    Well, at least we will finally get the last 3 Universal movies, which are superior to many of their movies included in set #3.

    This is the last three movies that Abbott & Costello did for Universal.
    Abbott & Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
    Abbott & Costello Meet the Keystone Kops
    Abbott & Costello Meet the Mummy

    You may notice that "IT AIN'T HAY" is missing from these DVD sets. Universal could not come to agreement with the Damon Runyon estate for the rights to put the story out on DVD. Sigh, again we miss out because of greed.

    To fill out this DVD set It would have been nice if Universal worked out a deal for Abbott & Costello's independent films. Where is "A & C MEET CAPTAIN KIDD", and quality copies of the Public Domain films "JACK AND THE BEANSTALK" & "AFRICA SCREAMS"? Or even the Docu-Drama "BUD & LOU" starring Harvey Korman & Buddy Hackett.

    Instead, Universal pads out the set with two "clip" movies that show us the highlights of what we already have: "THE WORLD OF ABBOTT & COSTELLO" and "ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET JERRY SEINFIELD". There is also a documentary.

    Well, at least we will finally get the last 3 Universal movies, which are superior to many of their movies included in set #3.

    Format: DVD
    None of the best of Abbott & Costello is actually included here, but fans will no doubt love it. The set includes a couple of much-liked horror spoofs, a comic misfire based in the early days of Hollywood, and a trio of documentary-type offerings to round out the package.

    In 1953, coming off a string of terrible films that included COMIN' ROUND THE MOUNTAIN, LOST IN ALASKA, A&C MEET CAPTAIN KIDD, and A&C GO TO MARS, the boys fell back on the tried-and-true box-office success of their "meet the monsters" films once again with ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE, and brought back Boris Karloff to help ensure a winner. Bud and Lou are two American coppers helping Scotland Yard solve the "Mr. Hyde" murders. They're also helping their friend Craig Stevens woo pretty Helen Westcott, not knowing that she's the niece of Boris Karloff, who is kindly old Dr. Jekyll (an unbilled stuntman is actually Mr. Hyde). In one sequence, Costello is trapped in a wax museum with Dracula and Frankenstein Monster figures that spring to life, which only makes us want to remove this disc from the player and watch A&C MEET FRANKENSTEIN instead. Like all their monster spoofs, this is weak compared to MEET FRANKENSTEIN but in the overall A&C scheme of things, it's okay.

    A&C MEET THE KEYSTONE KOPS (1955) is next, and had this movie been made 12 or 13 years earlier, it might've been one of Bud & Lou's best. Unfortunately, the aging comedy team (joined by even-more-aging former Keystoners Hank Mann, Herold Goodwin, Heinie Conklin, and Mack Sennett himself) wasn't up to the task of recreating the manic pace of early silent comedies.

    It's indeed great to have the last few films on this final collection (Jekyll and Hyde in particular), but why is this volume with less discs and less movies MORE expensive than the other volumes? And even worse, neither the packaging nor the discs themselves give ANY indication as to which movies are on which sides of each disc. You have to pop them into your dvd player and wait for the menu to come up to find out. Blatant mistreatment of these precious films...

    Although Meet The Mummy is a decent swan-song for Abbott and Costello with Universal Pictures after an incredible run of about 30 films I can't really recommend buying this DVD unless you can get it dirt-cheap or if for some reason you only like this A&C vehicle and none of their later films. Unlike the companion edition ...Meet Frankenstein, which is filled with wonderful special features that were not included with Best Of Volume 3, Meet The Mummy contains almost nothing except for production notes and cast and crew, and when Universal releases Best Of Volume 4 you will be paying no more than three dollars per movie which has made the Abbott and Costello Best Of series one of the best DVD values available.

    Format: DVD
    ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET THE MUMMY was one of the funniest of their screwball antics. The tale of the two cleverest yucksters chasing a medallion to an ancient Egyptian crypt where they encounter -- as the title promises -- the Mummy is one classic set of laughs after another. All of the trades touched on the bitterness the two men felt for one another during the filming process of this outing, but, with all the magic of their performances still on the silver screen, you sure wouldn't know it. A great transfer for a classic addition to any DVD library, this is one for the ages.

    A couple of years ago if somebody announced that 3 A&C films, any 3 except the PD ones, and 3 documentaries would be available from Universal for less than $20 everyone would have dashed to buy it. However, since Universal put out 3 previous 8 film sets at fire sale prices suddenly this seems like a bad deal. A&C Meet the Mummy was originally more expensive than this by itself. My rating is for the films included which are not among the team's best but this is still a great deal.
