ABBOTT AND COSTELLO BOX SET (4 DVDs)

This set includes two feature films: AFRICA SCREAMS and JACK AND THE BEANSTALK. In AFRICA SCREAMS the boys masquerade as big game hunters and co-star with two of the Stooges: Shemp Howard and Joe Besser. Also featured are big guys Max and Buddy Baer. Plus, a giant ape. Lou's daughter, Chris Costello, cites JACK AND THE BEANSTALK as her favorite Abbott and Costello film because it has her dad in tights singing! It is a charming film that begins in sepia ton and as the dream/fairy tale begins, turns to color (like in THE WIZARD OF OZ). Look for a very spooky underlit giant! The other two discs are neat pieces too. ABBOTT AND COSTELLO IN THE MOVIES features a boat load of trailers, plus many outtakes from many films. I've seen a lot of ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN outtakes, but there are a few here I've never seen before! On the forth disc, it's THE COLGATE COMEDY HOUR with Bud and Lou. Lou is mistaken for the ruler of a fictional country and it's one great bit after another with them cracking each other up on live TV. Bud really loses it in one scene, while Lou turns away laughing. Lou even knocks over a set back drop in one scene, A hoot! The prints on the two feature films are excellent quality too!
