Vegas Trip For Goodhearted ones
13 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode plays very well & hits on all cylinders pretty much. Abbott & Costello are in good form. Speaking of good form, Hillary Brooke is much in evidence here & this episode reminds you just how attractive this woman is. Sid Fields is good here running a used car lot that is much like a prison when they slam the gates on customers Bud & Lou when they enter the car lot.

The driver license bureau sequence & car lot sequence are both funny. The Las Vegas sequence is good too including the classic mudder-fodder routine. The Vegas routine borrows quit literally from their movie "The Noose Hangs High" including the character of Julius Ceasar though there are enough differences that the show is not the same as the movie.

This is all solid material including a few physical routines by the always physical Costello.
