Synopsis:
Double bill of classic comedy featuring Lou Abbott and Bud Costello.

Meet the Invisible Man (1951)
Brand new detectives Bud Alexander (Bud Abbott) and Lou Francis (Lou Costello) agree to help prize fighter Tommy Nelson (Arthur Franz) prove he didn't kill his manager. Tommy decides to become invisible to track down the killer by taking a serum injection, and then takes Bud and Lou to the gym where Morgan (Sheldon Leonard), his crooked manager who wanted Tommy to take a dive, hangs out. Tommy prods Bud into introducing Lou as a fighter and then succeeds in proving Lou's abilities by throwing the punches for him. This prompts Morgan to offer Lou a fight that Tommy hopes will be able to prove Morgan's responsibility for his manager's death.
Go to Mars (1953)
Abbott and Costello zoom into outer space and disrupt everything in sight in this parody of science fiction films! While helping to load a rocket ship, Lester (Bud Abbott) and Orville (Lou Costello) accidentally hit the starter button and take off. Aided by special effects, they fly around skyscrapers, through the Holland Tunnel, and on to New Orleans where the locals' Mardi Gras costumes convince them they've landed o mars. Another accidental launch really does take them into space and onto the planet Venus. The place is loaded with pretty girls (including Miss Universe contestants from earth) and the Queen (Marie Blanchard), who banished men 400 years ago because her husband was unfaithful. As always, the perfect straight man and the perfect buffoon turn the unexpected and the ludicrous into delight.
