The Three Stooges, as dishwashers, help an aspiring singer, Carol Lawrence (Storm), and a nightclub owner, Danny Warren (Regan), find love.

Three Stooges appearance

The Stooges rework several bits they performed with Ted Healy at MGM: the plumbing sequences are adapted from Meet the Baron and several waiter gags are borrowed from Beer and Pretzels.[1]

Swing Parade of 1946 was filmed over a period of 24 days between July 30 and August 25, 1945.[1] 42-year-old Curly Howard had suffered a series of minor strokes several months prior to filming, and his performances in their Columbia shorts at that time were often sluggish and lethargic. By the time of Swing Parade of 1946, he had lost a considerable amount of weight, and had difficulty maintaining his trademark falsetto voice. However, he appears somewhat more healthy and animated in this film, possibly due to The Stooges' supporting roles being less strenuous than in the shorts, where Curly was in virtually every scene.[2] He is also billed as "Jerome Howard" in the credits, for the first time in many years.

Director Nicholas Ray worked uncredited on the screenplay. This was Ray's only collaboration with the Three Stooges.
