crime on Their Hands (1948) Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but they're not Shemp's. When he mistakes the Punjab Diamond for a breath mint, Shemp faces the end of an unsterilized knife in the hands of Dapper Dan, who stole the diamond and wants it back ˆ and he's not waiting until it passes naturally.

Who Done it? (1949) When The Phantom Gang strikes again, millionaire Old Man Goodrich calls the Alert Detective Agency and hires the Stooges to protect him. But Moe, Larry and Shemp arrive just after Goodrich is kidnapped, and are thwarted by a seductress who administers a near-lethal dose of distraction.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT DVD!!! May 2, 2003
By A Customer
This DVD is great. The quality is very good. "Disorder In The Court" could have been a little better. It's better than those public domain copies, but it's still not at it's best. AMC's copy of this short is a little better. But, the print here is still very good. The picture overall is very sharp and detailed. And one thing great about this DVD is that it's "Remastered in High Definition". The picture is really good. It's great to see the Stooges in High Definition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable but not consistently great August 3, 2006
As others have mentioned, the picture quality on this disc isn't always the greatest. We know that there are better prints available; it isn't like these are the best surviving prints and there could only be so much digital restoration done on them. They're far from unwatchable, but it is annoying to see these grainy prints when better ones are out there. And once again, not all of the chosen shorts have much, or even anything, to do with the theme of 'Cops and Robbers.' The shorts included are:

'Disorder in the Court' (1936), which is one of their all-time best and a bona-fide classic. This is also widely considered to be Bud Jamison's best work with the boys. It seems like this short is in many fans' Top 10 of their personal favorites. However, since it is one of the 4 shorts that accidentally fell into the public domain (probably due to a clerical oversight), there are numerous releases of it already. It would seem wrong for it not to have been released on DVD, since it's such a classic, but it could have been included on another disc so that a lesser-seen short relevant to the topic could have been put here in its place.

'Flat Foot Stooges' (1938) is above average, though not really a classic or one of their most memorable shorts. I personally like 'False Alarms' better when it comes to their firefighter-themed shorts. However, it is very solid and enjoyable. This short was directed by the great Charley Chase, and though most of the shorts he did with the boys are more plot-centered as opposed to focusing on the slapstick and violence, this one has more of both in it than usually. I also enjoyed seeing veteran character actor Chester Conklin as Chief Kelly.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad Quality For A DVD! September 3, 2002
By A Customer
These shorts contained in this collection are pretty funny. But, the materials used to transfer these on DVD are not at their best. Why can't Columbia use the original 35mm film masters like what they did to the VHS copies. I know, Columbia is just plain lazy. All the shorts on this DVD are very grainy and are not too sharp. There is one good news about this DVD. There are NO edited scenes. Remember what happened to `Three Little Beers'. All shorts are complete and unedited in this collection. I also see that Columbia is releasing their 3 stooges DVD by theme. But let me say just one thing. The two shorts, `Calling All Curs' and `Flat Foot Stooges', have nothing to do with the title "Cops and Robbers". In `Flat Foot Stooges', the stooges are firemen and in `Calling All Curs', the stooges are animal doctors. Perhaps, the people working at Columbia don't know anything about the 3 stooges. The next 3 stooges DVD is "G.I. Stooge". It comes out on October 8, 2002. Check out my review for it to see more downfalls and mistakes Columbia did to that collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Again Columbia Plays Fast And Loose With Their Fans July 17, 2002
It should be painfully obvious to anyone who knows the shorts of the Three Stooges that the films included on these DVDs have only a cursory relationship to the titles of the collection. Cops and Robbers? Well, one could argue that there are robbers - or at the very least bad guys - on this collection, but there are precious few cops. The title Calling All Curs parodies a police call popular in 30s and 40s films. But it's called Curs because they are involved with dogs. Not exactly police.
Likewise with Flat Foot Stooges. A flat foot is a policeman or at best a private detective. But in this instance the Stooges are firemen. The Shemp entries in this volume are the best films in the collection and actually have something to do with the title. So does Dizzy Detectives and that's a nice still from this film for the cover.
But there are many films the Stooges did with the cops and robbers theme that would better suit a likewise titled volume. I agree there should be more shorts on these collections, some extras, and no editing. And has anyone noticed that the supposed release date of July 28 is a Sunday?
