USA, 1934

Shemp Howard, Harry Gribbon, Russell Hicks
Directed by Ralph Staub


Two jerks are assistants on Mr. Smith's archealogical dig for the mummy of Egyptian King Phooey. Shemp learns that the mummy will be displayed in Smith's hotel room, and he disguises himself as Phooey in an attempt to be near Mary, Smith's daughter. Phooey's cult worshippers retrieve the mummy, and when Harry learns that the Egyptian cult will honor Phooey with a month of food and women, he jockies to take Shemp's place. Unknown to both, after one month, the mummy will be reburied where it can never be found again.

19 minute short film, one of the so-called Vitaphone Shorts featuring Shemp Howard from "The Three Stooges" on his own.
