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.
