The play opened in New York City, New York, USA on 28 January 1944 and ran for 481 performances, closing 17 May 1945. The stars were June Havoc and Bobby Clark, and included Luba Malina, who is also in this movie. Because Bud Abbott and Lou Costello fans expressed annoyance about so many musical numbers in their films, none of Cole Porter's music was used in this picture. See more »
After the bull sends the barrel (with Lou inside) flying into the center of the bullring and it crashes, you can momentarily see the wires attached to the barrel. See more »
As you people who have read my comments on other movies, I am an ENORMOUS Abbott and Costello fan! This movie is perhaps one of their best of the late 1940's years, alongside Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein and Abbott and Costello Meet the Killer, Boris Karloff.
Now why did I give this movie ten stars out of ten? Because it's just FUNNY, that's why. For example, the opening was very funny and the scene were Costello became the "goodwill ambassador" is brilliant! This is another one of my all time Abbott and Costello favorites of their later years, and I believe that this is another pretty underrated Abbott and Costello film.
