Bud Abbott and Lou Costello were engaged in an acrimonious contract dispute with Universal Pictures during the making of this film. As a result, they refused to do re-shoots and every day, at exactly 4:00 p.m., whether they were in the middle of a scene or in the middle of a line, they would cease working and go home. See more »

Hobnobbing with Bud & Lou - classic A & C slobs vs. snobs
IN SOCIETY (1944)*** One of Abbott and Costello's finest and funniest comedies with the boys as bumbling plumbers hobnobbing with the hoi palloi with some amusing moments in one of the first snob/slob comedies. Best bit: "Bagel Street" bit with poor Lou being abused while trying to run an errand for a friend.
