Trivia

In the train car on the way to the dude ranch, Willoughby (Lou Costello) sees Duke (Bud Abbott) and several cowboys getting ready to play cards. He says, "What are you playing?" and Duke replies, "Poker". Willoughby says, "I've never played that game before. Is it like dice?" That's an inside joke, referring to Abbott & Costello's famous "dice" routine, which they used in their first starring film, Buck Privates (1941). See more »

Big Laughs! This is a funny movie!
16 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is Bud Abbott and Lou Costello's sixth film, and it is quite a huge riot! This is a movie that will leave you laughing away!

Poor ol' Lou Costello once again gets into a lot of trouble in this side-splitting movie, but everything turns out well for him, as always!

In this movie, Abbott and Costello are going out west. Boy, they went everywhere! they were in the army, navy, air force, Foreign Legion, met the Invisible Man, Frankenstein's monster, the Wolf Man, Dracula, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, the Mummy, and they went to outer space!

This is another of the funniest movies the Abbott and Costello ever made, those who have not seen this movie must, you will just laugh, and laugh, and laugh!

I own this as part of the DVD collection: The Best of Abbott and Costello, Vol. 1, so I can watch it anytime I like.

10/10
