Abbott & Costello - Here Comes The Co-Eds / In Society DVD
Here Comes The Co-Eds:
The scene is a financially strapped girls' college, where professional dancer Molly (Martha O'Driscoll) lands a scholarship. Molly's Manager-brother Slats (Bud Abbott) has arranged this as a means to publicize his sister's showbiz career, which angers the college's chairman of the board (Charles Dingle), who consequently threatens foreclosing on the school. To keep tabs on Molly and also find ways of raising the mortgage money, Slats and his pal Oliver (Lou Costello) take jobs as school caretakers, immediately running afoul of ill-tempered groundskeeper Johnson (Lon Chaney, JR).

In Society:
Eddie and Albert are a pair of plumbers hired to fix the pipes of a fancy society mansion. While a masquerade party takes place on the first floor, our heroes wreak havoc in the bathroom on the second floor. The angry owners (Thurston Hall and Nella Walker) shoot off a letter of complaint to the plumbers, which gets mixed in with an invitation for a fancy weekend party. Thus it is that Eddie and Albert, accompanied by their female cab-driving pal Elsie (Marion Hutton), show up dressed to the nines as a posh country estate. While the boys get mixed up in further comic complications. Elsie carries on a romance with wealthy and handsome Peter (Kirby Grant). Things come to a head when a valuable painting is stolen, prompting Eddie and Albert to chase after the thieves by commandeering a fire engine!
