Abbott and Costello play peanut and hot dog vendors who end up as cowhands on a dude ranch with the pair going through their usual antics. What separates RIDE 'EM, COWBOY from their other films is the unusual quality of the musical talent. Ella Fitzgerald, of all people, is a featured

singer, doing some marvelous numbers, including a rousing version of "A Tisket, a Tasket." If you look closely, you'll also see Dorothy Dandridge doing the jitterbug as one of the Congoroos. In one of the film's most riotous scenes, the boys, dressed in loud checkered shirts, play cards with some

western toughs, making a mockery of the game and getting themselves in a heap of trouble with almost no effort at all.
