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!
i just watched it last night. i forgot all of the underlying remarks that were made.. it was so great to see it again!. i smiled when you mentioned million dollar movie and seeing these films. i was there myself. thank you for that <3

Man’s Castle 1933

Embarrassed to say but I just watched Frank Borzage’s Man’s Castle for the first time this week. Wow, what a movie! Spencer Tracy and Loretta Young are both excellent but the way the movie plows headlong into the plight of desperate people during the despression is remarkable. There are some obvious hard cuts in the movie […]

How’s It Going, Everybody?

Every now and then I stop back in to look at some of the updated comments and I’m surprised, and gladdened, to see that there still are comments! Now, I no longer get paid to post here so this is just a “Hi, how are you?” to everyone who still comments here (so don’t freak […]
