Little Giant

Synopsis: Lou Costello plays a country bumpkin vacuum-cleaner salesman, working for the company run by the crooked Bud Abbott. To try to keep him under his thumb, Abbott convinces Costello that he's a crackerjack salesman. This comedy is somewhat like "The Time of Their Lives," in that Abbott and Costello don't have much screen time together and there are very few vaudeville bits woven into the plot.
Genre: Comedy
Director(s): William A. Seiter
Production: Off the Fence Productions

from the tonic I use on my head, huh?

Talk about my wife... I don't

wanna talk about your wife.

Now my wife isn't good

enough to be talked about!

Just come out and say it. I know what you're

thinking. My wife is a miserable old hag.

Just the thought of kissing my wife

makes a person sick and disgusted.

I wouldn't say that. I think

kissing your wife's a pleasure.

You're the guy, huh? Mister,

please, I don't mean any harm.

Please, leave me alone. I'm only

trying to be a good salesman.

And a good salesman should never take

no for an answer. What do you say?

No! Good. That's all I wanted to know.

It's nice doing business

with a man like you.


Ma? Ma?

It worked!

It worked, Ma!

Benny? Ma, I did everything

I was supposed to.

I looked him in the eye, confidentially,

and I wouldn't take no for an answer.

Boy, did I sell him

a lot of stuff.

That's fine, Benny. How much

did it come to all together?

What? How much money did you get?



Hey, you!

Hey, you,

come back here!

How do you like that?

A crook.

Ah, keep your shirt on!

Martha? Martha!

I didn't know it was you. You

don't have to take your shirt...

It was somebody else,

'cause when I was...



My last lesson.

And something else too.

Oh, gosh! I'm so proud of you, Benny.

Are ya? Mm-hmm. Nobody

thought you'd ever graduate.

That is, nobody but me.

I was sure you'd make it.

Today I am a salesman. Yoo-hoo?


any mail for me?

No, Mrs. Miller. Come on. Let's graduate!

Oh, Mom!


Come on in.

You're just in time.


Give it to me.

I almost didn't graduate.

You better let me. You're too

nervous. It's the excitement.

Students and dear

friends and family...

who have congregated for this

joyful occasion, be seated, please.
