"Rockin' thru the Rockies" is the 45th short subject starring American slapstick comedy team the Three Stooges. The trio made a total of 190 shorts for Columbia Pictures between 1934 and 1959.


The Stooges are guides (circa late 1800s), who are helping a trio christened "Nell's Belles" travel across the the Rocky Mountains to San Francisco, the location of their next performance. While preparing some corned beef, a group of Indians urge them to get off their land as soon as possible. Since Curly scared off the horses earlier, the group are stuck there for the night. Unfortunately, snow falls while they asleep. They awake to discover a bear has devoured their food supply, so the three hapless guides try unsuccessfully to catch some fish in a nearby frozen lake. The fishing expedition is interrupted by Nell (Kathryn Sheldon), who discovers the Belles — Lorna Gray, Dorothy Appleby and Linda Winters — have been kidnapped by the Indians. The Belles manage to escape, and the troupe leaves the Indians' land quickly.


The title of this film is often mistaken for the Stooges' 1945 starring feature film "Rockin' in the Rockies".cite book
