Abbott & Costello Movie Collection Vol. 1
03/01/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is great if you are a fan of Abbott & Costello. I figuered with 2 discs for 8 of their movies it would be poor quality. I was very surprised to see the excellent quality of the movies on these discs. Very Very Good. Worth every penny."
Good Old Fashioned Comedy

"When I was growing up, Sunday morning routine was going to church, then watching Abbott & Costello. I wanted my children to experience this pair, so they could see how funny simple comedy is without the vulgarities or sexual innuendo. They still crack me up, and I was happy to see my kids splitting their sides with laughter, just like I used to do when I was their ages.

This is a great deal, to get 8 movies at this price, so I got all 3 volumes. DVD's work fine. They fit 2 movies on each side, and each movie has Production Notes in the menu, so you get a historical appreciation for each film.

Because the movies are on both sides of the DVD, they can't print anything on either side, so they printed the disc and side information around the little hole in the center of the DVD (it'll have "Disc A, Side 1", for example). Its a little hard to read, so you need to have enough light and hold it close. The information in the box tells you what movies are on which disc and side.

The DVD with "The Naughty Nineties" has the most complete version of "Who's On First", and its so funny, you can hear the studio crew laughing in the background."
BEHOLD...THE GENIUS OF BUD AND LOU

"For everyone who is satisfied with the comedy that they see today, you havn't seen anything yet! Bud Abbott and Lou Costello were, and are still the undisputed champions of hillarity. There comedy bits they put in there movies are nothing short of brilliant. The best part of their comedy, is that you can watch it with the whole family, from the newborn to grandma, everyone in the family will love these great classics. If you watch Def Comedy Jam, Everybody Loves Raymond, or Friends, then you've seen the Rest, now watch the best!!!
