Editorial Reviews

In his final film (and only starring role without partner Bud Abbott), the one and only Lou Costello plays Artie Pinsetter, a would-be inventor who needs to create something in a hurry when his girlfriend (Dorothy Provine, It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World) is mysteriously turned into a giantess. This wacky spoof of Attack of the 50 Foot Woman and other sci-fi "growth" epics of that era is skillfully helmed by veteran actor/director Sidney Miller (Babes In Arms) and features such beloved comedy greats as long-time Lucille Ball foil Gale Gordon as Dorothy's pompous uncle, plus Charles Lane, Jimmy Conlin, Joey Faye, Peter Leeds and Doodles Weaver. And it's "Wonder filmed" in the miracle of "Amazorama!" Newly remastered.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

This product is expected to play back in DVD Video "play only" devices, and may not play in other DVD devices, including recorders and PC drives.

If you get the "Complete Universal Studios' Abbott & Costello Collection", THAT's what you get:
all of the UNIVERSAL STUDIOS A & C movies. But, to complete your collection you'll need a few more.

This one is the only one Lou did without Bud -- it literally killed him.

Bummer!

This is NOT, by ANY measure, an e-x-c-e-l-l-e-n-t film, but it is much better when seen in --- the original ---
" wonder filmed 'A=M=A=Z=O=S=C=O=P=E' ."

This 1959 film IS Black and White, but it's the only one EITHER of "the boys" made in w-i-d-e-s-c-r-e-e-n.
Buy the correct one!
Only THIS ONE =======>The 30 Foot Bride of Candy Rock<======= is in widescreen.
(All six of the other c-h-e-a-p-e-r ones are pan-and-scan/cut off at the sides.)
This will fill all 55" of your widescreen TV... corner to corner x four.

*****************************************************************************************************
Extra info, in no way regarding THIS pristine, restored, widescreen, re-master:
*****************************************************************************************************
Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein [Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy] (Universal's 100th Anniversary) is
yet another RE-mastered classic. So darn clear you can see all of Lon Chaney, Jr.'s eyelashes
[and he doesn't have many!] each time he morphs into WOLFMAN.
Highly recommended --- yes! --- even if you HAVE the DVD. Which reminds me, the DVD you get as a bonus
when you order the new BLU-RAY is the same old scrathed-up OLD version. Oh!

4.0 out of 5 stars Going Out On A Surprisingly High Note June 18, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
at some point during their infamous feud, Jack Benny compared his semi-friendly rival Fred Allen to Abbott without Costello. no offense to Bud Abbott, a thoroughly on-the-dime straight man who contributed as much to the act as did Lou Costello (as does any comedian's straight man, really), but it does sound rather bland doesn't it?
as opposed to Costello without Abbott?
much has been made of this film and it's affect on it's erstwhile star, because (a) it was his one outing without Bud Abbott, and (b) it turned out to be a posthumous release. it "killed him," some say. and of course, like anyone's last hurrah, there are inevitably those who'll insist it must mean the magic has dissipated. people frequently, for instance, see a tv series ending it's run and assume the series doesn't "have it" anymore. it never occurs to the average person that it might've been a lousy timeslot, for instance, or maybe the fad has simply run it's course.
i'm not qualified to give a definitive answer here. all i'm in any position to say is that i enjoyed this film a lot more than i expected to. as an admirer of Lou Costello's, i was sure i would appreciate the effort, but certainly wasn't expecting the level of whimsical fun i encountered. it's no ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN by any stretch, but it's as much good fun as, say, IN SOCIETY or THE WISTFUL WIDOW OF WAGON GAP.
as for the most obvious complication, the straight man role so expertly handled for so long by Abbott is here filled by the marvelous Gale Gordon. Gordon handles the role equally well in his own way with his legendary "slow burn" technique. the result may not have precisely the rhythm or nature of Abbott & Costello, but "Gordon & Costello" has it's own magic in it's own way.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tall Bride Fails to Match Tall Expectations November 17, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
My elementary school often showed this movie as a treat for its students during the 1960's holiday seasons. I never could remember the name of the film until I received help from the people at namethatmovie.org. Low and behold, Amazon had it available to stream, and watching it, I was excited to see bits and pieces that I remembered from long ago. Unfortunately for this film, my tastes and expectations have matured quite a bit over the years and this movie didn't stand up to my own improvements. Lou Costello was really miscast as the protagonist; he was much too old and desperate for the part. Additionally, the plot was weak and full of holes, not unexpected in a B-type movie. Despite all the problems with the movie I still gave it three stars since in this case, the power of nostalgia mitigates the problems of quality.

3.0 out of 5 stars SPHE Edition (March 4, 2011) September 29, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is my review of the SPHE edition.
The video quality is great.
The film is not so.
There are no subtitles.
I recommend this release for Abbot and Costello completists (even if it's a Costello solo).

4.0 out of 5 stars A Major fan May 5, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have been a major fan of Bud and Lou since I was a teenager. It is very saddening that this was Lou's last film and he never got to see it. He died two months before it came out. Although not one of his best, he does prove here and in the "Wagon Train" episode he made six months earlier, that he can hold his own without the help of Bud. I am very happy to have this film in my collection. It is in great condition as well.
