Very funny Abbott & Costello comedy that has the boys crossing a bookie (Joseph Calleia) and trying to find a way to pay him back $50,000 of his money they lost. Nicely paced with one great routine after another. I don’t think there were any clunkers here. Sometimes the boys used bits that felt stale like they were dusted off vaudeville routines from twenty years before, but not here. Even the reworked gags feel fresh. Bud and Lou are in top form in this one. They had me in stitches. Great support from Calleia, Leon Errol, Mike Mazurki, and Alvin Hammer as a racetrack tout in one of the more subtly funny scenes. It’s one of my favorite A&C comedies that didn’t have monsters or the supernatural as part of the plot.
Not only had I never seen this, I’d never heard of it!
It’s 2016. I’m nearly 60. I’ve a LOT of comedies (and so-called “comedies”) and this is one of the cleverest flicks.
A&C are a favorite and this has some of their best patter, great physical comedy, and subtle double entendres.
Leon Errol is a fine addition to the team as the not-so-menacing über villain who never loses. Cathy Downs is the fetching eye candy who gets caught up in the boy’s shenanigans and makes the team a trio. And the older I get, the more I marvel at Bud Abbott’s amazing straight man.
Usually when a movie has 7 writers, you’re looking at a bomb. Not here. Charles Barton had helmed some other A&C films in the past but this could be his best. And kudos to Walter Schumann’s perfect score.
