Were any Abbott and Costello full features released
on 8mm? Not the pd stuff like Jack and the Beanstalk, etc..
but titles like "A&C Meet Frankenstein, Ride Em' Cowboy, Lost in Alaska, Comin' Round the Mountain, etc..?

Classic had some prints of "Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein" a few years back, these were F/L and I believe they came from Germany, but not sure. He may still be able to get hold of prints of this title, but it would be a new print, and new print prices, if you know what I mean!

"A&C meet Captain Kidd", released by Portland Films (or so the label on my print says).

JEF FILMS in Osteville, Massachusetts offered "Meet Frankenstein" in full-length back in the early 80's along with several other Universal Monster classics in full-length. The prints I hear were not bad and were made from 35mm sources.
