| A&C comedy is a bit sloppy but still good fun...
Abbott and Costello get tricked into joining the Foreign Legion; all they want is to get a brawny wrestler out of Algeria. Some good, hearty laughs in this A&C feature--their 26th film--which has surprisingly good production values, but feels a little rushed and has sloppy overdubbing. The wrestlers (William 'Wee Willie' Davis and Ed Wood's favorite actor Tor Johnson) are an added treat, and Costello as usual steals all his scenes. True, by this time the comedy duo were just relying on their proved shtick, but the movie is fast-paced and is much funnier and more tolerable than the Lewis and Martin pictures from this era. **1/2 from ****
