“Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein”

I watched “Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein” (1948) last night on Nolan’s Insomniac Theater.  (Universal monster movies occasionally can help on nights like that.)  It was a lot of fun.

Lou Costello really was a genius, with his madcap physical comedy; he reminds me of Robin Williams every time I see him.  The blink-and-you-miss-it tablecloth bit toward the end is priceless.
