Movie Info

This comedy is set in 1912 and follows the exploits of the funny duo as they purchase the Edison Movie Studio from a con artist. It doesn't take the two long to figure out that they were hoodwinked, and so they follow the grifter to Tinseltown. There they get jobs as stuntmen. Eventually they discover that the crook is posing as Sergei Trumanoff, a director of actioners. They manage to catch him stealing the studio payroll and a merry chase to the airport ensues.

Audience Reviews for Abbott and Costello Meet the Keystone Kops

One of the Duo's best works pits them against a group of con artists and their hilarious misadventures while heading to California to catch them. A funny and very amusing film that may not have as much gags and routines as thier other films but once you are on for the ride it is a real treat.

This is probably my least favorite Abbott and Costello movie out of their series that I've seen thus far.

Another disappointment that appears to have been put together based on the popularity of both franchises. The Keystone Cops franchise was revived from their silent films for this. The best part was the end chase, but still not up to par with their better films.
