5.0 out of 5 stars THE FRANCHISE COLLECTION INDEED ! Aug. 9 2004
By The Critic TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I read on the official Abbott & Costello website that a computer graphic animated short is being produced for a possible volume four. Finally Abbott & Costello will meet all the Universal monsters in the same short; I definitely can't wait to see it. Abbott & Costello volume 3 is fantastic and Universal Pictures have to be commended for their efforts on this DVD release.

The picture is clear and the sound is very good considering the age of the original prints. Although I'm not a fan of double sided discs, they do keep the costs down making this set very affordable for fans. With 8 more movies for under $25 how can you possibly go wrong? I think some Abbott & Costello movies go together better than others, maybe theme sets would have been a better idea.

As an Abbott and Costello fan I'll definitely take what I can get and at these prices I want them all. Volume 3 provides just as many laughs if not more than volumes 1 & 2 for fans. Whether you're a long time Abbott & Costello fan or just discovering them for the first time, these movies definitely won't disappoint. I hope that volume four is really in the works so I can collect the rest of their movies.

Volume 3: Includes the following 8 movies

Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein
Mexican Hayride
Abbott and Costello Meet the Killer, Boris Karloff
Abbott and Costello in the Foreign Legion
Abbott and Costello Meet the Invisible Man
Comin' Round the Mountain
Lost in Alaska
Abbott and Costello Go to Mars

4.0 out of 5 stars Pure fun and enjoyable schlock Aug. 6 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Several of these films were made as the boys entered the downward cycle of their careers. The eight films therefore are not always the "best" but still give roars of laughter. This box set includes the better of the efforts to milk the 'cash cow' of Universal's 1930s horror genre. Once the boys got through with them, the Universal series were dead until disinterred at the turn of the century with the remake of "The Mummy." Fortunately, Hammer Studios filled the gap with a new generation of innovative offerings. In this box set, "Meet Frankenstein" remains one of the grandest efforts by the boys, and it is paired with "Meet the Killer" and "Meet the Invisible Man." "Goes to Mars" is so 1950s politically-incorrect that I found it a riot; the film unintentionally shows how much values about the sexes have changed and therin lies much of its worth. Nice prints of the films. And the price cannot be beat. Amazon listed "Meet Frankenstein" at US$22 or C$27 for a single DVD during July 2004. Here you get EIGHT films for less. Wish we had more box sets at this realistic pricing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worthy of More Than 5 Stars... May 26 2004
Format:DVD
I just can't get enough of Abbott and Costello!
I waited for quite a few years for ANY Abbott and Costello movies to hit DVD. There were very few in print. It was frustrating.
Well, the wait paid off big time. The first two sets were incredible. Universal has gone the extra mile and these sets are winners on so many levels.
Each set thus far includes 8 HIGH QUALITY films for under $20!
When I say HIGH QUALITY, I'm not just talking about the quality of the prints, which is very high, but the movies themselves are not lost turkeys. These are the truly all classics, and this set includes some of the great Universal Monster tie-ins, which were previously sold individually for more than the price of this set of 8!
Based upon the track record for classic movies going out of print, I suggest you buy them while they are still in this format.

5.0 out of 5 stars keep em coming! May 25 2004
Format:DVD
This is what offering a great value is all about! I've got vol. 1 & 2 already and this one on order. This will be one of my favs for sure! 8 movies, fantastic quality, all for under $20!!! Man, the CD music industry needs to stand up and take notice of what's happening in the DVD industry. This is one of many great collections that have/are coming out. The Universal Monsters, The Marx Brothers, Don Knotts and several other collections all reasonably priced. You can't even rent movies this cheap. Vol 1 & 2 of this series are stellar for quality and the packaging is top notch and very convenient, they take up very little space in a storage unit. I'm not sure how many movies are left to release after this but if there's enough to do another vol 4 please do so! Thanks a million Universal Studios!

5.0 out of 5 stars This DVD collection is a must - for any A&C Fans May 27 2004
Format:DVD
I remember growing up watching old Abbott and Costello movies on Sunday afternoons with my Dad (along with the classic monster movies and the old Blondie shows). Buying these DVD's is like reliving great memories from my youth. The picture quality on these DVD's is outstanding - they are very well done. This third volume in this series is going to be the best of them all - this DVD will have some of my all time favorite A&C movies. I have watched the first two volumes numerous times since purchasing them and look forward to this next volume with great anticipation.
