What else needs to be said about one of the greatest Universal Horror classics that brought together Bela Lugosi and Lon Chaney in their immortal roles as "Dracula" and the "Wolfman". And, Glenn Strange as "Frankenstein". As a matter of fact, it was the ONLY movie to ever bring the three most famous monsters together. 

Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (Universal International, 1948). Original Script Synopsis.
By 1948, it was apparent that the Universal horror franchise was running out of steam, so the studio sent its iconic creatures out in high style with this comedy monster mash, largely considered the end of the Golden Age of Horror. All the great bogeymen of yesteryear are here: Dracula, the Wolfman, Frankenstein, and even, briefly, the Invisible Man, all pitted against the hapless duo of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello.  The result is movie magic, especially the performance of Bela Lugosi as Count Dracula, seen by many as his last great role before sliding into the tragic final phase of his life.
Lugosi, as well as Lon Chaney Jr. as Larry Talbot/the Wolfman and Glenn Strange as the Monster, are all in fine form here, scaring the whimwhams out of poor Lou. As part of the Universal Horror series, paper from this picture is extremely desirable.

In 1948, two of Universal's big breadwinners -- the monster series and comedy duo Bud Abbott and Lou Costello -- could not halt a box-office and critical slump. But Universal decided to combine these disparate parts, and the "Abbott and Costello Meet the Monsters" franchise was born. Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney Jr. and Glenn Strange all signed on to reprise their famous horror roles, and even Boris Karloff did publicity for the film. It became the studio's second-highest grosser of the year and endures as a beloved fan favorite. A perennial popular item for collectors  
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, Glenn Strange, and the voice of Vincent Price were the foils for the famous duo.

As part of the Universal Horror series, paper from this picture is extremely desirable.  A script Synopsis is virtually non existent !
