Meet the Baron (1933) is a comedy film starring Jack Pearl, Jimmy Durante, Edna May Oliver, Zasu Pitts, Ted Healy and the Three Stooges. The title of the film refers to Pearl's character of Baron Munchhausen, which he made famous on his radio show.[1][2]


A couple of bungling idiots (Jimmy Durante and Jack Pearl) are abandoned in the deep jungles of Africa by Baron Munchausen. When a rescue team searching for the lost Baron stumble across the pair, they mistake Pearl for the missing Baron, and take the two of them back to America where they receive a hero's welcome.

The phony Baron is invited to speak at Cuddle College, run by Dean Primrose (Edna May Oliver). There he finds a love interest in Zasu Pitts, meets three crazy janitors (The Three Stooges), and faces exposure as a fraud. The Three Stooges were still working with Healy, shortly before they signed their contract with Columbia Pictures, and practically steal the show.
