Abbott & Costello wear ten gallon hats in Ride 'Em Cowboy
Not having seen it in over 30 years, I just went to YouTube and watched Ride 'Em Cowboy again. Hilarious stuff almost from beginning to end with occasional interruptions for music and romance between Dick Foran and Anne Gwynne. Loved that car chase scene with some Indians (or Native Americans as they're now called) involving both rear projection and stunt driving. And, yes, there's a cow milking scene with Costello asking "The cow's udder what?" when Abbott tells him to put the bucket under it. All in all, one of the funniest ones from the boys. P.S. Since it's almost Black History Month, I have to cite the contributions of singer Ella Fitzgerald for both "A-Tisket, A-Tasket" (which she co-wrote) and a jive square dance number called "Rockin' and Reelin'" with The Merry Macs. Fine numbers both among others. Also, during the latter, there's many African-American dance couples joining in of which one of them had reportedly Dorothy Dandridge there. There was also a trio of male tap dancers called The High Hatters at the ranch. One more thing, I always like to cite anyone from my favorite movie It's a Wonderful Life whenever they appear in another movie or TV show so it is that George Bailey's father-Sameul S. Hinds-appears here as Ms. Gwynne's father. He was previously in A & C's Buck Privates. And Charles Lane-the one who showed Potter George's plans for Bailey Park-plays Martin Manning, a columnist critical of Foran's character.
