Africa Screams 1949 Bud Abbott and Lou Costello Blu-Ray LIMITED EDITION:

Africa Screams (Special Limited Edition)

Africa Screams looks stunning in this new 4K restoration from original 35mm nitrate film elements!

During the 1940s, the comedy team of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello were among Universal's top moneymakers, and, by the end of the decade, were allowed to make one independent film per year. Hot off the success of Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, Bud and Lou teamed up with independent producer Edward Nassour to release Africa Screams--a hilarious jungle romp where the boys hightail it to the dark continent and encounter wild beasts, dangerous natives, and... an affectionate gorilla!

Department store clerks Buzz Johnson and Stanley Livington (Bud and Lou) are hired by treasure hunter Diana Emerson (Hillary Brooke, The Abbott and Costello Show) for an African expedition when it is believed Stanley has memorized a map that will lead her to a rare orangutan. It's all a cover, of course, as Diana is really after a secret trove of diamonds and is counting on Stanley's memory to guide her to the treasure.

Charles Barton directs Africa Screams which features an array of supporting players: real-life big-game hunter Frank ' 'Bring 'em back alive ' ' Buck, real-life circus owner/animal trainer Clyde Beatty, Shemp Howard, Joe Besser, as well as heavyweight boxing brothers Buddy and Max Baer.
