Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein

Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein Brief Information

Bud Abbott and Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein (the film's poster title), or Bud Abbott Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein (the onscreen title)"?usually referred to as simply Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein"?is a 1948 American horror comedy film directed by Charles Barton and starring the comedy team of Abbott and Costello.

The picture is the first of several films in which the comedy duo meets classic characters from Universal's horror film stable. In this film, they encounter Count Dracula (Bela Lugosi), Frankenstein's monster (Glenn Strange), and the Wolf Man (Lon Chaney, Jr.). Subsequent films pair the duo with Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and the Mummy. (The comedians interacted with the last of the Universal Studios monsters, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, on live TV on the Colgate Comedy Hour in 1954.) This film is considered the swan song for the "Big Three" Universal horror monsters, none of whom had appeared in a Universal film since 1945's House of Dracula.
