It has been a very long time since I watched this movie, and it still strikes me as one of the greatest comedies ever made.

A lot has been written about this film, and it has a pretty simple plot. Bud and Lou are working at a baggage claim business when they suddenly get a phone call from a mysterious man saying not to deliver two crates because they will be in great danger.

It turns out the caller is Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney) and he turns into a werewolf while on the phone Lou begins barking back into the phone. This scene in itself is priceless.

Needless to say the crates are delivered to McDougal's House Of Horrors, and that is when Dracula and Frankenstein first appear. The scenes in the House Of Horrors are as funny as anything one in film. It seems that Dracula and a female doctor want to put Lou's brain into the monster.

There are some truly funny sight gags and slapstick humor along the way. Comedy has never been better than in this film an if you haven't seen it, you SHOULD!! One of the best films ever made!!

The cast includes, of course, Bela Lugosi as Dracula, Glenn Strange as Frankenstein, Lenore Aubert, Jane Randolph, Frank Ferguson and Charles Bradstreet.
