Nothing like taking a step back in time to see some old school comedy. I really didn't care the movie colors were off a bit, or it didn't have a smooth look. I rented this for the comedy without hearing someone curse every five seconds. Just some good old fashion slap stick fun!

This movie is definitely for those who appreciate stupid, slapstick humor. But it is well worth your time to watch. They take an ordinary children's story and turned it into a comedy. Bud Abbott and Lou Costello are one of my favorite comedy teams, so that factor definitely put this movie high on my list as one of my favorites. With today's modern movies I always have to walk on egg shells with what I watch around my son, this movie offers good clean fun, something that the whole family can enjoy together. No Cursing! No Sex! And No Vulgarity! Also watching it on my Amazon Fire Stick made it even more enjoyable! Two Thumbs Up!

This video stream is from San Diego based LEGEND FILMS, an outfit that specializes in dubs of public domain movies and in colorizing b&w ones. Since 2008, the've also been contracted to distribute a number of older studio pictures, singly and as double features.

.
JACK AND THE BEANSTALK (1952) is a fun family musical that has Lou Costello as a babysitter and in a dream sequence, Jack of the kid's fable. Bud Abbott's dual roles are Lou's lazy, manipulative partner and later he's money-grubbing Mr. Dinklepuss.

This was originally issued on part amber tone/part Supercinecolor film. Supercinecolor was always an iffy proposition, similar in quality to pre-1935 Technicolor's 2-strip process. Oh it's color all right, but strange hues abound.

A bit of history:
Late in their UNIVERSAL days, the boys decided to independently produce two color movies. The first was Bud's ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET CAPTAIN KIDD, the second being Lou's, this far more charming work. In it, he sings:

I fear nothing when I am in the right!
Who ever pushes me around will find me full of fight!
I fear nothing when I do nothing wrong
And so I toddle on my way and sing a merry song!

I'll be defiant and be obstreperous
If any giant should try and salt-and-pepper us!
And I'll rise up, up to my fullest height
'Cause I fear absolutely nothing when I'm in the right!

A man believes what he believes
And by these principles a man must stand
A time will come for rolled-up sleeves
And it might help to have a fist on hand!

I loved Jack and the Beanstalk since I was a little girl! I got it so my Granddaughters could have the same experience and they loved it! They were laughing so hard, it's a movie that can stand the test of time.

Still a great family movie! It has some corny songs except the one Lou sings " I Fear Nothing When I Am in the Right " All in all a very enjoyable film. Bud & Lou are excellent in this film and it has Buddy Baer as the giant.

These two have given me many laughs over the years. It's a good movie to share with grandchildren . All my children were raised with these two funny people.

This was a favorite movie for me as a child, and it still is now. This edition has been restored, so it looks so much better than the original.

Grand kids love it (one of those movies they have to watch endless times.) For my husband and myself it brought back many happy memories!
