    Format: DVD
    This set is as solid a value as Volume One, perhaps more so. There are more weak films in this package than in the first volume but the strongest films included are among the pair's best. The transfers, once again are excellent. Because the material is newer the audio quality is better. This should be a must for all fans of Bud and Lou.

    Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein ****

    This is (without a doubt) one of their best features. Between the presence of the full line of Universal Studio's famous monsters and the duo in top form there's hardly a moment in this film that doesn't work. The film features one of their strongest takes on the "moving candle" routine. The interplay between the pair while they read the about the legends of the monsters is fabulous. Lou's scene in the Monster's lap is not to be missed.

    Mexican Hayride ***

    This is a bit off the beaten track for Bud and Lou. It's one of the few times that Bud played somebody who was actually bad as opposed to just being frustrated with and (prone to) taking advantage of the slow-witted character Lou played. It is funny though. The bullfight is not to be missed. There's also the logic of how the stock " has to be good" and the bit with the "Mother-lode". It's not their best but is far from their worst. What it lacks in consistency it often makes up for in warmth.

    Abbott and Costello Meet the Killer **

    This should have been far better. The plot is sound enough and the cast was strong. Boris Karloff wasn't used nearly as well as he could have been. He's central to the film's best (and funniest) scene but languishes as a secondary character afterward. There aren't enough of the regular exchanges that take place between Bud and Lou. The ones that are there are too short.

    I just can't get enough of Abbott and Costello!
    I waited for quite a few years for ANY Abbott and Costello movies to hit DVD. There were very few in print. It was frustrating.
    Well, the wait paid off big time. The first two sets were incredible. Universal has gone the extra mile and these sets are winners on so many levels.
    Each set thus far includes 8 HIGH QUALITY films for under $20!
    When I say HIGH QUALITY, I'm not just talking about the quality of the prints, which is very high, but the movies themselves are not lost turkeys. These are the truly all classics, and this set includes some of the great Universal Monster tie-ins, which were previously sold individually for more than the price of this set of 8!
    Based upon the track record for classic movies going out of print, I suggest you buy them while they are still in this format.

    Format: DVD
    8 additional films from the comedy masters Bud Abbott and Lou Costello including their best Monster films.

    This a two DVD doulbe sided set with two films on each side. There are no additional features for this DVD.

    *****Meet Frankenstein - (and Dracula with a breif unappearance by the invisible man. This is the best of the monster films. Bud and Lou work at the freight station and deliver two packages to the local house of horrors. They contain Dracula and Frankestein (played by the great ones Lugosi and Chaney). Dracula wants to revive Frankenstein by using Lou's brain. It is a great time with the classic monsters.

    ****Mexican Hayride - This is based on a Cole Porter musical (without the Cole Porter songs). Bud has swindled a town out their savings and pinned it on Lou. Lou has followed Bud to Mexico and is in turned chased by the Feds. This is light weight but still enjoyable.

    **Meet the Killer, Boris Karloff - Bud and Lou work at a hotel. A famous lawyer is killed and all the guests have a motive for murder. This is a poor example of the duo's work but does have its moments. One of them is not Karloff who plays a laughable hypnotist.

    **In the Foriegn Legion - Bud and Lou a wrestling promoters but their star wrestler bolts and returns to Algeria. Bud and Lou follow to get him back and get involved with a corrupt sheik. Very predictable.

    ***Meet the Invisible Man - A man boxer is framed for murder. His girlfriend's father is a mad scientist who has developed a syrum for invisibility but not perfected it. Of course its accidently injected into the boxer. Short story long.... Lou with the help of the invisible boxer becomes a contender and traps the real killers. Weak premise but Lou has some great scenes.

    I remember growing up watching old Abbott and Costello movies on Sunday afternoons with my Dad (along with the classic monster movies and the old Blondie shows). Buying these DVD's is like reliving great memories from my youth. The picture quality on these DVD's is outstanding - they are very well done. This third volume in this series is going to be the best of them all - this DVD will have some of my all time favorite A&C movies. I have watched the first two volumes numerous times since purchasing them and look forward to this next volume with great anticipation.
