Alex Film Society Presents

Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein

  • This event has passed.

Bud Abbott and Lou Costello join forces with Universal’s menagerie of famous monsters in ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN – a perfect blending of classic comedy and terror. The boys were never funnier, combining verbal routines with their best slapstick gags. A top-notch supporting cast plays it absolutely straight, with Bela Lugosi as Dracula for only the second time, Lon Chaney Jr. making his full moon change into The Wolf Man, and Glenn Strange stalking the boys as Frankenstein’s Monster. Even Vincent Price gets a cameo as The Invisible man. This top grosser for Universal still holds all its charm.

Cartoon: Walt Disney’s The Skeleton Dance (1929)
Special Guests:
2:00 pm – Lou Costello’s daughters: Chris Costello & Paddy (Costello) Humphreys
8:00 pm – Bela Lugosi, Jr.
