Tagline The Stooges are in the wrong place at the wrong time when an armored car is robbed.
Shivering Sherlocks a 1948 film starring American slapstick comedy team The Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Shemp Howard). Is the 104th short film released by Columbia Pictures starring The Three Stooges. The comedians released 190 short films for the studio between 1934 and 1959.
The Stooges are mistaken for three armored car thieves. Captain Mullins (Vernon Dent) gives the boys a lie detector test, but finds no reason to hold them. He releases them, under protective custody, to Gladys Harmon (Christine McIntyre), owner of the Elite Café, who gives them an alibi. They try to return the favor by working at the Café, but have trouble with this.
When Gladys is informed that she has inherited some money and a spooky old mansion, the Stooges escort her to check out the property, where the real armored car bandits and their hideous hatchet man, Angel (Duke York), are hiding. While the Stooges are distracted due to Larry getting something to open the door and Shemp talking to Moe, Gladys has her mouth covered and is dragged inside. The Stooges go in to search for her. Gladys is meanwhile tied to a chair and gagged. Angel enters the room and seems about to attack her, but hears the Stooges and goes after them. The Stooges encounter him and he chases them through the house, but Shemp is able to trap all three criminals in barrels and they are arrested. Gladys has meanwhile somehow been freed and watches this happily. Meanwhile, Shemp accidentally drops a barrel of flour on Larry and Moe.
