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 »

I've always been a fan of Abbott and Costello. The first time I saw this movie it became my instant favorite. Why? Lots of reasons ... The plot is fun, its put together well, it flows, it has the type of humor you'd expect from this duo, the sets work, the sound is good, the continuity is OK, but most importantly ... The REAL reason its my favorite Abbott and Costello flick ... TA DA! The CAST! Aside from Bud and Lou: Clyde Beatty! Geeze, a childhood hero of mine! Frank Buck! OMG, another one! Brothers Max and Buddy Baer, two of my favorites in whatever they did. Wait a minute, is that? YES! Shemp Howard! Wait yet again! Joe Besser? Yes again! Two of the six Three Stooges! And behind the camera, over there and off to the side, never seen but heard by extension, its Norman Abbott. Bud's Nephew and the dialog director for this flick. Norman Abbott is worth a little study of his own, having had one heck of a career! ALL of this, and its funny too!
