Wooden Box Office

Unholy, he slept in his crypt
Then slowly he crept out and sipped
Drac's undead and infernal
And it's said he's eternal
But by showbiz inept he is whipped.

Lou Costello as Wilbur Grey, Béla Lugosi as Count Dracula, and Glenn Strange as the Frankenstein Monster, in Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (Charles Barton; 1948), the film that put the final nail in the coffin of Dracula at Universal. Title by box office poisoner David Cairns.
