Abott and Costello 8 classic films,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Abbott & Costello: 8 Classic Films [DVD] (DVD)
Once more, this kind of a collection is for fans of a duo, and of a nostalgia from an era in which films were much different from films today. The team made a lot of comedy films and all contained some classic comedy routines which harkened back to the burlesque and vaudville days which even predated the Aand C films themselves. Thus, while most of their material in the stories was original a lot had been borrowed from what were popular and time honored gags. If not for the likes of A and C these gags might have faded into obscurity. Thanks to such film work they have not. This set is also particularly fun if you are also a fan of the famed Universal Horror classics turned out in the 30's and 40's, with their monsters. These versions made as that era was coming to a close was the last gasp, though a merry one, at those films as the new era of Sci-Fi creatures dawned.
