Poor Costello is chained to a brute
Should we welcome his pain as a "hoot"?
Though Lou might be a clod
Bud's a frightful De Sade
Call this swell entertainment "beat cute".
Althoughwe'll be referring to the film as simply Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, its poster title is Bud Abbott and Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein, and the onscreen title is Bud Abbott Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein. Whatever it's actual title, this horror comedy was directed by Charles Barton in 1948.
