Something wrong with it? That was a very nice price and if it's color, I'd like to have that (Own the DVD, but just not the same)

Africa Screams was shot in black & white. It was later colorized for a video release. The only A&C color films are Jack & the Beanstalk and A&C Meet Captain Kidd. Color prints of those were put out in Super 8mm by Viacom.
I've gotten quite a few 16mm Abbott & Costello TV shows from Bob. They were in very nice condition.

Ah, okay ... Even better, because I hated the colors on the DVD
But I am almost sure it says something color at the start of my B&W Meets Captain Kidd ... Will check that later

A&C Meet Captain Kidd was originally shot in color (Cinecolor?)
Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on March 23, 2014, 07:28 PM:
Yes, those colorized DVDs have an unreal look about them. As John said, those two A&C features were shot in the Cinecolor process for Warner Brothers.
Now back to Bob's sale!
