The Naughty Nineties

Abbott and Costello find themselves in the 1890s on a Mississippi riverboat owned by kindly Captain Sam (Henry Travers). When a group of slick gamblers (Alan Curtis, Rita Johnson and Joe Sawyer) cheat Captain Sam out of his boat and turn the place into a floating gambling palace, Dexter (Bud Abbott) and Sebastian (Lou Costello) come to the captain's rescue. With slapstick routines, the comic duo foil the villains to save the day.

The Time Of Their Lives

This hilarious fantasy-comedy is considered one of Abbott and Costello's most imaginative screen efforts. Horatio Prim and Melody Allen (Lou Costello and Marjorie Reynolds) are mistakenly shot as traitors during the Revolutionary War, and are doomed to remain as ghosts in Danbury Mansion until their innocence is proven. Years later, a nervous young man, following the advice of his psychiatrist (Bud Abbott), plans a quiet weekend in the mansion with his fiancee and her aunt. As soon as Prim overhears the young mans's intent to open the mansion to the public, he and the ghostly Allen begin to haunt the house, with hysterical results. The nervous Abbott witnesses blinking lights, a walking gown and eerie harpsichord music, before the hosts' reputations are restored.
