Synopsis

Collection of comedy films. In 'Jack and the Beanstalk' (1952), Abbott and Costello take on a babysitting job. Jack (Abbott) starts reading the famous legend to his charge, Donald, but stumbles over the big words. When Donald takes over, Jack falls asleep, and is transported to a magical world, in which he is the story's vine-clambering protagonist. In 'Utopia' (1951), Laurel and Hardy's last film together, the pair inherit a desert island which proves to be rich in uranium; a fact that attracts the attention of some local crooks. Also included are the Buster Keaton shorts 'Our Hospitality' (1923), and 'Sherlock Jr.' (1924).
