" Hold your hats ... the roof is 'bout to tumble in "

     Typical Olsen and Johnson's No plot, Crazy as hell and anything goes at over 100 miles an hour with a cast of hundreds!. Based on the hit Broadway play Hellzapoppin' which ran from 1938-1941. This wacky, sight-gag filled romp stars Olsen and Johnson as a pair of actors whose attempt to stage a musical at a swanky estate is hampered when the show's producer begins to woo one of the venue's upscale residents, the female lead is mistaken for a wealthy femme fatale, and the whole production arouses the suspicion of a bumbling private eye. The movie version fails to

completely capture the spirit of the original play. Academy Award® Nominee: Best Song: " Pig Foot Pete."


Probably the single most famous Lindy Hop scene in film History. The Whitey's Lindy Hoppers appear in their greatest film dance routine which took them all around the world. Dean Collins is also an important figure in this movie as well dancing with Martha Raye.
