Wistful Widow Of Wagon Gap (1947)

This Bud Abbott and Lou Costello comedy set in the West is one of their better vehicles. Traveling through a small Montana town, Costello accidentally shoots the town vagrant and the local ordinance says he is obligated to take care of the widow of the dead man. The widow is Marjorie Main in full battle axe mode. Comedic highpoints include a frog in Costello’s soup (pretty hysterical) and a poker game with Main. Mindless fun. Directed by Charles Barton. With Audrey Young and George Cleveland.
