There are 15 discs in all: 2 discs in 7 separate folders, with 2 features per disc (the last folder contains 3 discs; with the last disc consisting of bonus features, etc.). My favorite Abbott and Costello features are all here: In Society 1944, Hit The Ice 1943, Buck Privates 1941, Hold That Ghost 1941, Who Done It 1942, The Naughty Nineties 1945, Pardon My Sarong 1942, Abbott And Costello Meet Frankenstein 1948, Abbott And Costello Meet The Killer, Boris Karloff 1949, etc., etc. I just wanted to highlight the ones I cherish and love the most. I wonder if the younger generation can/will appreciate this truly and genuine part of American culture/history. I know that I and, many more people like myself am very grateful that these films have been restored/re-released in this wonderful collection and, is available for everyone to enjoy as their very own. Thank-you---Universal Pictures.
All the films have been digitally re-mastered to a pristine state, the picture and sound quality is absolutely fantastic. NTSC, English (subtitles: English SDH, French, Spanish), plus lots of extras, 44 page booklet, etc., NR
Love and Peace,
"HOLD THAT GHOST" WAS AN EARLY FAVORITE ALONG WITH "HIT THE ICE" AND "WHO DONE IT". WHEN "A&C MEET FRANKENSTEIN" CAME OUT, THAT WAS THE BEST TO DATE IN 1949.
ALL TWENTY EIGHT FILMS IN THE PACKAGE ARE MAGNIFICANTLY RESTORED AND PERFECT IN PICTURE AND CONTENT.
OLNY A FEW ARE NOT UP TO SNUFF IN STORY QUALITY. MY WIFE AND I ENJOYED SOME OF THE MORE OBSCURE LIKE "TIME OF THEIR LIVES", "LITTLE GIANT" AND "IN SOCIETY". THEY ARE NOT SHOWN ON TV EVEN IN THE EARLY 70'S WHEN A&C WERE MAKING A REVIVAL. THERE IS ALSO GREAT SINGING AND DANCING AND BAND NUMBERS MINGLED IN A FEW OF THE FILMS!
I HAVE A LARGE COLLECTION OF THE MOVIES ON 16MM FILM BUT RARLY SHOW THEM AS IT IS A HASSLE.
I DEFINATLY RECOMEND THE A&C UNIVERSAL FILM COLLECTION OVERALL AS IT IS A GREAT WAY TO SPEND AN LONG WINTER'S EVE WATCHING THEIR ANTICS AND JUST GOOD "CLEAN" FUN !
The final disc includes three bonus features. Comedian Jack E. Leonard (1910-1973) narrates "The World Of Abbott and Costello." That collection of movie clips would have been better served without his jarring narration. "Bud Abbott and Lou Costello Meet The Monsters" provides a lot of insightful information about the duo's meetings with Frankenstein, the Killer, Boris Karloff, the Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and the Mummy. "Abbott and Costello Meet Jerry Seinfeld" provides the most biographical information on Bud and Lou, and includes clips from their home movies. This box set is an absolute must have for every Abbott and Costello fan.
