Audience Reviews for Abbott and Costello in the Foreign Legion
Great Abbott and Costello film, though it may not be as perfect as some of their other films it's still pretty good and very funny.
In this film Bud and Lou get there first taste in being outside the US, Its comical to see what wasn't political correct in these days. The are on a quest to find a wrestler who broke his contract and left New York for his home tribe in Algiers. Comedy is there but again not like some of there other films. 3 stars
I didn't enjoy this one as much as their cross-genre films which mix in horror elements. The pair are in Algeria looking for a famed wrestler when they are mistaken for spies by some Arabs. They are chased into the Legion's headquarters and are soon signed up for duty. They unwittingly unravel a traitor's plot, a sargent who has been working with the Arabs to hamper the development of a rail line though the country. Not surprisingly there was a lot of anti-Arab sentiment even this long ago coming from Hollywood.
