It's fiesta time in Vista Del Rio, and that means much musical celebration. It's also a time of global war. So, in the updated plot of this exuberant World War II-era remake of the 1929 Wheeler and Woolsey romp, that means little Vista Del Rio is a jalapen?o hotbed of Axis spies. The agents intend to use a fiesta radio show to send a coded message, a scheme that may be scrambled silly when stumblebums Doc and Wishy stumble onto it. Bud Abbott and Lou Costello play the inept duo in this musical comedy that - from riffing on the word "pekinese" to Lou's hunger-fueled food mirage (tastes like chicken!) to his loopy spin within an oversized washing machine - has the famed funnymen fracturing any situation into goofy glee. Enjoy!

I was very pleased to be able to add this wonderful A&C classic to my collection. This is one that I had actually never seen before, so I was especially pleased to find it at such a excellent price. It was their 1st of only 3 pictures that they made for MGM and it has that MGM musical flare. Now all I need is "Dance With Me Henry" (their final film together) to complete my A&C Movie collection.
What I do love about this film is the sheer energy and fun of Abbott & Costello's early efforts. Most of the movies I see rerun on the classic film channels are the duo's later films and are pretty flat. In this one, they blow in like the life of the party and race through routines that makes you feel like they're trying to fit in as much as they can.
The slapstick is cartoonishly funny and the verbal bits are fun ("You're not here! You're not in Philadelphia, you're not in Baltimore, so you must be someplace and, if you're someplace else, then you're not here!").
I love this stuff and I'm glad I ordered the tape.
Great for Abbott & Costello fans.
PS I forgive Amazon. They do their best.
