Bob Hope & Jerry Lewis Meet Frankenstein

My Halloween plans include mmmmmm, candy -- and a return visit with the frenetic 1948 comedy "Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein," or as the official title reads in the film, "Bud Abbott Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein."

It is interesting to note, like Bud and Lou, other major movie comedians of the mid-20th century encountered the Frankenstein monster and his ghoul fiends, Wolfman and Dracula (or reasonable unreasonable facsimiles). One of Bob Hope's adventures came in 1967, following a Jerry Lewis tangle in 1964.

As I mentioned in my recently updated article, "Top 10 Scary Movie Comedies," Bob and Jerry had previously romped through somewhat identical haunts. There's Hope's spooky flick "The Ghost Breakers" (1940), remade with Jerry and Dean Martin in "Scared Stiff" (1953).
