Lots of fun with the loony couple in the African jungle
The frantic duo now as library clerks ( Abbott and Costello ) who become involved in African adventures when an ambitious group ruled by a nasty , evil woman ( Hillary Brooke ) thinks Costello knows a treasure map . They go to a Africa safari which leads a secret treasure , the king Salomon's diamonds . Stranded in Africa happens numerous humorous adventures , odds and risks . The picture contains slapstick, simple humor, parody and is pretty amusing . This is an okay comedy but a cheapie production in low budget developing a sarcastic look to jungle films .
Most entertainment and madcap scheme comes from the animals apparition when are frightening to Costello as a gorilla , Croc and lions , especially when into a cage he believes being Abbott . Besides as supporting cast appears familiar faces joined in the mayhem , thus, Hillary Brooke ( acting alongside with the crazy duo in ¨Against the captain Kidd¨ too) as femme fatal, she is especially known as wicked roles (¨Woman in green¨ against Sherlock's Basil Rathbone ) ; Clyde Beatty and Frank Buck , they were actually lions tamers ; The Baer Brothers, Max and Buddy, real life muscle men heavyweight fighters and Buddy Baer ( playing the giant ) starred with the couple ¨Jack and the bean stalk¨; even appears the one time ¨Stooges¨ ( Howard and Besser ). This middling spoof film is regularly directed by usual director of their films, Charles Barton . The flick will appeal to nutty duo fans.Hilarious and humorous gags make this one of the best from barmy pair . Low-budget comedy could have been better .
