Cat Out of the Bag Alert!  This review contains some spoilers for this film!

Synopsis: Moe, Larry and Shemp are all getting engaged to their dream girl on the same day. What they don’t know is it’s the same girl and she’s only after them for their rings.

Kitty Cameo: When we first see the girl (Connie Cezon) she is sitting on a couch in her apartment petting a long-haired tabby cat on her lap. When someone knocks at the door, she sets the cat aside to answer it.

Later when Shemp enters the apartment he gives the girl a framed picture of himself. She sneers at it and sets it on a table. The cat looks up and sees the picture, then arches its back and growls (the growls are dubbed in).

This same footage of the cat was used in a later reworking of the same short with Joe Besser entitled Rusty Romeos.
