Storyline

Abbott and Costello do several of their old burlesque routines with regulars Joe Kirk, Sidney Fields, and Bobby Barber including their famous ice cream cart and handkerchief routines, joke with screen great Charles Laughton, who reads "The Gettysburg address," host two musical acts, and shamelessly plug their new theatrical feature, "Jack and the Beanstalk."
