ALL Right
3 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent episode of the series. Sid Fields script is well developed around a couple of Abbott & Costello's great routines. The regular characters of season 1 are all here too.

Hillary Brooke's dad comes to town & threatens to take her back out to the farm to marry the boy she left behind whose still there waiting for her. Seems the boyfriend can sing & play piano. Sid Fields does double duty in this one as the landlord & a voice teacher teaching Costello to sing. Stinky is involved in this one too & there is just enough of him to make it worthwhile as one of the better short roles for Joe Besser.

The routines are some of Lou Costello's farm routine, the voice teaching sequence, & then the class "all right" routine where Lou is trying to prove to Hillary's dad that he can play the piano with Bud's help.

The piano routine is classic & this episode is one of the best ones.
