Rated NR · 83 minutes · 1948

As burlesque and later radio comics, Abbott and Costello found their metier in bizarre patter routines; they never got the hang of the kiddie slapstick Universal assigned to them, and their physical comedy is low, heavy, and graceless. This 1948 effort is probably the last of their watchable films, though it's a long way from their best. Critics used to complain that their films weren't plotted; these days, they look like Dickens. Charles Barton directed; with Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney Jr., and Glenn Strange.
