Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein

Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein- 1948, starring Bud Abbott, Lou Costello, Lon Chaney Jr., and Bela Lugosi
Leonard says- Dracula plans to put Lou's brain in Frankenstein's monster; werewolf Larry Talbot has his paws full convincing the boys they're in danger.  All-time great horror-comedy still works beautifully, mainly because the monsters play it straight.  Yes, that is Vincent Price's voice at the end.  3 and a half stars.

I say- the best of the Abbott and Costello movies.  Works well, but still is rather dated.  Bela Lugosi  still remains the true Dracula. 3 stars.
