Product Description

Product Description

Double bill of classic comedy featuring Lou Abbott and Bud Costello. 'The Naughty Nineties' (1945) depicts a successful Mississippi riverboat in the gay nineties run by Captain Sam (Henry Travers) and two loveable crewmembers Dexter (Abbott) and Sebastian (Costello), popular vaudevillian entertainers. The boat is taken over by the ruthless card sharp Rita Johnson (Bonita Farrow) after she and a pair of crooks swindle Captain Sam in a card school. Their three quarter share in the boat gives them control and they want to turn it into an illegal floating casino. It falls upon Dexter and Sebastian to lend a hand. Famous for having the best film version of their 'who's on first' routine. In 'Time Of Their Lives (1946) Horatio Prim (Lou Costello) and Melody Allen (Marjorie Reynolds) are two Revolutionary War-era ghosts condemned to haunt an old estate until they are proved innocent of charges of treason. When psychiatrist Doctor Greenway (Bud Abbott) arrives as a houseguest, Horatio recognises him as a descendent of his old love rival, and has a great deal of fun tormenting the poor chap. But Greenway soon takes pity on the ghosts, and does his best to help them locate the lost letter from George Washington, which will prove their innocence.

Synopsis

Legendary American comedy duo Abbott and Costello feature in Naughty Nineties (1943) and The Time of Their Lives (1946).

I first saw these films as a child during the summer breaks from school...always had a soft spot for the innocent comedy style. Loved the films and at the price...can't go wrong.

The only thing I would have liked is one or two more films per DVD? But having said that...I did purchase knowing that there were only two films on the DVD and I am happy with the product!

I bought this disc specifically to get hold of: 'The Time of Their Lives' This has always been my favourite Abbott and Costello film because Abbott wasn't the bag guy in it. Ok, at the start, he wasn't a nice fellow - but a few generations later and he is a good man.

That may sound silly, but after Bud always playing the bully, it was nice to see him playing the good guy for a change.

Add a couple of ghosts and to me, this is a winner!

Although I have long enjoyed the knockabout humour of Abbott & Costello, I had never seen these films before and in The Time of Their Lives, it made a change to see Bud Abbott in his own comedy part instead of just being a foil to Costello. Even if you've never enjoyed A & C films, give this one a try. Its fun. Add The Naughty Nineties, with A & C doing their best known routine, 'Who's on First' makes this a must have DVD.

If you are a fan and completeist then this is ideal. The quality isn't great - it would be nice if someone would do a remastered version.
