Africa Screams

Africa Screams-  1949, Directed by Charles Barton, Starring Bud Abbott, Lou Costello, Shemp Howard, and Joe Besser
He says-  A&C go on safari in this funny outing full of wheezy but often hilarious gags and routines.  Also shown in computer-colored version.  3 stars

I say--Dear God, I thought I was done with Abbott and Costello!  UGH!  AND HOLY FUCK LOOK AT THE POSTER AND THE INCREDIBLY RACIST TRIBESMAN COOKING ABBOTT AND COSTELLO IN THE POSTER!!!!!!!  That's not cool at all.  But it was a different time, so I guess that's the only excuse they have.  This movie was hard to watch.  Not that it was bad, but the transfer was so awful that it was painful to watch.  A couple funny gags.  Not the worst Abbott and Costello movie.  1 and a half stars
