Trivia

There is a shot of a restaurant called the "Windsor House Band Box". This is an inside joke referring to The Windsor House, a restaurant owned by Lou Costello, and The Band Box, a nightclub owned by Bud Abbott. See more »

Goofs

When Grover places his $100 bet, he places it on Teabiscuit's entered number. However, the horse with that number didn't win, so the ticket is worthless. Never mind that Teabiscuit won the race; bets at the track are on numbers, not on names. See more »

Good Abbott and Costello
5 March 2000 | by (Essex, England) – See all my reviews

In this film, I think Costello wanted to add a bit more depth to his character. He is a taxi driver and Abbott is is pal. Costello inadvertently kills a horse and takes it upon himself to replace it. as Mr Warner, the bad tempered manager who keeps popping up in the film. The songs have been blasted but I rather like them.

There is real character to this film and a good atmosphere. There are many funny gags here and Eugene pallette is hilarious

I would of liked Erle C. Kenton to of directed more than just 3 Abbott and Costello movies. he directed some of 'Hit the Ice' too till he fell out with Lou and was replaced with Charles Lamont who said it would only be a one off!!! This is a very pleasing film for Abbott and Costello fans and the kids would love it too. They don't make em like this anymore!
