Here's a video I uploaded from El's stint over at Columbia Pictures making 2-reel comedy shorts. "Pick A Peck of Plumbers" (1944) was the only short El would make with Shemp Howard of Three Stooges fame. This Jules White directed short exhibits the same knock-about style being employed by other comedians on the lot at the time which included The Three Stooges, Harry Langdon, Hugh Herbert, Billy Gilbert, Andy Clyde, among others. As Columbia did for many of their 2 reelers, this is a remake of the 1934 short "Plumbing For Gold" starring George Sidney and Charlie Murray.
