Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948) on IMDb


Two baggage handlers deliver the supposed actual remains of Frankenstein and Dracula to a wax museum so that an entrepreneur can show them off to his customers. They don’t realize Dracula and Frankenstein’s monster are actually alive.


I can’t say enough about this movie. It’s hilarious. In my opinion, this is the very best Abbott and Costello movie that was ever made. The great thing about this is that they were able to get several of the classic horror actors to reprise their parts in this movie. Lugosi, Strange and Cheney Jr. are so good in their roles, taking their parts just seriously enough to make it work as a outstanding horror/comedy.
