"Heavenly Daze" (1948, short number 109 in the Columbia series) begins unusually on a supernatural plane. Shemp seeks admittance into Heaven but is told by a St. Peter type (played by Moe in a long silvery beard) that he must reform the other two Stooges before he can enter. There is some good fun as he frightens not only Larry and Moe, who have inherited his $140 and are planning a swindle, but the now-unacceptable black butler. It would have been better, perhaps, had Shemp been invisible to viewers as well as the Stooges, but that would have called for expensive special effects.

"The Ghost Talks" (1949, number 113) has the boys in a haunted castle that has actual ghosts, the chief of which is the spirit of Peeping Tom. Here, in a flashback, we see he did not look on purpose at Lady Godiva, but his punishment was swift and terrible: a pie in the face. When a very bored sounding Godiva shows up in a bathing suit and rides off with the suit of armor inhabited by Tom, pies from the past end this uneven film.

"Hokus Pokus" (1949, number 115) has the boys waiting hand and foot (and foot in mouth) on a beautiful blonde (Mary Ainslee) who is in a wheelchair to defraud an insurance company. Working in a theater to help her out, the boys run into a hypnotist who tries to get publicity by getting them out on a flagpole to dance. With obviously painted backdrops, there are no thrills; but their efforts to get back in do tie in with the original plot, which is not always the case in this series. --Frank Behrens

An all Jules White offering of Shemp shorts.

Heavenly Daze - In my Top 10 of Shemp episodes. Shemp gives a great performance as the spirit who comes back to earth to haunt the mischievous Moe and Larry. And special attention must be payed to one-time supporting player Sam McDaniel, who nearly steals the short playing a frightened butler. I really don't know why he wasn't brought back for more shorts, that guy was hilarious. 5 stars

The Ghost Talks - A mixed bag. The plot is thin, but the stooges and especially Shemp give it some sparkle with terrific one-liners and some nice sight gags. Love when that frog goes down Shemp's shirt. 3 stars

Hokus Pokus - One of the more underrated episodes. Shemp's shadowboxing routine versus Vernon Dent may be his funniest yet (You looking for trouble, knock this off my shoulder). I also enjoyed the entire apartment scene, waking up, getting shaved and dressed, and preparing Mary's breakfast. Funny stuff all around. 5 stars

The middle short is a bit average, but overall I rate this a 5 star tape. A worthy addition to any Stooge collection.

HEAVENLY DAZE (1948) - An instant Shemp classic! This one is in my top five favorite Shemp shorts. HEAVENLY DAZE was made when Shemp rejoined the stooges (his debut short being FRIGHT NIGHT).
THE GHOST TALKS (1949) - A very funny short! The stooges, as movers, come face to face with poltergeists when they're hired to clear out a haunted castle.
HOKUS POKUS (1949) - A hilarious stooge short! The scene where Shemp is trying to set up the table is very funny! The flagpole scene is the highlight.
HEAVENLY DAZE, THE GHOSTS TALKS, and HOKUS POKUS: 3 well-done and very funny stooge shorts. A must-own for every stooge fan (especially Shemp fans!).

There is actually some vague notion of thematic unit to the trio of shorts the Three Stooges did for Columbia that are included on this video as Moe, Larry and Shemp deal with various aspects of the supernatural:
"Heavenly Daze" is a 1948 short where we begin with Moe as Mortimer, the keeper of the Pearly Gates, who has to deny Shemp entrance into the Heaven. Shemp is given a choice between getting an asbestos suit or returning to earth to reform Moe and Larry, and returns to earth to haunt his cousins. This proves to be rather difficult and the short ends up with a lot of whipped cream pies being thrown. This short is the best one of the bunch on this particular video.
"The Ghost Talks" is a 1949 effort where the Stooges are movers from the A to Z Express Company who are supposed to be moving things out of a castle. However, the ghost of Peeing Tom (the guy who checked out Lady Godiva during her infamous ride) causes all sorts of mischief because he does not want to move. This sounds like an idea that might go someplace, but it really does not.
"Hokus Pocus," another 1949 short, begins with the Stooges attending poor Mary, a blonde in a wheelchair who is trying to scam an insurance company for big bucks (the boys do not know this). The next thing we now the Stooges are dealing with the great hypnotist Svengarlic, who sends them out of a flagpole. Of course, something happens to Svengarlic so the boys come out of their trance, thereby setting up the final collision of the two plot lines. This has several decent bits by the boys and the best ending of the three episodes.
