Spooktober: Abbott & Costello Meet The Mummy (1955)

"Abbott & Costello Meet The Mummy" was the last film the team did for Universal, back in 1955. The supporting cast includes Marie Windsor, Michael Ansara, & Richard Deacon (Leave It To Beaver).

The boys learn of an expedition to bring an ancient Egyptian mummy to America, and finangle a way to join the expedition. Of course, chaos ensues. Filmentertainment uploaded the trailer, which came from TCM:

Ten years later, Universal would release a compilation film, "The World of Abbott & Costello", but by then, Lou Costello had passed on.

Rating: B.
