Long DescriptionUniversal Pictures made a great deal of money from its monster movies in the 1930s. In the early '40s, the burlesque team of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello kept the studio's coffers full. When the two franchises were combined in 1948, the result was another windfall--despite the apparent oil-and-water mix of subject matter. Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein was the first of these summit meetings, although the title is a misnomer. Actually, Bud and Lou bump into most of the Universal heavy-hitters, including Count Dracula (played by Béla Lugosi himself), the Wolfman (Lon Chaney Jr.), and the Frankenstein monster (veteran monster Glenn Strange). There's even a token appearance by the Invisible Man, whose disembodied voice is recognizable as that of Vincent Price. Sure enough, the film is funny, especially since it gives the portly Costello multiple opportunities to do his wide-eyed, quivering scaredy-cat routine. Audiences ate it up, and in future installments Bud and Lou would run into Boris Karloff, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, the Invisible Man, and the Mummy. But the first was the best. --Robert Horton

Over the past couple weeks we have gone through and updated the way you can help us keep the site up to date. If you are a registered memeber of the site, you can help and earn lookup credits by validating products and putting things in the right category.

We just added a new page that make it very easy to categorize products that are not already in a category. Visit the UNCATEGORISED PAGE and see if you can help us out. If you know where the product goes it only takes a couple clicks to categorize it. If not, just skip it and check the next one.

You get to see a list of 10 items at a time. Once you have looked at them you can use the link at the bottom to get a new set. Categorize as many or as few items as you like.

If you want to help even more, you can go to the PENDING CHANGES page and check the items that other people have entered into the system. If there is nothing pending on this page, you will automatically be given a list of items that need to be categorised. So if you like, you can use this one page do perform both tasks.

We spend a good deal of time each day performing these tasks ourselves but your help is always appreciated and makes things go a lot faster. We plan on making more improvements over time so feel free to send suggestions.
