In an effort to see all the Abbott And Costello films I picked up Abbott And Costello In Hollywood. It's a 1945 picture, the 3rd of 3 films that the guys made, on loan, at MGM. Rio Rita and Lost In A Harem were the other two.
Nat Perrin and Martin A Gosch wrote the original story, Nat wrote the screenplay with Lou Breslow, and S Sylvan Simon is the director. Nat would later go on to produce all 64 episodes of The Addams Family. He'd even direct an episode. Nat also wrote 2 of the 3 Whistling movies with Red Skelton as The Fox. Oooooh!! Lou was another prolific writer, nothing too big, but plenty of titles. Sylvan directed a nice bunch of films, including all three of the Red Skelton Whistling pictures, Rio Rita, and The Fuller Brush Man.
Bud and Lou are a barber and a porter at a Hollywood Salon. They get called to Hollywood agent Norman Royce's office to give him a haircut and a shoeshine. While there they meet a young singer and convince him to let them be his agents. Now they have to get him a job. They've already pissed off the head of the studio so the thing to do is disguise themselves and sneak onto the studio lot. They cause some chaos and get the kid a job. The movie ends with the guys becoming successful agents.
There were some jokes and silly things. There's a nice cast in Frances Rafferty, Bob Haymes, Jean Porter, Lucille Ball, Preston Foster, Dean Stockwell, Rags Ragland, Mike Mazurki and the more I don't really know. Worth watching and a nice addition to the pile.
