Lou Costello and Jonathan Harris
5 March 2015 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Blaze of Glory" is remembered as one of Lou Costello's last performances, not as dramatic as his later WAGON TRAIN, "The Tobias Jones Story," as it's accompanied by a laugh track. Lou plays plumber Neal Andrews, who receives an odd call for service at 11:00PM, alarming his wife (Lurene Tuttle), but because he's a trusting soul goes along to the hotel, only to learn that he has to recover some valuables lost down the drain for a gang of jewel thieves headed by smooth talking Favier (Jonathan Harris). Costello isn't bad, but he's slightly overshadowed by Harris, who looks and sounds no different than Dr. Smith. There's so much talk that little actually happens, leaving one with the impression that the wonderful Costello deserved better. He was able to do one final feature before his untimely death, "The 30-Foot Bride of Candy Rock," and that too failed to do him justice. Bud Abbott got his chance to do a GE THEATER in 1961, "The Joke's on Me," opposite Lee Marvin and Kathleen Hughes.
