The Golden Age of Hollywood

This is one of the most popular of Abbott and Costello's films. The boys are employed by a shipping company, and receive some very large crates that must be delivered to the local wax museum. The contents of the crates are Dracula's coffin with Drac snoozing inside, and the body of the Frankenstein Monster.
Through a series of mishaps, Bud and Lou meet Dracula and the monster, as well as the wolfman and a lovely lady scientist who is in cahoots with the dapper bloodsucker.
Lots of great laughs and wild slapstick fill this hilarious flick.

I love this movie. It's the greatest of all A&C films.

The gentleman standing in the center of this photo (with myself and actress Diane McBain) is Robert Lees, who co-wrote the movie. He was murdered (beheaded) by some crazy guy a few years ago in Hollywood.

A & C Meet Frank along with Ghost of Frank and Frank Meets the Wolfman..are the first Frankenstein movies I remember seeing in New Jersey in '63 on new yorks million dollar movie....The cartoon opening sequence still lingers in my mind from that time and is still one of my fave movie intros!..
Its a movie I never tire of..and one of the only few of A& C's that really make me laugh out loud...

I love this one too - and had the privilege of seeing it on the big screen last year around Halloween - thanks for all the great photos!

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
