"So round, so firm, so fully packed." Lou Costello's scheming girlfriend starts , and he finishes.

That is the best line in Abbott And Costello Meet Frankenstein.
I have never been an Abbott and Costello fan, not even "Who's on First?", nor any of the other bits derived therefrom. Lugosi has always been over-rated. The character of Larry Talbot is a whiny-boy.
Frankenstein's monster isn't Karloff.

Other than that, it's a pretty good movie.

My favorite Mudd episode "Mudd's Women" was on tonight. Roger C. Carmel has steely cunning in this turn, as opposed to the over-the-top comedy of "I, Mudd".

The women are, well..

"Is this your crew, captain?"
"Well, no, captain. This is me cargo."



Kirk trying not to smirk. Such range!

"A&C Meet Frankenstein" was the first Frankenstein and/or Dracula film I ever saw (well . . . for that matter the first A&C film I ever saw). For the longest time I felt the animation depicting Lugosi's transformation in and out of bat form was state of the art.

FYI: One of Mudd's "women" was a Playmate!
