Jack and The Beanstalk (1952) - In this colorfully comic retelling of the fairy tale, Lou trades the family cow for some of Bud's magic beans and winds up encountering a talking harp, a goose that lays golden eggs, and a fearsome giant (prizefighter Buddy Baer) who lives in a castle atop the fabled beanstalk.
