    Loved the restoration work on Africa Screams and I’m sure this will be the same high quality. Count me in on the Kickstarter.

    Nice to hear you on Gilbert Godfried's Amazing Colossal Podcast, Bob!

    Gilbert Gottfried's Amazing Colossal Podcast

    For those who haven't heard it, be sure to give it a listen.

    Gilbert's podcast is a recommendation in itself. It covers a lot of old Hollywood and also features interesting musical guests from time to time. I think a lot of people on this forum would appreciate it.

    Definitely sounded like it. I'm not a huge Abbott and Costello fan but it triggered me to watch the give or take 10 movies of them that I do have.

    One of the many interesting things said in the podcast was how Leonard Maltin said he wrote a play on the Who's on first routine using band names. I immediately wondered if this was the inspiration for the Animanics bit that used (the) Who, the Band and Yes:

    I am delighted to announce that Chris Costello - Lou's youngest daughter - will be recording a special introduction to JACK AND THE BEANSTALK for our 70th anniversary restoration DVD and Blu-ray release from ClassicFlix.

    Chris has very fond memories of this film and we are truly honored to have her participation on this project!
