Abbott and Costello in Hollywood

So we move our way past Abandon Ship because it doesn't exist yet on Netflix, and.......CRAP.  Here's at least 10 Abbott and Costello movies in a row.  I didn't really think that I'd be hitting massive series' like this, but here we go.

Abbot and Costello in Hollywood-1945, starring Bud Abbot and Lou Costello, appearance by Lucille Ball

Maltin says-  Uneven comedy with A&C as barber and porter in Tinseltown.  A few peeks behind the scenes with Rags Ragland, Lucille Ball, Preston Foster, Butch Jenkins, and director Robert Z. Leonard. 

I say- Funny spots with out of place musical numbers makes this a really odd movie.  Some gags work well in a predictable way.  2 stars.
