ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN TRAILER...
As related in a previous post, I had to wait around
12 or 13 years to finally see this movie. It was due to
be screened one Saturday morning on BBC TV back in
1973 or '74, but I had a part-time job in a CO-OP store
in another neighbourhood and, despite the temptation
to 'throw a sickie', chose to show up for work.
So, practically half my life down the line, I finally
got to see it on TV one night and immensely enjoyed it -
despite DRACULA's reflection being visible in a mirror
and one of The MONSTER's electrodes being almost
pulled off as he rises from a table he's on. (It's attached
to a clamp and starts to pull away as he gets up .)
Still, despite those minor faults, it's a great little
film - and GLENN STRANGE gets far more screen
time (and more to do) than his previous two outings as
Doctor FRANKENSTEIN's creation. The film was
originally shot in black and white but this trailer has
been colourized - enjoy! Comments welcome.
