Editorial Reviews

Get the long and the short of the Three Stooges in this exciting Old West double feature, which contains one feature-length film from the '60s along with a classic short film from the '30s.

The Outlaws is Coming (1965), also known as The Three Stooges Meet the Gunslingers, is a wacky Western in which Larry, Moe and Curly-joe co-star with Adam West (TV's "Batman"), Henry Gibson (TV's "Laugh-In"), longtime Stooge sidekick Emil Sitka and Nancy Kovack (Frankie and Johnny). The Stooges are sent, along with an editor, by a conservationist magazine publisher on the East Coast to inversigate a gunslinger who is wiping out the buffalo population in the West in order to turn the Indians against his enemy, the U.S. Cavalry. With a little help from Annie Oakley and an unusual cache of weapons (including cream pies), they are able to dodge the posse's bullets...and make the West safe for the wild creatures that roam its frontiers.

BONUS SHORT FILM: In Goofs and Saddles(1937), Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Curly Howard are enlisted by Civil War General Muster to help save the country from a notorious cattle rustler.

Did you grow up watching the Three Stooges with Sally Starr? Or Officer Joe Bolton? Were you there for Batmania with Adam West? How about Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In? If the answer is "yes," THE OUTLAWS IS COMING! (1965) is for you.
The Stooges' Curly-Joe era gets a bad rap, but I think it's unfair, as demonstrated by this fun & funny western starrring Moe Howard, Larry Fine, Joe DeRita, Adam West (BATMAN), Nancy Kovack, Henry Gibson (LAUGH-IN), Emil Sitka, Don Lamond (Larry's son-in-law), Mort Mills... and a group of children's show hosts from around the US, the same ones we grew up with, as the OUTLAWS! Despite their ages, the Stooges hilariously generate an ample amount of slapstick, director Norm Maurer (Moe's son-in-law) directs in a casual yet narrative style, and veteran Stooge screenwriter Ellwood Ullman delivers clever & topical gags. Henry Gibson spoofs the '60s as a hippie native American. And, one year before he [climbed] to stardom as the Caped Crusader BATMAN, Adam West costars as the film's hero. For adults, it's a nostalgic trip back. For kids, it's a fun comedy. For everyone, it's Stooge entertainment!
As a bonus, Columbia throws in the funny western spoof GOOFS AND SADDLES (1937) starring the original Curly, Curly Howard.

Sure, this movie doesn't compare with the classic Three Stooges shorts, but it has its moments and provides a few laughs along the way. Moe, Larry and Curly-Joe, getting up in years, perform some of the classic chestnuts and a few new routines with reasonable craftsmanship besides a decent supporting cast led by Adam West, Nancy Kovak, frequent stooge co-star, and a bevy of 1950's and 1960's local television hosts. New York and Philadelphia audiences will fondly remember Officer Joe Bolton and Sally Starr respectively who hosted the afternoon Stoogefests on the local TV stations. Emil Sitka, a stooge regular, provides laughs as he takes on multiple roles. Adam West shows a bit of the wry humor that would win him fame as television's "Batman" or more recently as the Mayor of Quahog on Family Guy.

This was the last feature film for the Stooges and they show their age. Many stooge purists will dismiss the film as sub-par - and by objective standards, it ranks well below their best work. The key here is to appreciate the film for what it is: a pleasant 90-some minutes of light entertainment that is just better than some more contemporary films that are repeated endlessly on broadcast or cable channels.

As has been pointed out in other reviews, this is 1965 and the Stooges, such as they were then constituted, were getting old and had long since toned down their physical slapstick for the most part... Actually though, considering this was their last feature together (minus the abortive TV Pilot Kook's tour five years later)there are some more physical moments in this one than in their prior 60's films so perhaps they knew this was their last "roundup".

Joe DeRita gets a bad rap for not being Curly or Shemp but he had his own style that he brought to the stooges and never set out to copy them. I am not saying he is anywhere near to being in their league when it comes to "stooging" but he was adequate and brought a different dimension to the stooges on screen. Adam West of "Batman" Fame plays the Male Lead Role and as he often demonstrated, his acting style often bordered on seemingly remembering his lines at the last minute before actually delivering them which is a strange quality to be sure. As to the Stooges themselves, Larry comes closest to providing an old-time stooge performance in this one.

The Western Story is actually very creative and coherent with the environmental/buffalo concept and this carries the boys nicely through the film. I also thought it was a unique idea to have the many T.V. Hosts of their Stooge Shorts from local stations across the country appear in the film as the many famous Western Outlaws. These T.V. Hosts were instrumental in the Stooges rebirth on T.V. and they do a nice job in their bit roles...

Thanks to Amazon for making this film available at a reasonable price!

This one has been a personal favorite of mine ever since I was a kid. "The Outlaws Is Coming" was the Stooges' final starring movie, and its humor anticipates the western satire that was yet to come with later films such as "Blazing Saddles".
Like another Stooge movie classic, "The Three Stooges Meet Hercules", the script doesn't take itself too seriously, not only firing jokes at Westerns, but at musical phenomenoms as well (the Stooges' pet skunk is named "Elvis"; a mop-topped Chinaman with a guitar sings "Three Blind Mice"; and one of the outlaws is named Johnny "Ringo", complete with screaming women right out of Beatlemania!).
Here, we get a pre-Batman Adam West filling the shoes of the typically timid Easterner who can barely hold a gun, much less shoot one. Nancy Kovack provides a counter-contrast to West's character as sharpshooter Annie Oakley. Stooge veteran Emil Sitka is on hand as well, along with a pre-Laugh-In Henry Gibson, who nearly steals the show as the Indian Chief's hip-jive talking son.
My favorite scene in the film is the "big showdown", in which West must face off against a band of legendary gunslingers--who (believe it or not) are made fools of because the Stooges poured super-strong printing glue into their holsters! These "fearless men" struggle ridiculously in the city street as they try to extricate their guns from their hips, with hilarious effect. It's definitely fun to watch, and one of the film's highlights.
As with other Stooge films, this one succeeds as well because it's all done with a satirical wink while giving Moe, Larry & Curly Joe room to do their stuff.
Not a bad film for one of the great comedy acts to ride off into the sunset on!
