Of Cash and Hash is the 160th 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.


The Stooges are mistaken for three armored car thieves after getting caught in crossfire. Captain Mullin (Vernon Dent) gives the boys a lie detector test, but finds no reason to hold them. He releases them, and they return to work at their restaurant, the Elite Café. Friend Gladys Harmon (Christine McIntyre) stops by the restaurant just as one of the real armored car bandits flees the scene. They then chase the bandit to a spooky old mansion where they and their hideous hatchet man, Angel (Duke York), are hiding. When the mob abducts Gladys, the Stooges come to her rescue and retrieve the stolen money.

Production notes

Of Cash and Hash is a remake of 1948's Shivering Sherlocks, using ample recycled footage from the original.[1]

This was the final film featuring new footage of long-time Stooge character actress Christine McIntyre.[1] She would appear in six additional Stooge films via stock footage.
