Adventure Has Never Been Dizzier as Abbott & Costello Invade The Dark Continent!

In this lively comedy classic, shifty bookseller Buzz Johnson (Bud Abbott) cons adventuress Diana Emerson (Hillary Brooke) into believing fellow salesman Stanley Livingston (Lou Costello) is an expert on Africa in order to bilk money from the wealthy woman. However, the plucky Diana has planned an expedition into the heart of the Dark Continent in search of a lost diamond mine. Coincidentally, mild-mannered Stanley has memorized a rare book that contained the treasure map, and despite Stanley's irrational fear of wild animals, Buzz insists they join Diana and her two crooked henchmen on the safari. Their wacky trek brings them face-to-face with a nearsighted explorer and his prissy assistant (Shemp Howard and Joe Besser), a cannibal chief (Martin Wilkins), a couple of lion tamers (Frank Buck and Clyde Beatty), a pair of off-course boxers (Max Baer and Buddy Baer), and an amorous gorilla that falls in love with Stanley!
