Saturday Morning Ringside: Three Stooges in Fling in the Ring (1955)

The Three Stooges get back into the fight game in 1955's "Fling in the Ring", a remake of Shemp's 1st vehicle with the team, "Fright Night", eight years earlier.

The boys are trainers for Chopper Kane (Dick Wessel), but they also work for a mobster named Big Mike, who wants Kane to throw the fight. Chaos, of course, follows.

It's been said that "Fright Night" was Shemp's favorite. This might've been his 2nd favorite because of it.

Stunt double Joe Palma, used in this film for the actor playing Big Mike in certain scenes, would later double for Shemp when they remade some more of the earlier shorts after Shemp's passing.

Rating: B.
