Abbott and Costello Hold that Ghost

Gas station attendants Chuck Murray (Bud Abbott) and Ferdie Jones (Lou Costello) aspire to better jobs. Working as temp waiters at Chez Glamour, a high-class nightclub where Ted Lewis and The Andrews Sisters perform, Chuck and Ferdie cause a ruckus and are fired by the snooty maitre d' (Mischa Auer). Back at the service station, gangster "Moose" Mattson (William B. Davidson) brings his car in for gas. When he is spotted by the police, he speeds off with Chuck and Ferdie caught inside the vehicle. During the chase Matson trades shots with the police and is killed. According to the gangster's unconventional will, which states that whoever was with him when he died will inherit his estate, the boys inherit Mattson's rundown tavern, the Forrester's Club. Mattson had also given a cryptic clue about a hidden stash of money, stating that he "kept his money in his head," but its existence and location remain a mystery.
