Time for a new 16A category, perhaps?

Just wondering if there were any Abbott and Costello fans out there. For me they were a very underrated double act.

I loved most of their films but my favourite is Meet Frankenstein, although Meet Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and Hold That Ghost are brilliant as well.

I don't remember much, but when I was about 8 or 9 I watched a few episodes on VHS and I found it was really funny.

I will go as far as saying they were better than Laurel and Hardy.

Underrated indeed.

I really liked them any time they were on TV and I have just bought a boxset, for 10 from HMV, of 8 of their films and will be watching them over the next couple of weeks.
First one on the agenda for me is 'Meet the Invisible Man'

Yeah that's a great one as well, think I have about 20 of their films.

Another fan here! My Dad always watched them as opposed to L&H so consequently I was brought up watching them. I also have the box sets and Hold that Ghost is my favourite.

Yeah Hold That Ghost is a brilliant film, I always preferred their films with a horror theme.

Love them.I started that thread on here a few week back and it got mostly positive responses.A couple of posters even said they were going to check out some of their films again which was good.


My favourites are

Time Of Their Lives
Who Done It
Buck Privates Come Home
Meet Frankenstein
Meet The Killer
Meet The Invisble Man

You have GOT to check out Who's on First - simply one of the funniest routines in the history of comedy.

No they weren't, and I say that as a fan of Bud and Lou.

A long career from just one good 8 minute routine.

I have a soft spot for them but, the films were just formulaic, crass and dumb.

Not fit to lick the undergarments of L&H .
