Trivia

This is not, as has been often stated, Lou Costello's only film without Bud Abbott. Costello traveled to Hollywood in the late 1920s, before he teamed up with Abbott, and appeared as a stuntman and extra in several films. See more »

Goofs

When Pinsetter runs out of the surplus store carrying supplies for Emmy Lou's dress, he trips on a jerry can that is on display on the sidewalk just outside the store. However it is obvious that Lou Costello purposely sticks out his right leg as he runs by the can in order to knock the can over while feigning to trip over it. See more »

HEY ABBOTT!!!
28 December 2001 | by george.schmidtSee all my reviews

THE 30 FOOT BRIDE OF CANDY ROCK (1959) ** Lou Costello, Dorothy Provine, Gale Gordon. Costello's only film without partner Bud Abbott and sadly his final one (he died before the film was released) casts him in this fantasy comedy as hapless rubbish collector and amateur inventor Artie Pinsetter (great name), in love with the lovely niece of disgruntled politico Gordon, who unwittingly turns her into a giantess (!) Oh the possibilities... but the film falters with some cheap special effects and lame plot, but Provine is a sight in a parachute-inspired tunic! Va-va-va-VOOM! HEY ABBOTT!! Begging for a remake, say with Jason Alexander and Gina Gershon/Famke Janssen/Sela Ward or Selma Blair? Or for the Gen.Y say Britney Spears and Seth Green? Hey Now!! Just a thought.
