Double bill of classic comedy featuring Lou Abbott and Bud Costello. 'In the Foreign Legion' (1950) sees wrestling promoters Jonesy (Abbot) and Lou (Costello) arrive in Arabia looking for their absconded star attraction, Wee Willie Davis. Instead of finding him, though, they manage to get themselves signed up for the French Foreign Legion. The duo's bumbling attempts to make good as soldiers don't get them very far and matters aren't helped by Lou's regular and bizarre mirage sightings. The trouble really begins, however, when they uncover a plot between their superior officer (Walter Slezak) and the evil Sheik Hamud El Khalid (Douglas Dumbrille). In 'Abbott and Costello Meet The Keystone Cops' (1955) Bud and Lou revisit the golden days of silent film. The year is 1914, and pals Harry (Abbott) and Willis (Costello) find employment in Hollywood after being tricked into investing in a dud studio by a conman. The duo end up working with the Mack Sennett group and the famous Keystone Cops (played here not by the originals, but by a group of actors specifically trained by Sennett for the film). However, when Sennett's studio is also swindled by the crook, the comedy police team find themselves turning crime busters for real!
Legendary American comedy duo Abbott and Costello feature in In the Foreign Legion (1950) and Meet the Keystone Cops (1955).

In 'The Foreign Legion', our wholesome twosome are wrestling promoters that lose their star wrestler when he refuses to throw a fight. Abbott and Costello go to Algeria to bring him back and end up joining the foreign legion. Some of the situations are not entirely original but still very funny, and I rate this film at 4 stars.
In 'Meet The Keystone Kops', the boys end up in Hollywood playing stuntmen in a movie. There is a lot of slapstick comedy in this film and a great chase scene at the end with appearances by the actual Keystone Kops. This film is one of their best and I rate it at 4.5 stars.
Overall it's a very good combination though not quite reaching the heights of some of my favourite Abbott and Costello movies (such as 'Hold That Ghost', 'Who Done It' and 'Meet Frankenstein').
