Costello is a big-hearted soul who takes in every stray (human or animal) that comes along.He runs afoul of the authorities, who deem him an unsuitable father for the two orphans he hasadopted. Meanwhile, Abbott, the black sheep Costello has taken on, is an inveterate gambler whoowes the mob a huge sum. Cue the running around.
This was the last film the two comedians made together, and the humour is getting ratherhere. There is also something very odd about having C…stello as the authority figure, if only onmoral grounds — a complete reversal from what defined the duo.
The sound is the original mono. It is clean and clear, with very little, if any, backgroundstatic. My only quibble with it would be that it is a bit on the quiet side, but this is correctedeasily enough with the volume button.
The print is in excellent shape, with virtually no damage, and better yet, no grain to speak of,either. The image is sharp, and the black-and-white tones are superb. This may not be the bestAbbott and Costello movie out there, but it sure does look nice.
Nothing except the trailer. The menu is basic.
A weak effort, but worth releasing for historical reasons.
