Description

    Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (Universal, R-1956). Insert (14" X 36"). The creepers are after Bud Abbott and Lou Costello in this who's who of terrific ghouls! By the time this picture was made, the careers of Abbott and Costello, one of the greatest comedy teams to ever work in motion pictures, were beginning to slump. At the same time, the monster series at Universal was starting to slide as well. A brilliant move on the studio's part was to cast their beloved monsters with their popular comedians in this hilarious spoof! Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney Jr., Glenn Strange, and the voice of Vincent Price were the foils for the famous duo. This insert has been professionally paper backed and restored for small amounts of paper loss on the corners and at the top and bottom borders, fold lines and a couple of small scratches. Many collectors consider the artwork on this reissue to be superior to the original. Very Fine- on Paper.
