AMUSING A&B OUTING! GOODTIMES RELEASE IS THE BEST!
! MR. KNOW IT ALL ;-b | TRI STATE AREA | 09/01/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)
"I'm a fan of Abbott and Costello and was curious about the films not included on their massive box set that covers almost every film they starred in. 'Jack and the Beanstalk' was one of the 5 films not included on that set, but finding a decent print on DVD wasn't going to be easy having been in public domain for many years. I tried a few different releases with some disappointing results, washed out and blurry video and low audio. I happened to come across a release by Goodtimes video and found the print to be very good. The color and picture are clear and despite having some scratches, it is a pleasure to see this film looking this good. The Goodtime release is out of print, but you can find copies of it for under $5.00. If you're a A&B complete-ist, this is is the one you want....at least until a proper special edition is released.
The film itself is fairly enjoyable for the young at heart and A&B fans. It's of course very juvenile, but has its charms. If you grew up watching it, then you will have fond memories of it. It's not their best film, but a worthy addition to any A&B film fan's collection."
