Set in Arthurian times, the stooges decide to help their friend Cedric the Blacksmith win the hand of the fair princess Elaine. At night the group sneaks into the castle to serenade Elaine, but pick the wrong window and are caught by the King. Tossed in the dungeon, the boys escape with Cedric’s help and manage to foil the plans of the Black Prince who was plotting against the King. All turns out well when the grateful King allows Cedric to marry Elaine.

Film Review

This short is a different version of many of the episodes that feature Christine McIntyre; she is being forced to marry a man she hates while the man she loves is locked up in prison, and the Stooges come to her rescue. This episode contains the usually high laugh count of the Stooges with outstanding laughs in the scene in which they attempt to break out of prison. But the real classic scene here is one of the best scenes of all Stooge shorts. It is when Shemp thinks he is talking to McIntyre (covered up in bed) but is really talking to Vernon Dent, the man who plays her father. In one of the most hilarious things I’ve ever seen Shemp do, he makes a couple of jokes to "McIntyre" about her father and, while hysterically laughing, gives her a punch-line punch, as if she is one of the guys. Hilarious.

One of the Stooges’ very best shorts. Their roles as troubadours affords them ample opportunity to show off their singing and dancing talents. They serenade Princess Elaine on Cedric the Blacksmith’s behalf with their immortal rendition of "Oh Elaine," sung to the tune of the Sextet from Lucia. Later on they do some soft-shoe in knights’ armor while "Swannee River" plays on a medieval radio. In the beginning of the short, they receive a classic triple-slap in the face for singing "Oh…we…stuck our little tootsies in the water… ." There are plenty of gags, right up to the end when Shemp gets a face full of mashed fruit, "Well, fruit salad, what do you know?" Great performances from all three!

Under the helm of such a wonderful director like Edward Bernds, "Squareheads of the Round Table" is undoubtedly one of the best Three Stooges shorts featuring Shemp Howard as the third Stooge. Set in medieval times, the boys are troubadours who help the struggling blacksmith Cedric (Jock Mahoney) win the good graces of the very stern King Arthur (Vernon Dent) in order to marry the king's daughter Elaine (Christine McIntyre), who has been pledged by her father to the Black Prince (Philip Van Zandt).Highlights from "Squareheads" include the following. The Stooges' act of serenading Princess Elaine (to the tune of the famous Sextet from Donizetti's opera "Lucia di Lammermoor") is the best scene in the whole short; it is equally appealing to hear the princess herself join in on this tune with her own fine singing voice. Two guards (Robert Stevens and Joe Palma) chase the Stooges around the castle corridors. And the Stooges perform a hilarious danc…
