An intended film for Bud Abbott and Lou Costello that ened up with Hugh O'Brian (a performer who was often funny, but not on purpose) and Buddy Hackett in the A&C roles, with most of the footage given over to Spike Jones and His City Slickers, with all hands members of a 1910 fire company about to be mechanized. A&C visible in some long shots. Written by

I've spent years looking for a copy of this film(16mm,dvd,vhs), so I could show it to my kids. The movie is funny, and Spike and the members of his band show why they were the best musicians in the business. They had to be that good to play that demented. I like it and recommend it for movie lovers of all ages.
The movie is about a turn of the century firehouse, with a crew of misfits that are firemen and the department band (when not fighting the fires). There's the usual running gags, plus the mayhem of Spike Jones and his Orchestra. Also, comedy relief provided by comedian Buddy Hackett and straight-man Hugh O'Brien.
