This print of Jack and the Beanstalk on Goodtimes DVD is excellent. I think it's the best public domain DVD of this title available. I picked it up for one dollar plus shipping and that was a real bargain. The movie starts in a nice sepia tone as released and then changes to color, a obvious attempt to recoup the magic of The Wizard of Oz. The story is fun and Abbott and Costello are up to their usual tricks. A fun romp for the entire family. Nothing her to embarass anyone. Good clean family fare. The color on this DVD is nice also. It's not technicolor, it's Cinecolor. The colors are just a tad softer than Technicolor, just as it was released. It works nicely for this little fairy tale.
All Of their movies are great !! Happy go lucky type of film. Good old fashioned comedy - not the raw garbage they call comedy today.
It's hard to believe Abbott and Costello were box office stars in the 1950's. This movie is a second rate Wizard of Oz. Watch Abbott & Costello meet Frankenstein, their best movie by far. Humour has changed so much in the past 50 years. Slapstick died with the 3 Stooges.
Good movie from childhood...fun...transfer ok but seems source material is missing frames in places so there is some jerky movement in a few spots. Overall good though.
wonderful classic movie. Remember it as a child and will share with the grandkids. Am sure they will enjoy it too
