"Swing Parade of 1946" is musical comedy film. In it the Three Stooges help an aspiring singer, Carol Lawrence (Gale Storm), and a nightclub owner, Danny Warren (Phil Regan), find love. It features dizzy dishwashers Moe, Larry, and Curly, and musical numbers by Connee Boswell and the Louis Jordan and Will Osborne orchestras, including "Stormy Weather" and "Caldonia."

Curly's illness

"Swing Parade of 1946" was filmed near the end of Curly Howard's career. The 42-year-old comedian had suffered a series of minor strokes several months prior to filming, and his performances had been unpredictable. By the time of "Swing Parade of 1946", he had lost a considerable amount of weight, and lines had creased his baby face. As a result, he could no longer ad-lib for the camera as in previous instances. His scene where he recreates the maze of pipes from 1940's "A Plumbing We Will Go" is sluggish and lethargic.
