Summary
  • Africa screams: The boys are a pair of booksellers who find themselves deep in the wilds of Africa when they purport themselves to be knowledgeable of the country. In search of diamonds and led by a beautiful woman named Diana, Abbott and Costello are spurred on by promises of sharing the elusive loot--if they can find it. Along the way they find themselves in sticky situations that involve lion tamers, gigantic gorillas, and an unruly river
  • Jack and the Beanstalk: "A ... adaptation of the ... fairy tale steeped in comedy, Abbott and Costello style. Reminiscent of the cinematography of films like The Wizard of Oz, the movie begins in black and white, later morphing into full cinematic color. The story begins as Jack (Lou Costello), a professional baby-sitter, and his "agent" Dink (Bud Abbott), go to the home of Eloise Larkin (Shaye Cogan) to watch Eloise's troublemaking nephew Donald (David Stollery). As he reads the book Jack and the Beanstalk to Donald, Jack falls asleep and begins to dream that he and his cohorts are part of this fantastical world where he encounters magical creatures as well as a troubled prince and princess. It is a version of the classic fairy tale but with a humorous and unique Abbott and Costello style twist."--Container
