Movie Info

One reviewer of Abbott & Costello's Lost in Alaska summed up the proceeding in three pithy words: "Lost is right." While not A&C's worst film, it's several miles removed from their best. Cast as firemen in turn-of-the-century San Francisco, Bud and Lou rescue would-be suicide Tom Ewell. It turns out that Ewell is mooning over his former girl friend, saloon chanteuse Mitzi Green.

Audience Reviews for Lost in Alaska

Another Abbott and Costello movie that I never got a chance to see on TV. Don't believe this one got much air play, which is a shame as its up there with their best. Working in San Francisco as firemen they save a love sick miner from Alaska from jumping in the river to end it all. Somehow they end up in Alaska to join with the lady of the miners dreams to recover and move his gold before others get it. Many funny routines throughout this film Good clean comedy from an era when clean comedy was COMEDY. 4 Stars

Although Bud and Lou are always a pleasure to watch, this consists of mostly rehashed humor, although the sequence where Bud tricks Lou into keeping watch all night can cause some smiles.

Super Reviewer

Decent, but not great. Still, it's Bud and Lou, so it's gonna be funny.
