Editorial Reviews

Russ Raymond, America's number one crooner, disappears and joins the Navy under the name Tommy Halstead. Dorothy Roberts, a magazine journalist, is intent on finding out what happened to Russ and she tries everything she can to get a picture of him to prove he's Russ Raymond. Tommy's friends, Pomeroy Watson and Smokey Adams,help him while Pomeroy writes love letters to Patty Andrews. But because Smokey makes Pomeroy lie about himself in the letters, and when Patty comes to the Navy base, she's furious at Pomeroy. When Pomeroy, Smokey, Tommy and the Andrews sisters set sail for Hawaii, Pomeroy discovers there's a tomato in the potato locker, and she's been snapping shots of Tommy the whole trip. Whether Pomeroy's proving that 7 x 13 = 28 - three different ways, having Smokey help him play ship captain for Patty, or falling out of his hammock, it's an Abbott and Costello classic

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE TEAMS BEST August 10, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
Russ Raymond (Dick Powell) is a hearthrob singer frustrated with his life in the spot light. To obtain a life of normalcy, he disappears and joins the Navy under his real name of Tommy Halstead. Dorothy Roberts (Claire Dodd) is a newspaper reporter trying to boost her career by finding the missing Russ Raymond. While in the Navy, Tommy becomes friends with Smokey Adams and Pomeroy Watson (Abbott & Costello). Smokey and Pomeroy help Tommy keep his hidden identity, while Pomeroy follows his infatuation with Patty Andrews (herself) of the Andrews Sisters. But because Smokey makes Pomeroy lie about himself in the letters, and when Patty comes to the Navy base, she's furious at Pomeroy. When Pomeroy, Smokey, Tommy, and the Andrews Sisters set sail for Hawaii, Pomeroy discovers there's a tomato (Dorothy) in the potato locker, and she's been snapping shots of Tommy the whole trip.

Whether Pomeroy's proving that 7 x 13 = 28 - three different ways, having Smokey help him play ship captain for Patty, or falling out of his hammock, this an Abbott and Costello classic.

ROUTINES & HILARIOUS MOMENTS

Lemon Bit

Money Counting Bit

Sons of Neptune

Hull of a ship

7 x 13 = 28

Lou drilling sailors in boat.

Trivia: When the picture was sent to the U.S. Navy for approval, the Navy refused to have its name associated with it because of the sequence at the end when Costello takes over a ship and does some decidedly un-military manoeuvers with it. The producers came up with the idea of having Costello accidentally taking a sleeping potion and dreaming the entire sequence. When this scene was shot and edited in, the Navy lent its backing to the picture.

5.0 out of 5 stars BUD AND LOU MAKE YOU SEASICK WITH LAUGHTER September 1, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The boys are sailors in the US Navy. Dick Powell plays a popular singing sensation who, in order to escape his fans, enlists in the Navy under his real name. A & C have many HILARIOUS highlights one which shows Lou proving to Bud that 7 x 13=28. And one which shows Lou having a nightmare (after having accindentaly taking a sleeping potion) in which he is the ship's captain and NEARLY DESTROYS it in a series of HILARIOUS manouers. The film also teams the boys with SHEMP HOWARD (of THE THREE STOOGES) who upstages them in every scene. Howard also appeared with the team in "BUCK PRIVATES" and "IT AIN'T HAY" with the same results.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Abbott and Costello movie June 12, 2004
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
This has always been my favorite A & C movie. The routines the two have are hilarious, the Andrew Sisters are wonderful, and I absolutely love the main song "Where in the Navy, Watch Dogs of Liberty!". Makes me want to go back to the recruiting office and rejoin!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the funniest family type movies around June 6, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Bud Abbott and Lou Costello are at their zaniest in this Naval Splash of a comedy. Enjoy the `water gag'. It will keep you in stitches, Abbott & Costello certainly were.
