A lovely film

Ride 'Em Cowboy has always been my favourite Abbott & Costello film, since the first time I saw it at 10 years old. Other films of theirs had some of the classic routines, maybe better stories too, but this one has some great routines, great atmosphere and a lot of great songs too. And just as importantly Anne Gwynne never looked lovelier ... even when she was ogling Dick Foran! Was that why she didn't she make the A-list?! It's that Universal Studios 1941 atmosphere that counts most, and Don Raye & Gene de Paul had cooked up some marvellous tunes as well, my favourite being Give Me My Saddle. The marvellous Merry Macs had their bit with Wake Up Jacob, a glorious little ditty I think is still not available on CD. Most of todays music experts would go for Ella's classic A-Tisket A-Tasket though, whilst probably commenting on how demeaning it was for her to appear in such a film. But as far they're concerned not for anyone else appearing though! Favourite bits: Lou's dream sequence "You will You won't"; in the chase "putting out the brake"; the romantic midnight horse ride to the gorgeous I'll Remember April; many other bits of Bud & Lou's, all putting a smile on my face: not forgetting the poker game, breaking in Wildcat, the Red Indian dummy sketch etc. Was Sunbeam the young squaw an inspiration for Tex Avery's cartoons? 82 minutes of joy to fans, however if you don't like A&C, b&w films from 1941, Westerns or slushy music there's nothing for you here.

very funny A+C vehicle

Abbott and Costello, working on a rodeo as hot dog salesman accidently let out a bull while on the run from the boss. The bull gets in the path of celebrated western hero 'Bronco' Bob. He panics and it's up to champion cowgirl, Anne to save his life. She injures her ankle and is out of the competition. He apologises but she's having none of it after discovering he's a big fake. Meanwhile, the boys, still on the run from the boss hide on the train which Anne(and Bronco Bob) are on. A hilarious poker game routine occurs here. Lou's facial expressions are hystrical. Anyway, the boys get jobs on the 'Lazy S' ranch which Anne's father owns where Bob asks Anne for forgiveness and asks her to train him for the upcoming rodeo competition. Meanwhile, Costello accidentally shoots an arrow through the heart of a teepee and by law has to marry a girl(probably played by a man) whom the tent is owned by. So the Indians are after him. The boys do all sorts of routines throughout this very very funny outing which won't disappoint any of their fans. Crazy house routine, swimming pool scene, poker scene and the great driving finale are all highlights in one of their best. One or two of the songs slow the pace though (Foran's only).

The boys own Way Out West?

Well obviously not close to that brilliant offering from Stan & Ollie, but this is a nice genre attempt from Bud & Lou. The guys here are peanut vendors at a rodeo show, after accidentally burning their boss's foot they hide away on a train heading west. They end up at the Lazy S ranch and get work despite the fact that they clearly have no idea what they are letting themselves into. That's as much as you need to know really, there is the usual mix up of songs, love interest, and pure mania that goes with the decent films from the boys considerably large CV. A running plot strand of the guys on the run from Indian's because Lou has accidentally got engaged to a squaw, makes for some great and humorous scenes, but the stand out sequence takes place at a swimming pool, wonderfully funny part of the film. The film isn't really one to win new fans to the comedic talent of the pair because the running time could be too long for some with this brand of humour, but for those already converted, the film sits nicely up at the top with the best of their work. A-ticket, a-tasket, a green and yellow basket! 7/10
