Abbott and Costello Meet Captain Kidd (1952)

Swashbuckling nonsense as Abbott and Costello go in search of the titular pirate’s secret treasure when, as two tavern waiters on the pirate island of Tortuga, they are accidentally given a treasure map.

In between the comedy and songs of the two stars, Charles Laughton chews the scenery with wild abandon as the fearsome Captain Kidd.
