Production began on November 23, 1942, just two and a half weeks after the birth of Costello's only son, the ill-fated Lou "Butch" Costello Jr, giving unintended poignancy to the scene in which, after a mix-up in the hospital, Costello is told that he just gave birth to a baby boy. See more »

Fun Abbott & Costello movie! In this one, they play photographs who get tangled in a bank robbery. Funny scenes like the one where Costello is packing and unpacking. Or the one where they're skiing down the hill. Or even the one on the ice rink. Look also for a small bit by Mantan Moreland. That guy is so funny!
On the negative side, there's a bit too much singing in this one. Why turned this into a half-musical when the jokes and pirouettes of our two guys are enough?
Out of 100, I gave it 79. That's good for *** on a **** stars rating system.
Seen at home, in Welland, on December 6th, 2001.
