Subject:        Jack and Beanstalk R and J / Pete and Tillie Sonnets

In the film comedy Pete 'n' Tillie, Pete (Walter Matthau) is playing for
his stepson an LP  of Abbot and Costello's "Who's on first?" routine and
Tillie (Carol Burnett) interrupts him.  Pete maintains that the routine
is literature, as great as "the Song of Solomon and the sonnets of
Shakespeare."  http://us.imdb.com/Title?0069080

CBS aired a new 2 part movie on Sunday, Dec. 2 and Tuesday Dec. 4 called
Jack and the Beanstalk: The Real Story. At the end of the second part of
the movie, one of the giants mentions wanting to read Romeo and Juliet
and the librarian goes to reach for The Works of Shakespeare.
