"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!



Third season Lost in Space. 'Nuff said.

Happy Sunday!

"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!
