Hey Abbott

The skinny one of the duo abbott and costello was brilliant-his voice so suited his character-even when he was not the focus-he reacted to all that was being done and this is a sign of a great actor-he reminded me of the late Bareback mountain actor-this actor with his greased parted hair really played the straight man in thre most brilliant possible manner-aside from being so handsome-I know he will be a household name- the heavier actor looked the part exactly-he played his part more mellow then the original character-I think it needed more punch on his part-the other characters were fine-I felt the lady a bit weak-not sure about some scenes when she gets in the way of one of them that would have been better cut out-the baseball scene was the best-just one to long of a black out at one point-but a great piece of of theatre-this was pure comedy. My mother could not stop laughing.
