Shot in the Frontier is the 157th short film released by Columbia Pictures in 1954 starring American slapstick comedy team The Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Shemp Howard). The comedians released 190 short films for the studio between 1934 and 1959.


It is only after their nuptials that the Stooges discover that the Noonan brothers took a liking to the wives during the Stooges' recent absence, and vowed to kill our heroes if the weddings occurred. After the Sheriff/Justice of the Peace leaves, the Stooges are stalked by the Noonan brothers, engaging in a slapstick gun battle, and in the end, a fist fight.

Production notes[edit]

Shot in the Frontier was filmed on October 26–28, 1953, nearly one year prior to its release.[1] It is a parody of the 1952 Stanley Kramer Western High Noon.[2]
