Fifi Blows Her Top is the 184th 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.

Plot[edit]

The Stooges reminisce about their wartime romances in Europe. After they finish their tales, they discover that Joe's girl Fifi (Vanda Dupre), whom he left behind in Paris, has moved in next door. The only problem is that she is now married to a very jealous and unappreciative husband (Philip Van Zandt).

Joe celebrates his reunion with long-lost love Fifi in Fifi Blows Her Top. Note the cigarette in Moe's left hand.

Typical Stooge antics result in ruining Fifi's dress, and dressing her in a pair of pajamas is an invitation for her husband to enter the scene. The husband turns out to be a real cad, and when Fifi overhears him tell about his plans to find a new wife, she clobbers him and goes back to Joe.

Production notes[edit]

The first half of Fifi Blows Her Top is a remake of 1950's Love at First Bite, using minimal stock footage from the original.[1]

Fifi Blows Her Top marks the final appearance of longtime foil Philip Van Zandt. The actor committed suicide shortly after filming wrapped, and did not live to see its release.[1]
