Three Little Pigskins

The 1934 short Three Little Pigskins has the Three Stooges playing fake college football players who, by mistake, find themselves in a real professional game. You might recognize 22-year-old Lucille Ball in her first credited role. At 16:30, you'll see the only stunt that the Stooges ever refused to do themselves. They insisted that it was too dangerous. Instead, they used stunt doubles and four of them (two Stooge stand-ins and two actors playing photographers) were seriously injured.
