Africa Screams

Africa Screams
Abbott & Costello perform at full strength in this very good, very silly jungle safari comedy. It’s definitely for kids and nostalgic fans — with equal parts slapstick, cornball repetitive vaudeville gags, and Lou Costello’s weirdly endearing infantile schtick. An impressively beautiful restoration has pulled it back from the pit of Public Domain ugliness. Plus ClassicFlix & the 3-D Archive appoint this 2-D movie with a tall stack of creative, relevant extras.

Diplo on His New Nashville Album: ‘I’m Not Trying to Make Meme Country’
Diplo has built an impressive résumé with his uncanny ability to look ahead and highlight scenes from around the globe that are about to break open, ushering them into the mainstream. But for his latest project, the 41-year-old producer-dj-musician looked backward to his childhood in the South as a kid who grew up absorbing hip-hop, dance music, and country music in large quantities.

California Toughens Sexual Harassment Laws, Launches Gender Parity Push for Corporate Boards
