To celebrate the anniversary, and the centenary of Lou Costellos birth, Universal Pictures are releasing The Abbott and Costello Collection Box Set which includes all time classics such as Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein, In the Navy and Buck Privates.r r Bud Abbott (the tall thin straight one) and Lou Costello (the short fat clownish one) officially got together in 1936, and after achieving huge success with their radio sketches, they moved on to films in 1940 when they were signed by Universal Studios and appeared in support roles in A Night in the Tropics.r r The hugely successful Buck Pirates was their breakthrough film in 1941 and it was from this point that they began to be seen as Americas favourite comedy team and by the end of 1945 they had starred in 15 movies. The simple, farcical formula of their films was a winning combination as Abbott and Costello became the biggest box office success of the early 40s.r r This box set houses some of Abbott and Costellos most celebrated comedy masterpieces, featuring 25 films spread over 13 discs!r r Films Comprise:r r 1.
