Great product, great price.
I've enjoyed the antics of Bud and Lou all my life. This is a great collection of some of their funniest movies. I would recommend these movies for anyone who wants a good laugh.

Abbott & Costello were genius. This is humor at its best. A must have for all ages, the only rating is "the best" of comedy.

Abbott and Costello's best films in one set.
If you are a fan of William Alexander Abbott and Louis Francis Cristillo or just mildly interested in finding out about this successful comedy team of the 1940's, this is the set to buy. It contains their first and best films. Good supporting players didn't hurt either. In these 8 films they worked with such performers as Nat Pendleton, Dick Powell, the Andrews Sisters, Joan Davis, William Frawley, Lionel Atwill, William Demarest, and 2 of the best-Martha Raye and Shemp Howard. The liner notes are a little misleading, though. It says they became a team in 1931. Not true. Their teaming didn't occur until 1935 or 1936. I also can't agree that they were "undeniably the most popular comedy team of all time!". In my opinion, that honor goes to Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. But this set is still worth buying and watching.Read full review

Best of Abbott and Costello
I Really Enjoy Watching the Comedy Teams of our Earlier Era. They
had the Ability to Create Humor just by the Way They Protrayed the
Characters that They Created. I can relieve a Lot of Stress just
by letting Myself Sit Back and let Their Shows take Me to another
Place for a While. Also the Innocence of Their Generation is very
Appealing to Me at this Point in My Life. It would have been Nice
if People had stayed more like these Earlier Times when Care for
Others was Genuine and a Handshake was all You needed to Seal a
Deal. I envy the way Families were Protrayed and everyone was
Respectful of Each Other. A Lot can be Learned from these Shows.
