Their zany antics and uncanny comedic timing have entertained generations of fans with Abbott playing a bullying straight man to Costello's childlike buffoon. This 2 DVD Collector's Tin has two of Abbott and Costello's most beloved and side-splitting comedies, "Africa Screams" and "Jack and the Beanstalk". In "Africa Screams", Bud and Lou play a hapless duo, Buzz and Stanley, who are abducted and taken on a search for diamonds in Africa. Along the way, they meet a visually impaired gunner, a hungry lion and a tribe of cannibals, who have their eyes on Stanley for tribal stew! Also starring Max Baer as Grappler McCoy, Shemp Howard (The Three Stooges) as Gunner, Hillary Brooke and Clyde Beatty. "Jack and the Beanstalk" is Abbott & Costello's version of the famous fairy tale, about a young boy who trades the family cow for magic beans. Also included in the set are three episodes of The Colgate Comedy Hour with Abbott and Costello hosting a bevy of stars, including Victor Borge, Charles Laughton and Monique Van Vooren, and a very special "This Is Your Life", celebrating the life of Lou Costello.
