Featuring Moe Howard, Larry Fine, Shemp Howard
The Three Stooges sell used chariots in ancient Egypt. They meet king Rootintootin and discover a plot to steal tax money.
I like the Stooges best when their timing is sharp, and it’s pretty sharp in this one. There really isn’t much in the way of fantastic content, though; outside of the fact that one of them pretends to be a bull-headed oracle and Shemp disguises himself as a mummy, there’s little here. Despite a similar title and the reappearance of King Rootintootin, this is not a remake of WE WANT OUR MUMMY.
