This collection brings together 3 classic films that are guaranteed to leave audiences of all ages laughing out loud!
IN THE NAVY
In this rollicking musical comedy, Abbott and Costello are two sailors bound for duty on the high seas. They befriend singing star Dick Powell, who has ditched the limelight for a quiet enlisted life and must help him evade an ambitious reporter (Claire Dodd) intent on using his new identity for her big story. To complicate matters further, Pomeroy (Costello) has fallen for Patty, one of The Andrew Sisters, and puts on a charade to impress her. The action starts with a dance hall brawl and ends with Pomeroy playing captain of the battleship. Hilarious high jinks are punctuated by fabulous musical numbers in this classic entertainment treasure!
BUCK PRIVATES COME HOME
Bud and Lou return to civilian life in this hysterical slapstick adventure. Slicker Smith (Abbott) and Herbie Brown (Costello) are caught with a young stowaway, Evy (Beverly Simmons), on board their returning ship by Sgt. Collins (Nat Pendleton). Evading arrest and deciding they need to find someone to adopt Evy, the threesome go in search of Evey's "Aunt" Sylvia (Joan Fulton). Sylvia's fiance is a car racer trying to win an upcoming race, if he can only get his car out, and end up leading the police on a mad-cap cross-country race that's become one of the most infamous in film history.
THE NAUGHTY NINETIES
Comedy legends Bud Abbott and Lou Costello take to the river in a riotous ride up stream in The Naughty Nineties. In the 1890s, card sharps take over an embattled Mississippi riverboat with the intention to transform it into a floating gambling house. Stage show actor Dexter Broadhurst (Abbott) and his bumbling sidekick Sebastian Dinwiddle (Costello) set out to help the captain regain ownership of the vessel. Featuring the famous “who’s on first” comedy routine, The Naughty Nineties is a classic trip back in time to a fun-filled era of whacky skits and keen comic timing, guaranteed to keep you laughing all the way to the very end.
