It's fiesta time in Vista Del Rio, and that means much musical celebration. It's also a time of global war. So, in the updated plot of this exuberant World War II-era remake of the 1929 Wheeler and Woolsey romp, that means little Vista Del Rio is a jalapeño hotbed of Axis spies. The agents intend to use a fiesta radio show to send a coded message, a scheme that may be scrambled silly when stumblebums Doc and Wishy stumble onto it. Bud Abbott and Lou Costello play the inept duo in this musical comedy that -- from riffing on the word "pekinese" to Lou's hunger-fueled food mirage (tastes like chicken!) to his loopy spin within an oversized washing machine -- has the famed funnymen fracturing any situation into goofy glee. Enjoy!
When the beans grow into a magical beanstalk, Jeremy and Jack climb the stalk into a kingdom of fantasy where they meet an animated dancing chorus of friendly mice, a golden goose, a captive princess and, of course, the dreaded giant in an hour of delightful family entertainment.

This wacky spoof of Attack of the 50 Foot Woman and other sci-fi "growth" epics of that era is skillfully helmed by veteran actor/director Sidney Miller (Babes In Arms) and features such beloved comedy greats as long-time Lucille Ball foil Gale Gordon as Dorothy's pompous uncle, plus Charles Lane, Jimmy Conlin, Joey Faye, Peter Leeds and Doodles Weaver. And it's "Wonder filmed" in the miracle of "Amazorama!"
