Movie Info

When Abbott & Costello are remembered, almost invariably two scenes come to mind--the "Who's on First" sketch and the one found in this movie, where Lou is served a bowl of chowder and the beastie therein grabs his tie, squirts his face, etc. Otherwise, this film is a typical Bud and Lou comedy wherein the boys are the caretakers of an all-girl college that is about to go under. Bud takes to the wrestling ring with the "Masked Marvel" (played by Lon Chaney, Jr.) to save the school from bankruptcy.

Audience Reviews for Here Come the Co-eds


A great comedy from Abbott and Costello, laughs and gags a plenty. With the Jonah and the whale skit and Lou's case of amnesia is all one could ask for.
