Lou Costello drives through the back wall of a movie theater bearing a poster for a fictional film, "Abbott and Costello in 'Romeo Junior'". Footage of Costello, Bud Abbott and Betty Alexander in Shakespearean costumes was shot to be shown on the theater screen but was not used. See more »
This happens extremely rarely but yes, this sequel to the original "Buck Privates" is better. Why? There's more of A&C in this one actually as opposed to the original which has more musical numbers in it and more of a romance subplot. In "Buck Privates Come Home" there's more typical A&C burlesque routines that made them famous in the first place. I'm speaking primarily of the 'ol "Floogle Street Sketch" and the story about Floogle Street and the Susquehannah Hat Company. Either the street name or the name of the hat company sets everyone off whenever Lou mentions them to passing pedestrians. It is pure classic comedy, of which apparently writers forgot how to do nowadays. I highly recommend this flick!
