In Society

In Society is a 1944 film starring the comedy team of Abbott and Costello. It was the first of five Abbott and Costello films to be directed by Jean Yarbrough. It was re-released in 1953.


Eddie Harrington and Albert Mansfield are plumbers who receive a call about a leak in the private bathroom of Mr. Van Cleve, a wealthy businessman. The grumpy man, though his costume is ready, does not attend the ball but goes to bed instead. The leak is keeping him awake, but the costume ball that his wife is throwing downstairs is not.
