Abbott & Costello in the Foreign Legion

Overview

Package Description: "The Foreign Legion has had its share of soldiers who don't belong there, but it may never have had any who've upset its ranks as much as Abbott and Costello! The chaos begins in Brooklyn. Jonesy (Bud Abbott) and Max (Lou Costello) are wrestling promoters whose star fighter runs out on them. Following him to Algiers, they get more than they bargained for when they're tricked into joining the Foreign Legion.

Overview

Package Description: "The Foreign Legion has had its share of soldiers who don't belong there, but it may never have had any who've upset its ranks as much as Abbott and Costello! The chaos begins in Brooklyn. Jonesy (Bud Abbott) and Max (Lou Costello) are wrestling promoters whose star fighter runs out on them. Following him to Algiers, they get more than they bargained for when they're tricked into joining the Foreign Legion. A hot time follows as the comedians--still looking for their fighter--foul up basic training, dodge desert cutthroats and chase pretty slave girls. (At an auction, Max wonders if he can buy them at $1.25 down and $1.00 a month.) No opportunity for excitement is missed. There's a beautiful French spy (Patricia Medina), a traitorous legionnair (Walter Slezak), and plenty of local color, from Arabian horsemen to dancing girls. As for Abbott and Costello, both stock and new comedy situations make the most of their talents. Whether it's a mirage, or an oasis watched over by an alligator with false teeth, it's a setup for humor--which they deliver in their customary style. "
