      Steve D middle of the pack but fun. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Corny but likable Abbott and Costello comedy about the duo working at a dude ranch and discovering a Nazi plot (this was filmed during WWII after all). Most of the the comedy is their usual Who's-On-First-like word play and like a lot of Marx Brothers and other comedy pictures of the time, this one features several musical numbers. You also have Tom Conway and Kathryn Grayson, so there's a solid supporting cast, for this otherwise forgettable but entertaining enough of Abbott and Costello picture. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Abbott & Costello take over the Wheeler & Woolsey roles in their first MGM film; songs are provided by Kathryn Grayson and John Carroll. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member in name only remake of an RKO 1929 musical Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member The problem with this is the musical interludes. Not needed frankly. But Abbott and Costello are on top top form in this early entry. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Weaker than usual side story but some great gags.
