Abbott and Costello Go to Mars

Abbott and Costello were never known for their quality control, but once the comedy duo launched their successful TV series in 1952, their theatrical features really hit the skids. This 1953 release finds them boarding a rocket ship, landing in New Orleans during Mardi Gras, and mistaking it for the red planet. Charles Lamont directed.
