After Lou Costello was finally over his illness the guys made a film for MGM, Lost In A Harem, then they made their 10th film for Universal Pictures. In Society was their only film for 1944. It was written by John Grant, Edmund Hartmann and Hal Fimberg. It was directed by Jean Yarbrough, who'd go on to direct the next four of Abbott and Costello's pictures and all the episodes of their TV show. This film the guys are plumbers and they go on an emergency call to the mansion of a rich guy. He's just returned from a trip and wants to sleep. His wife is having a party on the main floor. That doesn't bother him but a leaky faucet in the bathroom next door does. The guys trash his bathroom, flood rooms, and generally ruin his night. Days later they get an invite to a society gala event. Of course it was a mistake, the rich man's wife sent her invite, instead of the complaint for their plumbing work, but they don't know that and go along to the party. There's some of the usual chaos that happens if you're near the guys. Marion Hutton plays their pal the cab driver. She has a bit of a romance with one of the society men at the costume party. He was dressed as a cabbie and he assumed that she was in costume too. Keep an eye out for Arthur Treacher, playing a butler. Once of the scenes in the film is the Susquehanna Hat skit. Lou has to deliver hats to the company. Every time he meets someone they have a grudge against the company, or the street it's on, and when they get mad, a hat dies. At the gala a painting is stolen and Bud and Lou are suspects. They go after the real thief to clear their name. I think that was the basic plot of the last film. They were on the run anyway. There's a big chase on a fire truck, part of which was taken from W.C. Fields' Never Give a Sucker an Even Break. I got a few laughs and set the disc aside to watch the next film in a bit.
