DVD & Blu-ray: THE ABBOTT AND COSTELLO SHOW Season 1

DVD & Blu-ray: THE ABBOTT AND COSTELLO SHOW Season 1

Product Description: One of the most influential comedies in television history, The Abbott and Costello Show - Season 1 never looked so good as ClassicFlix presents all 26 stunningly sharp Season 1 episodes in this 4 disc set. When Bud Abbott and Lou Costello became part of the permanent rotating group of weekly hosts on TV's The Colgate Comedy Hour, it revitalized their careers and led to the birth of The Abbott and Costello Show, a syndicated half-hour program that premiered in 1952. The premise of the show was disarmingly simple: Bud and Lou played themselves, a pair of unemployed actors living in a rooming house run by the apoplectic Sid Fields, also playing himself. Easing their way through life in a neighborhood where crooks and sharpies lay in wait around every corner, and women walk right up to Costello for no other reason than to slap his face ("How dare you look like someone I hate!”), Bud and Lou keep the show fresh with new routines, but also perform many of their classics, including "Who's on First?", "Dice", "7 x 13 = 28" and so many, many more. Newly remastered and restored by the 3-D Film Archive, in cooperation with the Library of Congress, from the original 35mm camera negatives and fine grains, The Abbott and Costello Show features Hillary Brooke (as Lou's cultured girlfriend), Gordon Jones (as stupefyingly dumb "Mike the Cop"), Joe Besser (as "Stinky"), Joe Kirk (as "Mr. Bacciagalupe") and Bingo the Chimp, as well as many other well-known TV and film entertainers.
