Africa Screams
The laughs are wild when Abbott and Costello go on safari! Bud and Lou are a pair of mild-mannered bookworms who pose as big game hunters and travel deep into the African jungle in search of a rare gorilla. But whats really at stake is a secret diamond mine. Along the way theyll tangle with lions, cannibals, criminals, and, of course, wild apes! Their accomplices include the lovely Hillary Brooke (who later appeared on their TV series) and Three Stooges co-horts Shemp Howard and Joe Besser. Plus, cameos from real-life lion-tamer Clyde Beatty and big-game tracker Frank Buck.
