    Has it sold out? The posted link to buy does not seem to work.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Bob.

    Unfortunately that site's another one of those frustratingly US-only ones, and there appears to be no way that I can order from and deliver to Canada. (I will use their contact form to see if there's a workaround.)

    I'll make a note to check for other sources, new and used, in future and hopefully I can snag a copy.

    Jeff

    ps. I'm a big A&C fan and have copies of all of their movies. I bought a copy of your book when it first came out. It's a terrific, informative, and highly entertaining read!

    Today is Bud Abbott's birthday and I want to announce a very exciting project.

    Production began on July 9, 1951 at the Hal Roach Studios on Bud and Lou's first color feature film. To commemorate the 70th anniversary, I am thrilled to announce a deluxe 70th anniversary restoration of JACK AND THE BEANSTALK!

    You will once again have an opportunity to help us with certain aspects of this restoration and more details will be announced very soon. We've already begun work on scanning 35mm archival materials, including the only surviving 35mm color camera negative footage!

    [​IMG]

    This deluxe Blu-ray and DVD will be released next summer by ClassicFlix and will be loaded with outstanding bonus features. We already have A&C expert Ron Palumbo on board to provide another fascinating commentary track. Rest assured, this will truly be THE definitive restoration of the first color Abbott and Costello film.

    Fear nothing; if you liked our work on AFRICA SCREAMS, you're going to love our restoration of JACK AND THE BEANSTALK!

    If we can sell just three more Blu-ray's, the extremely rare original 1940 trailer for TROPICS - with the text overlays - will be included on the BEANSTALK disc!

    JACK AND THE BEANSTALK was inspired by Lou's two year old daughter, Chris Costello. While reading the classic story to her, Lou felt the timeless tale would make a delightful vehicle for Abbott and Costello's many young fans.

    Generations have now grown up enjoying this classic film and we are SO happy that you are helping us to restore and preserve it for future generations. Please continue to share the news about this campaign so that more people will have an opportunity to contribute and see their name on-screen in the Restoration credits.

    Thank you!
