Larry Explains The Joke: "SPOOKS!" (Three Stooges, 1953) (video)

In the 3D comedy "Spooks!", the boys are stuck in a haunted house...

...along with a mad doctor, his henchman, and a gorilla.

When the Stooges finally make a break for the front door...
...they're thwarted by an elastic doorknob.

But someone was afraid the audience wouldn't get that this was a door...
...and that Moe was trying to open it.

So they had Larry dub in the lines: "The door! Open it, Moe!"

Whew! We almost didn't get that one!

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it.  Thanks for watching!
