Abbott & Costello play Al Stewart & Wilbert Smith, who are a theatrical agent and his new discovery, Wilbert the escape artist, who proves to be a bust, but another discovery, a singer named Dorothy McCoy(played by Dorothy Shay) is more successful, though discovers that Wilbert is a relation, so convinces him to go back with her to Kentucky to prove it. Al tags along, and they learn of a legendary gold mine that could make them all rich(if they can find it). Of course, there is a family feud with the neighboring Winfields, which endangers their lives, with romantic entanglements for all. Sorry excuse for a comedy has bad songs and cringe-worthy humor, though the sequence with Margaret Hamilton as a witch matching voodoo doll skills with Wilbert is both amusing and scary,providing the film's only highlight, and saving it from total decay.
