one of the funniest movies ever made

on 1/2/2013

I have just recieved Abbott and Costello meets Frankenstein and it is better watching it on DVD than on video, this is because of better sound and picture quality and to see a couple of very rare outtakes and the cometary was very interesting and informative about the actors and actress of it and of course the director. the interviews with daughter of Lou was also very interesting as well as the other people in the documentary.

Little family gratitude

on 3/28/2013

this is a movie you simply cannot pass up. I highly recommend this movie because not only is it excellent, Abbott & Costello are always winners. As usual, Abbott is sarcastic & Costello is lovable & charming. This film also has some great trivia, whole family can enjoy.

Editors Note
Note Bud Abbott and Lou Costello's "grand unifying monster" film and the first in their "Meet..." series, with the two bungling buddies as baggage handlers saddled with the ghoulish remains of Dracula (Bela Lugosi) and Frankenstein's monster (Glenn Strange). But once they arrive at their cargo's destination, a wax museum, the monsters revolt, with plans to purloin and transplant Lou's brain. The Monster is growing weak and his master Dracula has devised the perfect plan to restore his virility. The fat man takes the bait, which is in the shape of a woman. Director Charles Barton easily guides this ambitious effort which is chaotically comic throughout, despite an off-camera foot injury that confined Glenn Strange to a cast and prompted Bela Lugosi to fill in for him in one scene. This was last screen appearance of Universal's Frankenstein Monster, which had been introduced by Boris Karloff. The result is an unforgettable and unique combination of humor and horror.

Total Film "...The first and best of the duo's comedy chillers keeps to the spirit of the Universal horror series of the '30s and '40s while delivering its fair share of still-amusing one-liners..." 09/01/2000 p.114
