Audience Reviews for Hit the Ice

One of the duo's greatest features, a classic with gags galore and some of the duo's classic routines. A must see for comedy fans.

Abbott and Costello are mistaken for hitmen by a gangster and are hired to aid in a bank robbery. Only tho duo are sought by the cops for the crime, so they attempt to blackmail the gangsters while on the run from the cops. Funny final chase scene in the snow!
