Malice in the Palace is the 117th short subject starring American slapstick comedy team the Three Stooges. The trio made a total of 190 shorts for Columbia Pictures between 1934 and 1959.
Running Time: 16 Minutes
MPAA Ratings: NR
The Stooges, while running the Cafe Casbah Bah (a Middle Eastern restaurant) and attempting to prepare a meal for customers Hassan Ben Sober (Vernon Dent) and Ginna Rumma (George J. Lewis), discover a plan that their hungry customers are hatching. These two thieves are attempting to rob the tomb of King Rootintootin, which contains a priceless diamond, but they discover that the emir of Schmow (Johnny Kascier) has already gotten his hands on the diamond.
Curly Howard is sadly missed, but Moe, Larry and Shemp deliver plenty of laughs in this uneven 1949-51 collection. Needless to say, the Edward Bernds-directed shorts are preferable to Jules White's heavy-handedness. Among the best Shemps of the period: "Fuelin' Around,""Vagabond Loafers,""Punchy Cowpunchers,""Three Arabian Nuts" and "Hula-La-La" (producer Hugh McCollum's only directorial effort). However, "Pest Man Wins" marks the beginning of Stock Footage Central. When Bernds and McCollum departed from Columbia in 1952, things were never the same.(Scott T. Rivers)
