Abbott and Costello On DVDUp until this year only a few Abbott and Costello films were on DVD. The films were only giving basic release with no bonus features, save for Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein which got the deluxe treatment. Finally this year Universal Studios is releasing all of Abbott and Costello's films onto DVD. The set is called The Best of Abbott and Costello and will be released over the year in 4 volumes. Vol. 1 and 2 each have 8 films on two dvds with theatrical trailers and production notes. Each film has been giving a beautiful transfer and they have never looked better. The films look so good they literally pop off the screen. The packaging is also great and features great cover art and photos of Bud and Lou. The best part of all is that they retail for only $25.00! Most likely you can find it online or in the stores for less than twenty dollars. 8 classic films for 20 bucks is an incredible deal.
