Jack and the Beanstalk is a 1952 American family comedy film starring the comedy team of Abbott and Costello and featuring Buddy Baer, Dorothy Ford and Barbara Brown. It is a comic retelling of the "Jack and the Beanstalk" fairy tale, produced by Abbott and Costello and distributed by Warner Bros.

Since Universal-International would not spend the money to make an Abbott and Costello film in color, the duo decided to produce color films themselves. Utilizing a clause in their contract with Universal that allowed the team to make one independent film per year, Costello's company, Exclusive Productions, shot this film in 1951 and Abbott's company, Woodley Productions, made a second color film, Abbott and Costello Meet Captain Kidd in 1952. Warner Bros. distributed both films but did not provide financing or production services.

Jack and the Beanstalk was filmed from July 9 through August 2, 1951 at Hal Roach Studios on sets from Joan of Arc (1948). Like The Wizard of Oz, the film's opening and closing segments were presented in sepia tone – although many of the DVD releases present these sequences in black and white – while the entire "Jack and the Beanstalk" story was filmed in Eastmancolor and presented in the SuperCineColor process (Eastmancolor in subsequent releases). Many television stations that aired the film normally transmitted black-and-white shows and movies with color equipment turned off, so they ran the sepia tone openings and closings in black and white while running the color portion in color. Animation is used to show the beanstalk growing in Jack's backyard.

Starring Bud Abbott, Lou Costello, Buddy Baer, and Shaye Cogan. Directed by Jean Yarbrough. An unrestored poster with good color and an overall very presentable appearance. It may have light edge and fold wear, tears, pinholes, toning, or noticeable stains.
