Hollywood Again.
28 October 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Abbott & Costello play Harry Pierce & Willie Piper, who buy a movie studio from a Mr. Gorman(played by Fred Clark). Turns out he was a con man, who has pulled this scam before. They track him cross country by train(and on foot) and end up in Hollywood at the studio, where they find him directing silent films under an alias. They then go to work as stunt men, which leads to lots of expected comedy mishaps, as they try to get even with Gorman. Weak comedy has a few funny bits but not many, and lacks any point, since the Keystone Kops are not as fondly remembered as Abbott & Costello. Their penultimate film at home studio Universal is sadly indicative of their decline.
