A Saturday night alone in front of the tv?  Nothing wrong with that!  While Mick was out having a boys night, I decided to have some fun movies to keep me company.

Abbot & Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)

This movie is exactly what I want out of an A&C flick.  Lou being lovably hilarious.  Bud being his usually cranky self.  A host of guest stars that nearly steal every scene.  In this case, Bud and Lou are joined by none other than Lon Chaney Jr. and Bela Lugosi…because you can’t meet Frankenstein without the Wolfman and Dracula!  There’s some great physical comedy and plenty of zingers.  The story is as silly as can be, but that’s not important.  It’s damn fun, and you should watch it.

Abbot & Costello Meet The Mummy (1955)

After all the fun of Meet Frankenstein, I thought I’d really enjoy Meet the Mummy.  Unfortunately…well, it wasn’t bad.  I guess there’s just so much A&C I can take in one sitting.  I missed the famous faces that were so prevalent in the earlier film, although I did get a jolt of excitement from recognizing Kam Tong (also known as Hey Boy from the brilliant western serial Have Gun Will Travel), with his one line where you don’t even see his face.  I might give the movie another shot at a later date, in which case you’ll hear more then.  For now though…meh.  Feel free to tell me I’m wrong.
