AFRICA SCREAMS (1949) ** ½

Hillary Brooke hires department store workers Bud Abbott and Lou Costello as guides for her jungle expedition. They run afoul of headhunters and men in gorilla suits.  This average entry in the team’s filmography features two of the Three Stooges (Shemp Howard and Joe Besser) and the boxing brothers Max and Buddy Baer.  Brooke and Besser later co-starred in Abbott and Costello’s TV show.
