Lou Costello drives through the back wall of a movie theater bearing a poster for a fictional film, "Abbott and Costello in 'Romeo Junior'". Footage of Costello, Bud Abbott and Betty Alexander in Shakespearean costumes was shot to be shown on the theater screen but was not used. See more »
Underrated A&C and a little more heart than usual.
Not sure why others who have commented on this film seem so lukewarm about it. I think this is a really underrated Abbott and Costello comedy and the script (contrary to what others have said) is actually quite good. It is more subtle than some of their earlier films and actually has a lot of pathos in addition to the comedy. It also has an amazing chase sequence for a finale.
Also-- this film does not contain the Susquehanna Hat sequence or the chase footage from "Never Give A Sucker An Even Break" (as is stated in two previous comments). The film they are confusing this with is another Abbott and Costello movie, "In Society."
