Pop Goes the Easel

Pop Goes the Easel (1935)

1 corrected entry

(0 votes)

Directed by: Del Lord

Starring: Bobby Burns, Curly Howard, Larry Fine, Moe Howard

Genres: Comedy, Short

Corrected entry: Moe says "Pick out two" and holds his hand out (classic Stooges gag). Curly picks two fingers and Moe pokes him in the eyes with the two he picked. You can plainly see, however, that Moe pokes Curly a couple of inches above the eyes, in the forehead.

Matty Blast

Correction: This is hardly a mistake, as that is the way in which the eye poke was done (hitting the forehead just above the eyes). I'm not sure if the writer is implying that Moe usually DOES really poke Curly in the eyes, or perhaps (giving him the benefit of the doubt) he's trying to say that the subterfuge is simply a bit more obvious here than usual.

Continuity mistake: Curly is about to throw a lump of clay, and a woman is posing in the background. The woman is almost directly to Curly's right, and Curly throws the clay straight ahead. The next shot shows the clay hitting the woman on the side of the face, which is completely impossible.
