This upcoming weekend, fellow fans of vintage Universal Studios monster films and classic comedy will be in for a real treat (of horror and hilarity)!
Svengoolie Presents: “Bud Abbott & Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein” (1948)
Featuring the legendary comedic team of Bud Abbott (as Chick Young) and Lou Costello (as Wilbur Grey), the duo’s encounter with the Universal monsters include Glenn Strange as Frankenstein’s monster, Bela Lugosi (in his second and last portrayal) as Count Dracula and Lon Chaney Jr. as Lawrence Talbot/The “Wolf Man.”
This was the first of several features that Bud Abbott and Lou Costello made as a cross-over with the iconic Universal monsters. Other tie-in films included “Abbott and Costello Meet The Invisible Man” in 1951 and “Abbott and Costello Meet The Mummy” in 1955, which was the duo’s final feature film for Universal.
