Up in Daisy's Penthouse is the 144th short film released by Columbia Pictures in 1953 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.
The Stooges awake one morning to their mother's cry, "Now that I'm old your father has divorced me!" The letter states that their father (Shemp Howard, pulling double duty as both himself and his father) has just become rich via an oil well and is planning to leave their mother and marry a young gold digging blonde named Daisy (Connie Cezon). The Stooges set off to try and stop the wedding. But since Shemp and his father look exactly alike, Daisy ends up marrying the wrong man. In the finale of the short, the Stooges manage to escape the clutches of the criminals trying to kill them for their father's oil money, and rescue their father.
Up in Daisy's Penthouse is a remake of 3 Dumb Clucks, using minimal footage from the original film. This is noticeable when the trio are on the flagpole, as audio of Curly's "woo woo"s can be heard.
