Title: Movie scene in Fin House - Abbot and Costello?
Post by: JJWX on October 14, 2017, 07:13:20 AM
I remember seeing a portion of a movie as a kid, I think it was Abbot and Costello.  A few scenes involved a Fun House of sorts, I rememebr they entered a room by going down a slide.  Any ideas?  I would think this would be easy for an A&C fan.

Well, I think that'd be me, as I believe I have seen all the films A&C made together, and the film you may be thinking of is 1956's Dance With Me, Henry, the last film in which both A&C appeared, as it takes place in a theme park owned by A&C called Kiddieland. A warning, while I enjoyed it, it is regarded as one of the weakest entries in the A&C series.

Actually no (hence the question mark after Abbott and Costello).  Similar era though, and a zany comedy like theirs.

Returning back to Abbot and Costello.

Most of their films are only for fans of Abbott and Costello. Though, here are 4 of their films that (IMHO) are worth watching, even if one is not a fan of Abbott and Costello.

Buck Privates
Hold that Ghost
The Time of their Lives
Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein

I would also add to these four, Abbott and Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. While not as "good" as the previous four, it has always had a place in my heart.

1st It was the 1st Abbott and Costello film I ever saw.
2nd It has the great Boris Karloff as the villain.
3rd It has (IMHO) one of the great comedic chase scenes at the end of the film. And . . .
4th For someone who's humor is absurd, there is a classic example in the film, when Costello gets turned into a giant mouse, scaring both man and mice across London, while Abbott remains oblivious to what is going on.
