Double the fun

Abbott & Costello collection to be won

This year marks the 70th anniversary of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello’s enduring comedy partnership.

To commemorate this, Universal have this week released an Abbott and Costello DVD box set.

The 13-disc Definitive Collection contains 24 films and one bonus documentary disc, and sells for £149.99

However we have one set to give away to one lucky reader.

The set includes such classics as Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, In the Navy and Buck Privates, their breakthrough movie.Many of the double-film discs in the set is also available separately, priced £15.99

Bud Abbott - the tall thin straight one -  and Lou Costello - the short fat clownish one - officially got together in 1936, and after achieving huge success with their radio sketches, they moved on to films in 1940. The simple, farcical formula of their films made them the biggest box office success of the early Forties.

To  stand a chance of winning their best work, just answer the following question by September 11, when we will select the winner from all the correct answers displayed. Please note that bulk entrants from mailing services will be disqualified.

Good luck!
