Movie Quote of the Day (The Three Stooges, on Their Medical Ability)

"We graduated with the highest temperatures in our class."—“Dr. Fine” (played by Larry Fine), summing up the academic prowess of the Three Stooges in medical school, in Men in Black (1934), story and screenplay by Felix Adler, directed by Ray McCarey

Contrary to what you might think upon seeing the title of this Three Stooges short, the trio had not made some sort of precursor of the Will Smith-Tommy Lee Jones blockbuster. More likely, the title was a parody of Men in White, the hit Sidney Kingsley Broadway play adapted in 1934 as a vehicle for “The King” of Hollywood, Clark Gable.
