Three Stooges appearance
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, had difficulty maintaining his trademark falsetto voice, 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.
Director Nicholas Ray worked on the screenplay. His work was uncredited. This was Ray's only collaboration with the Three Stooges.
