This is not, as has been often stated, Lou Costello's only film without Bud Abbott. Costello traveled to Hollywood in the late 1920s, before he teamed up with Abbott, and appeared as a stuntman and extra in several films. See more »

I like this movie for so many reasons.For one,the very attractive Dorothy Provine has much more to do in this movie than Allison Hayes had to do in hers,and she behaves better than Joy Harmon did in hers.Second,it proves that Lou Costello can act without Bud.The only things I didn't like was the time travel sequence and the shot in the air part;they just don't belong in this film.I really like the part where Provine gets a shower and says she's growing again.All I can say is "Grow,baby,grow!" This odd little film also stars the familiar faces of Charles Lane,Gale Gordon and no Bud Abbott.
