4.0 out of 5 stars Trains, Busses and Automobiles and Bud and Lou May 16, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Just about all of the ingredients that made the first half of the 20th century a renaissance of great entertainment is here in one movie. This is not necessarily a great film, but very good and historically interesting. There is a rock and roll attempt in this 1942 comedy/musical. The song is called "Rockin' and Reelin' (Rockin' Around the Square.)" It has most of the ingredients necessary for rock and roll. A mixture of all the cultures and musical styles and rhythms, but the music form wouldn't be fully realized for another 10 or 12 years. Ella Fitzgerald does well in her first film appearance but her time had not quite happened yet. Abbott and Costello are in fine form especially in a chase scene that makes me woder how did they train that pigeon to do his trick? Dick Foran is the good guy. Johnny Mack Brown is the other good guy. Dick Foran did a lot of varied film roles including starring in "The Mummy's Hand." Abbott and Costello, of course, have a movie called "Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein." The pair also did some fun things in other films such as "The Wistful Widow of Wagon Gap." This western ,"Ride 'Em Cowboy" is a western with boogie and swing and light opera music. It also has some nice dancing. Trains chasing cars, bears driving cars, stunt guys jumping out of windows and a pretty girl who is tough and likeable. Tom Willett

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF ABBOTT & COSTELLO'S BEST FILMS September 6, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
A TERRIFIC mix of songs, a western film, and comedy. Abbott & Costello play rodeo peanut venders who get mixed up with Indians and cowboys. 5 STARS again for this HILARIOUS, UPROARIOUS comedy and to Abbott & Costello.
