Abbott & Costello at their best

"just wanted to let anyone interested know (as it's not mentioned on this page) that this 4 pack includes the two films "Jack and the Beanstalk" (1952, 78 min.) and "Africa Screams" (1949, 79 min.), episodes of "The Abbott and Costello Show," and the documentary "Abbott and Costello in the Movies.""
Not a Great Compilation

"Unless you are looking for a smattering of several different formats to get feel for A & C, the average consumer and A & C fan would be better-off buying a selected individual movie or the new 8 movie collection coming out in February. The movies included are weak compared to the usual A & C talent-studded endeavors (Jack and the Beanstalk and Africa Screams). These are two of the earlier works - not bad, but not up to their other films, in my opinion. They lack the story quality, settings, and cast of their other films that they manage to work their great humor around so successfully. The other DVD's weren't bad and include their history of work and lives on one and clips of their television show on the other. Again, OK, but there are so many other great ones available!"

"Further information regarding the two films in this box, Africa & Jack is that they were made by MGM after the boys were lent out to them; a common practice in the days when stars were contracted to the studios. This is also the reason why these two films are not included on the Universal Box Sets as they were made by MGM. They are not held in high regard, the humour is thin and sparse and lacks the magic of some of the others."
