Lum & Abner: Dreaming Out Loud

Two backwood hillbillies become amateur detectives in their quest for a killer.
Starring: Chester Lauck &Norris Gott Directed by: Malcolm St. Clair
Continuing their hugely successful radio program (which ran from 1931 to 1956), Lum and Abner's 1940 big screen debut has the comic duo running the Jot 'Em Down General Store in the hick town of Pine Ridge, Arkansas. Lum and Abner (Chester Lauck and Norris Goff) squabble and play checkers while evaluating all sorts of newfangled inventions from traveling salesmen. The pair's genteel days are filled with ambling interactions with the colorful locals and by modestly performing more than a few good deeds for their impoverished town. The tragic hit-and-run of little Emmy Lou turns the homespun proprietors into crusading social activists as they campaign to bring a mobile first aid unit to Pine Ridge. Lum and Abner face the opposition of miserly, rich town dowager Jessica Spence and find an ally for reform in Doc Walt Barnes. Regrettably, it takes Dr. Walt's untimely stroke to illustrate the necessity of good universal health care.

Lum & Abner: The Bashful Bachelor

Abner agrees to become an "accident victim" so that Lum can pretend to save him and become the a town hero.
Starring: Chester Lauck &Norris Gott Directed by: Harold Young
Lum (Chester Lauck) courts spinster Geraldine (ZaSu Pitts) in the second installment of the popular Lum and Abner series. The chaste lovebirds fill evenings reading heroic tales of the knights of old. Romance is obvious between the two, however they are both too shy to express their true feelings. At the Jot 'Em Down General Store, an overflowing emporium of odd merchandise, Lum proposes a cockeyed plan to his business partner and best friend Abner (Norris Goff). Lum believes that if they stage several phony emergencies and he is able to rescue Abner in each one of these, his lady love, Geraldine will fall for him for sure, when he finally gets up the gumption to offer his hand in marriage. The plan goes hilariously awry as Lum and Abner's adventures lead them to realize that the truest heroic trait of all is modesty.

Abner (of the famous radio show "Lum and Abner") is incorrectly diagnosed with a fatal illness and takes on a series of comically dangerous stunts in order to cover his debts.
Starring: Chester Lauck &Norris Gott Directed by: Malcolm St. Clair
When Abner Peabody is mistakenly diagnosed as having two weeks to live, his partner Lum Edwards is convinced that they can earn a fortune by volunteering the condemned Abner for all sorts of dangerous stunts. A worthless inheritence has lured them to Chicago, and the bumbling pair will do anything to raise enough funds to get back to Pine Ridge and repay the money they solicited from their friends back home. One ridiculous stunt after another finds Abner agreeing to drink a bizarre Jekyll and Hyde potion, staying overnight in a haunted house, and even taking a rocket ship to Mars!

Lum & Abner: So This Is Washington

Two folksie hillbillies think they've discovered a formula for synthetic rubber and travel to Washington to help the war effort.
Starring: Chester Lauck &Norris Gott Directed by: Raymond McCarey
The battles of World War II rage in Europe while Lum and Abner hold down the home front at the Jot 'Em Down General Store in backwater Pine Ridge, Arkansas. The duo do their duty by performing the wartime tasks of operating the local Draft Board, Ration Board and serving as the town's Air Raid Wardens. Politician Chester W. Marshall of The Civilian War Effort Office puts out a nationwide plea for the common man to come forward with any inventions that might aid the war effort. Abner reckons that his homemade licorice is a form of synthetic rubber and he and Lum head for D.C. Arriving in Washington, Lum and Abner hilariously do their best not to "act country" as they face big city challenges such as a housing shortage and crooked con men. Taking up residence on a park bench near the Senate, Lum and Abner are discovered by a congressman and, as word spreads of their unusual intelligence, they start dispensing advice to big wig politicos who line up at dawn for an audience with them. As Abner is about to unveil his synthetic rubber at Marshall's press conference, he is hit on the head and wakes up with amnesia, dementedly believing that he is "Buster V. Davenport." With the fate of the war hanging in the balance, it's up to Lum to bring his buddy back.
