Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, 1948
Original lobby card
Starring Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney and Glenn Strange
This has been our favorite A&C Meet Frankenstein lobby card of all time. In the last 20 years of collecting A&C Memorabilia this is only the second we have acquired. The last one was about two years ago, which sold relatively fast. This particular lobby card is a real beauty and fantasic scene with Lon Chaney as the Wolfman sizing up his prey Lou Costello. Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (Universal International, 1948). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). Although Lou Costello found the script insulting and Universal execs had to be shamed into using Lugosi for Dracula (they wanted Ian Keith, for some strange reason), what finally emerged is one of the best horror comedies ever filmed, and certainly one of the greatest in the Abbott & Costello series. Bud and Lou meet Dracula, the Wolfman, and the Frankenstein creature in this raucous monster mash directed by Charles Barton, who helmed all of the best A&C movies. There are no bad cards in the A&C M.F. lobby set, but this is certainly one of our very favorites, as Lou narrowly escapes the razor-sharp talons of the Wolfman.
