Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein
DIRECTOR: CHARLES BARTON
CAST: BUD ABBOTT, LOU COSTELLO, BELA LUGOSI, LON CHANEY JR., GLENN STRANGE
The classic horror movie parody, this scarily side-splitting vehicle for Bud Abbott and Lou Costello casts the legendary comedy duo as baggage clerks who receive strange cargo bound for a Florida wax museum: boxes containing the bodies of Dracula and Frankenstein’s monster. The Wolf Man and the Invisible Man also make guest appearances in this mega monster mash, which costars Bela Lugosi and Lon Chaney Jr., both very game. Preserved by the Library of Congress.
Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein is screening as part of the Playtime: Family Matinee series.
