"Jack & The Beanstalk" with Abbott And Costello DVD. In 1952, the comedy team of Abbott and Costello entered into a joint agreement with producer Alex Gottlieb and Warner Brothers for the production of two musical comedies in colour. Abbott and Costello Jack and the Beanstalk dvd

Through this agreement, Bud Abbott and Lou Costello would be producer-owner of one film apiece. Costello's contribution to this agreement was Jack and the Beanstalk, a kiddie-matinee adaptation of the famed fairytale. Constructed along the lines of The Wizard of Oz, the film begins in black and white. Jack (Costello) is a professional baby-sitter, while Dink (Abbott) is Jack's "agent." After a run-in with a gargantuan cop (Buddy Baer) and a statuesque waitress (Dorothy Ford), Jack and Dink show up at the home of Eloise Larkin (Shaye Cogan), to look after Eloise's troublesome nephew Donald (David Stollery). While reading the story of Jack and the Beanstalk to little Donald, Jack falls asleep, and begins dreaming that he is the impoverished boy sent out to sell the family cow. While en route to town with his cow, he encounters a shady butcher (Abbott) who cons him out of the old beast for the price of just a few 'magic' beans. In keeping with the traditional tale, Jack plants the beans and from them a magnificent vine grows which reaches into the clouds. Along with the butcher, Jack climbs into a fantastic world inhabited by a terrifying giant (Baer) and other magical creatures, including a hen which lays golden eggs, a singing harp, and a distressed prince and princess.
