Scotched in Scotland is a 1954 film starring American slapstick comedy team The Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Shemp Howard). It was the 158th short film released by Columbia Pictures starring The Three Stooges. The comedians released 190 short films for the studio between 1934 and 1959.
The Stooges are detective school graduates shipped off to Scotland. Dressed in kilts and talking in phony Scottish accents, the Stooges (as McMoe, McLarry, and McShemp) are given the task of guarding the prized possessions of the castle's owner (Herbert Evans). The castle staff is actually ransacking the place while the boys sleep there, though they eventually get the baddies.
Scotched in Scotland is a remake of 1948's The Hot Scots, using ample recycled footage from the original film. A whistling, howling wind-like sound is added to the soundtrack to give the film a more "spooky" effect; this was not done in The Hot Scots.
