The little "mini-car" shown in the final scenes isn't a movie prop car, as some have claimed. It's a Crosley, which was a real car produced by the Crosley Motor Co. from 1939-1942, discontinued during the war years, then resumed in 1946 until the company folded in 1952. See more »

Bud and Lou are up to their necks in the jungle where peril is rife at every turn. It's standard fare for the boys this one, though some strong scenes induce the laughter that the viewers are looking for. Plot is a sort of Tarzan Meets King Kong And King Solomon's Mines, with animals, cannibals and diamonds ago go. The usual rules apply, Lou is constantly under threat and offering up cowardly reactions, while Bud is calm and manages to avoid the tricky situations. As a formula it works to an extent, but as always with Abbott and Costello movies it's best not to watch too many in one sitting due to the repetitive nature of their material. Joining the lads for this one is Clyde Beatty, Frank Buck, Max Baer, Buddy Baer and Hillary Brooke. 6/10
