Universal refused to spend the money to make an Abbott and Costello film in color so the duo decided to do it themselves. They had an agreement with Universal which stated they could make one independent film per year therefore they decided to do it themselves using Costello’s company, Exclusive Productions. They also filmed a second color film, Abbott and Costello Meet Captain Kidd, using Abbott’s company Woodley Productions.
