Editorial Reviews

Bud Abbott and Lou Costello deliver their "usual high quota of laughs" (The Hollywood Reporter) in this hysterically funny slapstick farce that boasts some of their most beloved comedy bits, such as the immortal "Mudder and Fodder" routine! Window washers Ted Higgins and Homer Hinchcliffe (Abbott & Costello) are mistaken for messengers and sent to collect $50,000 by a gangster who runs a gambling syndicate. But Homer inadvertently mails the cash to a woman (Cathy Downs) who spends it before they can track her down. Faced with a thirty-six hour deadline to come up with the gangster's dough, the desperate trio must act quickly or it'll be their necks!

I was quite pleased with this A & C comedy. Made by Eagle Lion Films (which went belly-up years ago) but now distributed under the MGM banner, it's one of the handful of movies done outside their home studio of Universal.

I am happy to say that the boys are in top form here. As usual, Bud & Lou do variations on old routines, but the selection is hilarious: The "Mudder & Fodder" bit, the "Mustard" bit, and the "Dress/Undress" bits are performed with panache by sharp-tongued Bud and bewildered, baby-faced Lou. This all rests on the plot foundation of mistaken identity as the boys accidentally mis-deliver a large sum of money which gets them in deep trouble with a gangster (hence the title). And so, it's a race against time as the boys try to beat a 36-hour deadline to recover the dough, with mishaps aplenty.

Perhaps not THE boys' best film, but it's slick & funny enough to keep you laughing all the way through.

This film is a real quality production and one of Bud and Lou's best. Although it was an Eagle-Lion film (a studio of some good quality films, and which folded in the 1950s I believe), it has a polished look that could easily fool someone into thinking it was a Universal release. I highly recommend it.

This was a solid A&C film, the plot dealing with $50,000 stolen by some bad guys. A post-WWII comedy, when the nation was in the mood for light-hearted, non-heavy entertainment.

"THE NOOSE HANGS HIGH",MAY NOT BE ABBOTT & COSTELLO'S BEST WORK,BUT IT IS

FAR FROM BEING THEIR WORST.IT KIND OF REMINDED ME OF LAUREL & HARDY'S FILM

"OUR RELATIONS".IT HAD A LOT OF COMICAL MISHAPS,CONFUSION AND MIXUPS THAT

KEEP THIS MOVIE MOVING AT A STEADY BUT FRANTIC PACE.THE ONLY MISSING IN-

GREDIANT IN MY OPION IS THAT BUD & LOU DON'T HAVE A SET OF TWINS TOO HELP

RELIEVE SOME OF THE TROUBLES THAT FALL ON THEM.HILARIOUS IS THE "MUDDER AND FODDER"ROUTINE PERFORMED BY LEON ERROL AND LOU COSTELLO, IT IS A-

PRICELESS MOMENT.NOT TO SAY THAT THIS PICTURE AS A WHOLE ISN'T WITHOUT

SOME MINOR FLAWS.THE FILM DOESN'T HIDE IT'S STUDIO MAKING SUROUNDINGS,IT

ALMOST COMES ACROSS AS AN EARLY TELEVISION SITCOM,WHERE IT IS OBVIOUS THAT

THE ACTORS ARE PERFORMING ON A STAGESET.

A&C The Noose Hangs High, 1948 film

Lou has a toothache and tries self-medication. [Remember when an airplane in the sky was a rare sight?] When this fails he goes to a dentist. "I want a tooth pulled without anesthesia." "What a brave man!" It's the other guy. There is a comic scene in the dentist's chair. Can a chair go that high? There is a psychiatrist's office on the floor above the dentist. [The outdoor scenes with tall buildings says mid-town Manhattan.] Their next job is to collect a large sum of money for Mr. Craig from Mr. Stewart. But Stewart plans a double-cross after they leave the office! [$50,000 was a huge sum in those days.] There is a mistake in filling an envelope! [Remember those mailing chutes in office buildings?] McBride wants his money. "Talk fast!" "Don't get funny." [That's the point of this movie.] They must spend the night as hostages.

There is a skit on indecision. "But on the other hand ...." "Something is terribly wrong here." [A better writer?] Their options are discussed. Bud has a trick to play. Lou does the same trick. The next morning the envelope arrives. "There must be some mistake." If the money isn't delivered McBride will call the District Attorney! Did Lou make a mistake? "Open for the thrill of a lifetime." It is. Carol Blair the maid gets a surprise. Bud and Lou are sent to retrieve that letter - in 36 hours. Can they get that mailing list? [No automation in those days.] Bud splits the list so they can contact the addressees. One pays off. "I don't believe you." [The prices add up, a spending splurge.] Can they wait another day? No, says Craig. McBride makes another bet, a long shot at 30 to 1. Carol has a plan to regain the lost money. [Do you see the flaw in this plan? Mistaken identity?

I laughed so hard just watching my younger brother laugh it was great. This was the scene where Abbott kept telling Costello to put on his pants to an immediate take them off. This went on for several minutes. Great team humor. It does not exist any more. One of the boys better films.

This was one of the few Abbott and Costello films I had never seen,the reason being that this was an independant that was unavaiable for a good many years.
The film was released in 1949,after there triumph in there best film,Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein(1948).
It's not one of there best,but is a pleasant enough film in the team's time of decline.

In the film,Abbott and Costello play two window washers who get mixed up with some gangsters after accidently mailing there money away in the hands of a beautiful woman.Now the boys must redeem the money and protect there own necks from the gangsters.

Very enjoyable with many great slapstick moments and a memorable comic performance by veteran comic,Leon Errol who has some great scenes with Costello.

Fans of the team will not want to pass this one up.
