In the scene where Bud and Lou are ice fishing, an off-camera seal barks and Costello ad libs: "Somebody got a car up here, driving?" But the film is set in the 1890s, before the automotive era. See more »
Look Out Alaska! Because Here Come Abbott And Costello!
I had heard about this Abbott and Costello movie, I had heard that it was a really funny one, and because of that, I decided that I saw going to see it. So one day I bought the Best of Abbott and Costello Volume Three and got down to watching this movie. And I thought that this movie was really hysterical and laugh-filled! This movie in my opinion is one of Abbott and Costello's best of their movies that they made in the 1950's, I thought that it was really filled with laughs! Look out Alaska, because here come Abbott and Costello! I have seen a lot of movies made by the Perfect Straight-Man and the Perfect Buffoon, and I have liked all of them, Abbott and Costello are the greatest of them all! I hope that Alaska was able to brace itself, because Abbott and Costello were one their way up north!
Lost in Alaska is one really funny Abbott and Costello movie that is going to cause you to split your sides! I really loved the scene where Abbott and Costello were taking turns to shift and sleep while watching Nugget Joe McDermott, while Abbott would sleep a full two hours, Costello would sleep only a few seconds while Abbott would set the clock forward two hours! And also, another scene that I really liked in the movie was the scene at the end where Costello was in the water and Abbott thought that he was taking a bath! So all in all, this is another very hysterical Abbott and Costello movie!
This is one of Abbott and Costello's best movies of the 1950's, and you should see it, because you are really going to be laughing and laughing! This Abbott and Costello movie is going to rekindle your flame for watching comedy! The kings of comedy are in top form for this movie of 1952, in fact, they are in top form in every film that they made!
