The Story: The 1941 comedy that made Abbott and Costello a bonafide box office draw is now available on Blu-ray as part of Universal Studios 100th Anniversary celebration. The smart-mouthed duo play sidewalk peddlers who unwittingly enlist for the service at an Army Recruitment Center; of course, comedy and outrageous hijinks ensue once boot camp starts and they discover that the lawman that was chasing them is their drill sergeant! The film also features the famous Andrews Sisters, who introduced their classic tune Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy in the movie.

Notable Special Features: A 40-page Blu-ray booklet featuring an appreciation from director John Landis, rare movie memorabilia and photographs, and classic routine scripts; three 100 Years of Universal featurettes: "Restoring the Classics," "The Carl Laemmle Era" and "Unforgettable Characters"; plus "Abbott and Costello Meet Jerry Seinfeld" feature.
