ABBOTT AND COSTELLO IN THE FOREIGN LEGION (Theatrical Release USA 1950)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

Abbott and Costello in The Foreign Legion—not the best of Abbott and Costello comedy—serves up more average fare than expected of these two comedians. For Abbott and Costello fandom it still works as a watch.

Storyline

Two men accidentally end up in the Foreign Legion.
