Plot

The Stooges are warehouse workers at the Superior Warehouse and Storage Company assigned to delivering some Arabian antique for client Mr. Bradley (Vernon Dent). While unpacking the goods at Mr. Bradley's house, Shemp stumbles upon a magic lamp that he, at first, dubs a "syrup pitcher." After giving the lamp a cleaning, a djinni appears (Wesley Bly), startling Shemp. Calling the djinni "genius," the Stooges are pursued by two Arabian thugs (Philip Van Zandt, Dick Curtis) who are after the magic lamp. Mr. Bradley is unaware of the magic lamp, which he gives to Shemp. only Shemp and Larry know about the magic of the lamp, in which Moe doubts. The thugs are apprehended, thanks to the genius, and at the end, the stooges are seen with their girls plus the million dollars that are now shared by the stooges. they all depart for a traveling vacation, leaving Mr. Bradley, who uses a mallet to repeatedly hit himself in the head, for giving the lamp to the stooges.
