Lobby card

The Three Stooges. as dishwashers, help an aspiring singer, Carol Lawrence (Storm), and a nightclub owner, Danny Warren (Regan), find love.

Three Stooges appearance

The Stooges rework several bits they performed with Ted Healy at MGM: the plumbing sequences are adapted from Meet the Baron and some of the waiter gags are borrowed from Beer and Pretzels.

Swing Parade of 1946 was filmed near the end of Curly Howard's career. The 42-year-old comedian had suffered a series of minor strokes several months prior to filming, and his performances in their Columbia shorts at that time were often halting and slow. By the time of Swing Parade of 1946, he had lost a considerable amount of weight, and lines had creased his face. The scene where he recreates the maze of pipes from A Plumbing We Will Go (1940) has been described as sluggish and lethargic.[1]

Director Nicholas Ray worked on the screenplay. His work was uncredited. This was Ray's only collaboration with the Three Stooges.
