A PAIN IN THE PULLMAN features the boys inflicting madness on a train. After learning they've been hired to perform in a new show, they hop on board with their pet monkey Joe in hope of success. The stooges continually upset the other passengers (especially heart throb actor Paul Pain), while Bud Jamison (Johnson) tries his best to control the mayhem. Every time he thinks things are finally calm, he retires to his bed only to be rudely awakened again (while banging his noggin on the ceiling of his small room).
Needless to say Joe gets loose and causes as much trouble as the stooges. This short is another fine entry with lots of funny scenes. A couple of highlights are the crab eating scene, and when Curly inadvertently kisses a gal who's talking in her sleep.

I don't know your address...
Up, up and away
Cut to the quick
On the way to le boot...
(Note Joe still perched on the emergency stop chord)
