The Noose Hangs High is a remake of the 1939 film For the Love of Money and features the famous duo Abbott and Costello. In the film, two window washers, Ted Higgins (Bud Abbott) and Tommy Hinchcliffe (Lou Costello) are working for Speedy Service Window Washing Company, when they run into bookie, Nick Craig (Joseph Calleia). He mistakes them for messengers from Speedy Messenger Service and hands them $50,000 to deliver the cash to Mr. Stewart (Ben Weldon). Mr. Stewart devised a plan to have the messengers robbed, so he can get more money out of Nick. Ted and Tommy run away from the robbers and go into a mail order company. Trying to get rid of the money before the robbers find them, they shoved it into an envelope and mailed in back to Nick. The only problem is that the envelopes gets mixed up and the money ends up being delivered to Carol (Cathy Downs), a receptionist in a small office. By the time Ted and Tommy find her, she has spent most of the money and only has $2,000 left. Ted and Tommy head to the racetrack to try to win the money back before Nick finds out what happened.moreless
