Goofs

When Lum & Abner arrive at Gold City to check out their railroad, there's a shot of a dilapidated shack with a dangling sign. This shot is flipped; the letters are backwards. A minute later, they actually walk in front of the shack; now the sign leans in the opposite direction and the letters are in the right order. See more »

This is a good classic movie!
6 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the first one of the Lum and Abner movies i have ever seen. I have heard a few audio tapes of the old radio show over the last 6 years and I have to say that from the time this movie started playing on my DVD player until the end of it I was laughing so much I feel this live movie is even more funny than the old radio show. It is so wild what old Abner has to get into after he and Lum are fooled into thinking that he has only two weeks to live. It is also so funny at the end when Lum is put in that rocket ship and crashes near that sign in Iowa thinking that he is just nine miles from the Planet Mars when the sign says "9 Miles to Mars Iowa" and it is such a funny movie with what those two get into! I would recommend anyone who likes comedies to watch this movie!
