Starring: Abbott & CostelloJack and the Beanstalk: Bud and Lou meet Mother Goose! One of the few colour feature films Abbott and Costello made, it actually starts out in black and white but soon springboards into a truly colourful fairy tale. Lou plays the bumbling fool Jack, repeatedly tricked by the conniving Mr. Dinglepuss (Abbott) who sells him the magic beans. Their adventures take them up the beanstalk where they find a magic castle, a talking harp, and a hen that lays golden eggs. They also encounter a fearsome giant in one of the funniest and most enjoyable of Bud and Lou's many movies. Music, merriment and laughter combine to bring fun for the whole family! This feature presentation also includes a special bonus with the addition of the original theatrical trailer for Jack and the Beanstalk.
