ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE (1953)

Vintage original 11 x 14” (28 x 35 cm.) title lobby card, U. S. Bud Abbott, Lou Costello, Boris Karloff, dir: Charles LaMont; Universal. One of the finest in the series of Abbot and Costello meet the Universal monsters. Here the two are featured as bumbling cops in a group similar to the Keystone Cops, on the hunt for Mr. Hyde in Victorian England. Karloff plays the great Jekyll/Hyde. Title card features the confused pair in a caricature of the cops, Karloff in both roles and a corseted Helen Westcott. All the ingredients for a hit!
