Ending[edit]

  • After Curly says he wants a beer-Moe and Larry are so enraged they bonk Curly on the head and throw him back into jail! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 134.53.145.181 (talk) 15:06, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

colorized photo[edit]

It seems to me that the non-colorized version of the first screenshot should be used: File:BeerbarrellBW.jpg. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 21:33, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

Is the premise here really Prohibition, when that law was repealed more than a dozen years earlier?[edit]

Since many of the Stooges' shorts included topical allusions, I had always assumed this film must have been one of their first ones. National Prohibition would have then been either still in force, or a very recent memory in the minds of the audience. As it turns out, this short was one of the last to feature Curley, released more than a dozen years after the end of Prohibition. So is the premise here really Prohibition, or was there some other reason, in the immediate postwar era, that beer was difficult to obtain?

Moreover, early in the film we see the boys exiting a bar that didn't have any beer to sell, but that bar was clearly open for business and presumably had other kinds of alcohol on offer.68.111.227.156 (talk) 06:36, 14 December 2015 (UTC)
