Now with vaudeville clowns they cavort
In a comedy chiller for sport
Chaney's anguished and wild
Bela's vicious, reviled
Though Glenn's monster stands still just like Gort.

On this poster the film's title is Bud Abbott and Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein (Charles Barton; 1948).There's no Frankenstein in the story, but Lon Chaney Jr plays the Wolf Man, Bela Lugosi Dracula, and Glenn Strange is the mostly immobile Monster. Gort is the robot in The Day the Earth Stood Still.
