Buddy, Save This Movie
21 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have never seen this film but have heard a lot about it. Just recently, I was reading an Abbott and Costello biography where it quoted Buddy Hackett as saying that he "replaced" Lou in the film when Lou got ill. (Was it another rheumatic fever attack?) I would like to know the origins of the casting and would like to see this film.

It is easy to see that Hugh O'Brian was essaying the Abbott role. But was he funny at one point?

Spike Jones in a movie that was tailored around him? Just zany enough to be a great idea! When Turner Classic Movies does show it at 3 in the morning I'll have the VCR set
